| The use of puppet media empowers adults and children to explore a range of subjects and issues. The use of puppets allows people to say and do things that they would be hesitant to say or do without a puppet. By including various kinds, degrees, and states of experience in the course of dialog and interaction with puppets, a rich exploration of issues and challenges can be achieved.
Such variations of experience include:
* Expression of feelings
* State of mind
* Nurturing, caring, safety)
* Communicating (reaching out)
* Articulating (reaching in)
* Sharing (giving and receiving)
Whenever there is an issue, theme, problem, or challenge to consider, ask whether there is a book or puppet or story to be told, made up, shared, or presented to aid in its processing or resolution.
