Welcome to the OH Cards Institute

Resources on the OH Metaphoric Associative Cards

Our mission is to make the growing resources about Metaphoric Associative Cards, specifically the OH Cards Genre, available to more people. The content of this site is being generated and shared by users worldwide.

We would like to thank all the contributors –  educators, therapists, coaches, social workers, doctors, nurses, trainers and many other professionals. Since they have benefitted from using these tools they are willing to go to some effort to pass on information about how they like to use the cards. And we would like to encourage everyone who feels they have something to share to do so. We appreciate it!

The contributions have been cross-referenced in three ways: by methods, studies, and context. Methods shows ways OH is used in various areas, from counseling to creativity. Studies include scholarly and professional articles, popular magazine articles, videos, and more. Context includes information about OH Cards as seen from various points of view, such as personal, artistic, and cultural.
