The application of puppet-making and narrative in therapy, with emphasis on dissociative individuals and groups

About the Author

Lani Gerity worked with dissociative adults for more than a decade in New York and has presented internationally and written on the dissociative patient, and on puppetry with adults. She currently practises art therapy in Ontario, Canada, assists with an art therapy programme for refugee children, serves as a visiting faculty member at New York University, and leads puppet-making workshops.


The author makes an excellent case for the study of puppetry as a transitional object to help clients work through feelings of personal trauma. -- OTPLD Newsletter
