what is „therapy with puppets“ about ?
* Robbers and other energy suckers cannot stand the light . Put them onto the stage . Have a good view of them from a personal distance . Perspective .
* Getting a 3D vision of what's inside of me , inoffensive style. Giving shape(s) to complex feelings , values , voices , situations I lived through but am not through with .
* Finding one's own solutions by playing different roles . Gaining in clarity and well-being .
* 'Teach-a-Body' - carrying basic info about body and gender (>education).
* Therapeutic work with puppets is generally seen
as „art“ therapy . This means it is a tool for specific therapeutic concepts
, like psychodrama or Gestalt . These concepts have their own picture of
the human being , their own theory of personality and „norm“ality .
