Nature-based intervention for working with children: Using stones to process difficult material

Updated: Jun 14, 2021

We are aware of the wellness benefits of being connected with nature. However, at times, it can seem impossible to find a moment or a day to connect.

Bringing nature elements into the session can be used as a metaphor to help our clients to connect with their inner resources.

In this video, I share some ideas as to how to integrate stonework via telehealth to process difficult emotions, traumatic memories, symptoms, and grief.
