Therapeutic Animated Forms: from personal to collective memory


This webinar will explain the contemporary practice of puppets and their therapeutic function in the context of health and traumatic memory. Different experiences will be presented specifically with adults; showing the impact they have on this age group, and how, using animated forms to explore traumatic processes at the individual and group level, this approach has a sensory, affective, and cognitive impact. The model Model Therapeutic Animated Forms: Memory and Trauma 2020 will be presented, where some fundamental themes and ideas that support these contemporary therapeutic practices as active therapy will be analysed.
