Self-Objects in Clay: Forming Attachment

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

Handmade clay objects are imbued with symbolic energy, making them suitable for addressing relational and attachment constructs. In this Master Class, participants will have the opportunity to work with clay for the day, using directives that encourage the identification of early and/or present attachment representations. Clay's fluid and resistive media properties are especially effective for working with issues of attachment. Establishing safety and containment when working with clay is a particular necessity, and will be prioritized in this session; guidelines for working with clients in this way will also be addressed. Participants will leave the class ready to use clay to work with populations of varied clinical presentations, particularly those suffering with attachment-related distress.

NOTE: Participants should dress for working with clay in a ceramics studio.
