This qualitative study is a preliminary inquiry into a proposed art-therapy intervention for individuals suffering from problems resulting from broken attachment bonds with their primary caregivers. This arts-based Intervention research draws from attachment theories and trauma literature, while exploring the concept of boxes and containment within art therapy. This study explores parallels between the individual as being the container for their emotions physically and metaphorically with the concept of projecting these emotions into a set of physical containers: the nesting dolls. This study is concerned with the exploration of the emotional experience of the relationship between the individual and their primary caregiver across time.
