Greg Lubimiv talks to a puppet on May 26, 2017
at the Early Childhood Coalition Quality Education
Committee’s two-day conference, Creating Our
Future: No Strings Attached, at the Heritage Inn.
Greg Lubimiv believes puppets are a great way to help people heal.
Officially employed as the executive director of a children’s mental health unit in Ontario, he has also been working as a trainer of using puppetry in therapy.
“Giving children more than words, giving them things to see, to touch, to feel provides a lot more positive experience,” he told the Times-Herald on Friday. “It’s something that people don’t think about, but it is amazing how impactful those puppets can be.”
