Title: The clinical implications of therapeutic doll making in art therapy with children who have experienced developmental trauma
Synopsis:

Doll making as a directive in the context of art therapy has been little researched on. The purpose of this thesis was to widen the pool of existing data on this topic and provide knowledge on informed practices to practitioners who may want to use doll making with their clients. Through a psychodynamic and trauma-informed lens, this thesis explored the therapeutic benefits of the materials and processes involved in doll making, within an art therapy setting, in children who have experienced developmental trauma such as abuse. A practitioner-based qualitative study was embarked upon and with the use of two case vignettes, it was established that doll making fostered the client-art-therapist relationship, enabled the building of the secure base, and allowed for the reintegration and the building of the self, all of which contributed to the therapeutic healing in children who have experienced developmental trauma.
