Here is a testimonial from one of our customers:
"We had a client in our program, 13 year old with emotional outbursts and volitale behaviors with a HUGE heart just needing love. From the point of intake she had trouble verbalizing her feelings of mistrust, anger, and fear. For 2 months counselors attempted to help draw out, through several different creative activites, including the climbing tower, chair scultpting and crafts. She could not find the words throughout any of these activities. Our supervisor, suggested the body part bag. We listened and prepared an activity, utilizing the body part bag! Such a wonderful and enlightening journey into emotional discussions. The client immediately choose the heart and began discussing the pain, mistrust and fear, which her heart had experinced in the past. After the activity, she progressively verbalized a range of emotions and particpated more frequently in the therapeutic activites. Thanks to the body bag we came up with several ways to use the parts in different groups. We continue to use the parts in our after school program."
