Therapeutic play with children is an effective clinical intervention that has been successfully utilized by therapists for many years. Various techniques of play therapy have been used ranging from free play to structured projects with great therapeutic success. Clay therapy is known as an effective tool to use with children and adults. Thousands of therapists who currently employ Clay therapy report its usefulness and the effectiveness (Sherwood, 2004).
Clay has always been a toy for children and a natural source to get in touch with inner parts of oneself. Therapists use clay as a means to enhance the therapeutic relationship and support the clinical process. Clay provides children with a natural method of connection and expression (Schaefer & Kaduson, 2006).
We use Clay therapy as a means to help children gain awareness of their unacknowledged emotions. Making Clay items is a gentle way for children to portray their negative emotions into something they have created themselves and give them a tool to get in touch, at a deeper and more engaged level, with those unaddressed emotional experiences. This is a powerful tool for anyone to uncover their challenging and suppressed emotions through a safe and positive avenue.
