The function of the activity with regards to assessment and treatment of young clients is to help preschool children from ages 4-5 to use play dough to express their emotions as preschool children do not have an extensive vocabulary, which hinder their abilities to communicate their feelings (Vernon, 2009). Also, as mentioned in the textbook, Gladding (2005) stressed the importance of using expressive, creative arts because these techniques help engage clients in the counselling process and are effective with a variety of clients. It relates to this activity as preschool children get the opportunity to focus on playing with play dough, while demonstrating their emotions by creating something with the play dough.
