The Use of Clay in Therapeutic Work with Individuals and Families

The Use of Clay in Therapeutic Work with Individuals and Families

In this presentation Dr Lynne Souter-Anderson will share a little of her story on how she came to be interested in using clay in therapy. She will then move into illustrating how she works with clay in therapy with children and adolescents by showing a ‘live’ demonstration with a reticent puppet! Following this she will talk about the therapeutic benefits of clay play and clay work.

"When problems can be seen it is easier to share difficulties by talking them through with a qualified practitioner in a safe environment. Clay Therapy is a form of active psychotherapy where unidentified and unexpressed feelings and emotions become visible through physical manipulation of clay.
Clay Therapy enables communication when problems are hard to put into words. This makes it a universal language for fostering emotional intelligence and is especially helpful when working with issues such as anger, bereavement, loss, attachment, separation, harassment, bullying, sexual identity, transgender issues, shame, and guilt."
