Puppet-Making & Puppetry in Expressive Therapies: More Than Child's Play

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Puppetry is a form of theater that is near universal in human societies since ancient times. While puppetry can take many forms, its rich history of storytelling with archetypes can be a powerful, culturally relevant clinical tool.  This all-day experiential will introduce various styles of puppetry (including the shadow and the rod), their methods of construction, and case examples of their uses in mental health counseling and expressive therapies with adult and child populations. Archetypes can be used in puppet-making and puppetry to explore universal patterns of behavior and thinking in an interactive way.  In this Master Class, participants will create puppets that embody two archetypes, The Critic and The Muse, and will gain firsthand experience on how clients can use these puppets to explore their strengths, maladaptive defenses, and varied daily-life challenges. Join us to expand your range of creative clinical tools while discovering the joy of puppet-making!
