NANCY GERSHMAN is a memory artist and the developer of Dreamscaping, which she has used with individuals and groups for more than a decade. Presenting her work internationally to art therapists, social workers, psychologists, pastoral care counselors, bereavement counselors and others interested in innovative approaches for working with people at the end of life and in the aftermath of significant loss, she also works in a supervisory role, training therapists in the use of dreamscaping for grief and loss.  She has contributed case-based examples of dreamscaping in Robert A. Neimeyer’s Techniques of Grief Therapy (Routledge, 2012, 2016), and in the Annals of American Psychotherapy (2010) with Jenna Baddeley, PhD.  For her work as a memory artist at Visiting Nurse Service of NY, she was featured as NY1’s “New Yorker of the Week” (2016).  Dreamscaping with the eating-disordered clients of art psychotherapist Lauren Lazar Stern led to a traveling exhibition (2013) at New York University, University of Rochester and the University of Chicago. Since 2013, she has been the host of Death Café NYC. She is currently pursuing a Master of Social Work (Class of 2020) at Columbia University School of Social Work, New York City.
