Healing Trauma in Children with Clay Field Therapy

We rated this book:


Whether we want to admit it or not, we are essentially controlled by our mind and emotions. In Healing Trauma in Children with Clay Field Therapy, Cornelia Elbrecht dives deep into the benefits of touch for the psych; in this case, touch through the vessel of clay. Clay could sound like a material used by an artist or student in art class, but when you break through the layers, it is much more. It represents the variety of layers that we as humans contain. Part one sets out the framework of clay field therapy and why this topic matters to children, especially those with trauma. Part two explains the nine developmental building blocks. Part three concludes with case examples to prove the success of this mode of therapy.

With a background and interest in mental health, I found this book to be enlightening and felt like I had taken a mini collegiate course. I am constantly amazed by how strong yet fragile the human mind and body are. I learned so much in this book that I can apply to those around me. I am familiar with play and sand therapy, and I love that there is another option besides talk that can bring about healthy change.
