A persona doll is a doll developed by a practitioner/educator to enable children to gain an awareness and understanding of the richness and diversity of different backgrounds and lifestyles as well as to help children learn strategies for dealing with unfairness against themselves and others.
The dolls are given personalities, family and cultural backgrounds, likes and dislikes and the stories that are created around them enable children to explore positive and negative emotions.
Persona dolls can be used by teachers, psychologists and counsellors for education play therapy or professional development.
My set of Persona dolls represent various profiles and aspects of gifted students.
How would you utilize this set of dolls in your classroom or practice?
