Worry doll workshops enable your child to create their own worry dolls that they can talk to and voice their worries. By putting problems into words, it can blunt their emotional impact. A person (usually a child) who cannot sleep due to worrying can express their worries to a doll and place it under their pillow before going to sleep. Some medical centers use them in conjunction with treatment for disease in children.
According to folklore, the doll is thought to worry in the person’s place, thereby permitting the person to sleep peacefully. The person will wake up without their worries, which have been taken away by the dolls during the night. Parents may remove the doll during the night, reinforcing the child’s belief that the worry is gone. Making the dolls further increases the psychological benefits of releasing worries.
