Making Meaning: Clay Therapy with Children and Adolescents

We are pleased to announce the publication of this important title from Dr Lynne Souter-Anderson. We have already published her first and third books Touching Clay, Touching What? : The Use of Clay in Therapy (2010) and Seeking Shelter, Seeking Safety: Clay Therapy for Families and Groups (2019).

With the 'rights' of her second book becoming available, Lynne chose to re-publish with us. This is what she had to say about the revised title:

My aim in writing, Making Meaning: Clay Therapy with Children and Adolescents has been to offer contemporary perspectives on the application of working with clay in therapy sessions with a young client group. The content of this book has been drawn fully from my own experiences while delivering therapy education and in the course of clinical practice. Although there is obvious relevance to practitioners and trainees working in the arts, play and drama therapies this book essentially is of value to therapists from varied theoretical backgrounds. The intention here has been to make the modality of clay therapy readily accessible to all practitioners by deepening understanding of the process involved, whilst at the same time developing the skills repertoire for this particular client base. Another intention of this book is to offer validation to you, the practitioner seeking to work with the creative arts in settings where the environment is not so easily controlled — in that children and therapy rooms can be less predictable!.

This re-published title will be launched at the National Conference of Clay Therapy and Conversations, being held in Peterborough on 15th-16th March.

Available from us; from bookshops and online outlets throughout the world…
