Puppets

Puppets are used in individual, family, and group sessions to engage clients to create a story.  Puppets are used to allow children to explore their issues and come up with their own solution.  Children will project their feelings and thoughts into their stories.  Children are able to feel safe while expressing themselves.  Parsons Counseling has several kinds of puppets from people to animals representing aggressive and calm characteristics.  Children use the puppets of their choosing, come up with their story, and relate their story back to their current issue that they are struggling with, in most cases.
