Theresa Fraser contributed the chapter “Memory Quilt or Pillow” in the book Assessment and Treatment Activities for Children, Adolescents, and Families: Practitioners Share Their Most Effective Techniques
This book chapter describes the use of a memory quilt or pillow in therapy with the goal to:
• Gather information about the client's interests, feelings, and needs
• Increase open communication
• Allow the client to discuss positive experiences shared with significant caregivers
• Encourage the client to identify and verbally express the loss of significant past relationships with natural family members or with faster families
• Help the client to identify goals for current or future relationships
