A Pocket of Stones

A Pocket of Stones consists of 12 ceramic heads hand-crafted by Yvonne Cahill, an artist and social worker from Castlemaine in Central Victoria. Each head is approximately 30 x 30mm and is expressing a different emotion. The set of 12 stone heads come in an attractive canvas pouch with a drawstring. Attached to the pouch is a small booklet of suggestions on how to use the stones, including tips for their use in family work. This unique resource can be used by itself or with other play therapy materials to open up conversations about what is happening in our lives and how we stay in charge of our feelings.

  • Which stone represents how you are feelings today?
  • Which stone is you on the outside and which is you on the inside?
  • Which stone would you like to be?
  • Would it help if you kept a stone in your pocket to remind you of the feelings you want to have or the person you want to be?

Social workers, pre-school and primary teachers, chaplains, early childhood workers, brickies, stone masons and psychologists: here’s a truly hands-on resource for walking the rocky road towards emotional wellbeing.
