Title: Doll making as response art: an inquiry into its functions and mechanisms
Synopsis:

This thesis is an inquiry into the use of doll making as response art. Its purpose was to explore the functions doll making serve as response art and the mechanisms behind it. To achieve this, the author embarked on a qualitative autoethnographic approach to describe and analyze her experience from her perspective as a psychodynamic trained art therapist working with young persons with cancer in Singapore. Thematic analysis was conducted on the data collected and uncovered three themes: The doll making process, The final doll product, and The functions of the dolls. The dolls were found to aid in expressing and containing experiences, sublimating thoughts and feelings, increasing self-awareness, building empathy for clients, informing clinical assessment and interventions and easing transition out of therapy sessions. These were achieved through the doll making process and final doll products which were characterised by the therapeutic effects of haptic sense and touch, repetitive processes, and embodied images.
