A Sensorimotor Approach to Healing Using the “Clay Field”


Sunday, November 4th, 2018 12:30-3:00 PM
Greenwich House
27 Barrow Street, 4th Floor
New York, NY 10014

The presenters will introduce and demonstrate Work at the Clay Field, in which a person engages with a flat field of clay held in a shallow wooden box. What emerges as they follow the impulses of their hands is a sensorimotor experience that facilitates the meeting of developmental needs and the release of the effects of trauma held in the body. It can be used with all age groups, from toddlers to the elderly.  Work at the Clay Field is little known outside of Germany and Australia. It was developed in Germany in 1972 by Heinz Deuser and has only recently been available to non-German speakers, primarily through the trainings offered in Australia by Deuser’s long-time student Cornelia Elbrecht, whose book Trauma Healing at the Clay Field was published in 2013. International trainings in English became available only in 2016.
