Healing Art of Clay Therapy, The

The Healing Art of Clay Therapy is a handbook with step-by-step guidelines for working with clay in a therapeutic context.This book is an invaluable tool for therapists in a range of professions but particularly counsellors, art therapists, psychotherapists, health therapists and bodybased therapists.

Strong, concrete, immediate and empowering - these are the qualities of clay therapy. Clay therapy provides inarticulate clients with a powerful medium through which to convey his/her experiences directly with the counsellor. Clay therapy is used to work vividly and transformatively with anger, grief, fear, family of origin issues, couple communication and blocked speaking.

Based on the author's work as a clay therapist, The Healing Art of Clay Therapy precisely describes the therapeutic steps and documents them with photographs.This book provides therapists with the means to add this profoundly healing modality to their practice.
