This one hour and 9 minute educational lecture explores the Theory of Object Relations and further clarifies how objects in our daily lives such as sea shells, toys, cups, and photographs can be utilized in therapeutic programming for individuals in any stage of life and for those individuals currently living in Skilled Nursing Facilities.

An in-depth discussion of how both long-term and short-term memories can be accessed through the use of objects, thus exposing the individual’s past or present life in fuller detail, is presented. The sharing of personal information through object relations theory enables the therapist and the individual to connect on a deeper level, which facilitates powerful and meaningful programming.

Case studies on a number of individuals will be explored through their own words and art images. This DVD comes with a body relaxation exercise, as well as guided imagery, to use with your own populations.
