School of Creative Arts Therapies

 I am a lecturer and a researcher at the Graduate School of Creative Arts Therapies, the University of Haifa, Israel,  and a research fellow at the Center for the Study of Child Development. I hold a master’s in Psychoanalytic Developmental Psychology, and a Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology and an MsC in Drama Therapy. My main research interests are connecting attachment theory to clinical therapeutic work; developmental psychopathology;  and the role of  play, drama and movement in psychotherapy. In addition to my research work I have been working clinically mostly with adults with mental health problems and people with intellectual disability.
