Abstract

Everyone can tell a story about an object. We encounter all sorts of objects and things throughout our lives, some of which we hold near and dear whilst others are sent to the trash bin. This presentation takes a look at the psychological meaning and significance of objects to our wellbeing and creativity and why they are essential parts of our life. Please come with a story to share about an object you love or hate!
