Deep Clay: Getting the Inside Out

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!


The beauty of clay is that it can take any form; the tactile experience of working with it in therapy can enhance and enrich the process of self-exploration and transformation. This daylong Master Class will explore this shape-shifting medium through an in-depth, hands-on approach. Coupled with journaling and peer discussion, participants will have the opportunity to experience the use of clay as a way to relieve stress, stimulate the imagination, and discover deep connections within. We'll also explore the interrelationships of developmental levels of expression, play, resistance, diagnosis, psychotherapeutic interaction, and the limits and advantages of ceramic materials and techniques in the therapeutic context. The information and experiences offered will be applicable to clinical treatment with diverse populations.

Eligible for 6.0 Credit Hours: ATCB, NBCC; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing; SWNYS
