An identified weakness of this paper was the lack of clarity around the collection and interpretation of data. Regardless the use of the puppet be it as a therapeutic tool or for play, puppets support children attaining knowledge and control of their disease whilst simultaneously providing an avenue for selfexpression and stress reduction Hall et al.
In each of the studies puppets were chosen as the tool for communication as they were an age appropriate toy that suited the child's level of development; and because children choose to engage in activities that involve toys Hartwig, The authors concluded that children chose puppets as a medium to assist them to express themselves.
A finding substantiated by others who have reported the benefits of children projecting their experiences onto and through puppets Ahlcrona, , Hall et al.

Full-text available. Dec Vanessa Tilbrook. The use of puppets in health care is emerging as a mode of simulation that combines elements of engaging with the child through play whilst at the same time providing education.
This review examines the impact when nurses use play therapy or puppets as a simulation modality in nursing education and in the clinical paediatric nursing environment.
Twelve articles were identified that highlight the use of puppet simulation in the education of nursing students and children in the healthcare environment.
Puppet modelling and puppet simulation is predominantly adopted in the areas of health education and specifically diabetes education.
Identified gaps in the use of puppet simulation in nursing, nurse education and puppet simulation as a three-way communication process; thus identifying the need for further research on puppet simulation and its application and benefits in nursing and nurse education.
Sep Metaphors and beyond: A journey of healing using art and play based interventions. Apr Palliative care for children goes beyond just pain control and symptom management. It is a holistic model that also caters to the psychosocial aspects of the patient, their relationships, hopes, fears and wishes.
Children seldom talk about their experiences, reactions, perceptions, feelings, wishes, wants or needs like adults do. Play is considered to be the natural language of a child.
The symbolic language of play often reveals the child's inner world. This understanding can help the professionals to facilitate communication between parents and the dying child and thereby promote healing during the dying process.
Social development as preference management: How infants, children, and parents get what they want from one another. Jan Rachel Karniol. This engaging book presents social development in children through the language of preference management.
The language of preferences is used to crack into altruism, aggression, and morality, which are ways of coming to terms with other people's preferences.
Behind the scenes is a cognitive engine that uses transformational thought-conducting temporal, imaginal, and mental transformations-to figure out other people's preferences and to find more sophisticated means of outmaneuvering others by persuading them and playing with one's own mind and other people's minds when preferences are blocked.
This book is a unique and sometimes amusing must-read for anyone interested in child development, language acquisition, socialization, and communication.
Feb Joohun Lee Haehyun Jung. The pleasure and interaction offered by interactive media art could be fully facilitated as play tool for children, not just for its contribution to physical development but also for emotional and cognitive development as well.
Media art works which stimulate five senses and induce physical exercise can overcome the side effects of digital game devices and can be useful as a play therapy that brings out sound emotion and allows cognitive development.
Ingredients such as sand and bell used for such art, therefore, deserves recognition as a 'User Interface' for play therapy that stimulates five senses.
Oct Professional school counselors have been in the public schools since the early s. Fueled by the industrial revolution, the vocational guidance movement spawned the creation of high school guidance counseling programs.
In , Jesse B. Davis created one of the first vocational guidance programs at Central High School in Detroit, Michigan Schmidt, In , Frank Parsons, the father of vocational guidance, founded the Vocations Bureau that eventually became part of the Division of Education at Harvard University.

Aug This paper explores the role of a positive education paradigm in mainstream and specialist classrooms for students who have experienced complex trauma resulting from abuse, neglect, violence, or being witness to violence.
Existing trauma-informed education focuses on repairing regulatory abilities and repairing disrupted attachment in students.
However, a dual-continua model of mental health suggests that repairing deficits is only part of the education response needed to nurture well-being in trauma-affected students. Trauma-informed education can be conceived from both a deficit perspective e.
This paper develops the strengths-based trauma-informed positive education TIPE approach which proposes three domains of learning needed for trauma-affected students: repairing regulatory abilities, repairing disrupted attachment, and increasing psychological resources.
It is argued that the three domains support each other via synergistic interactions which create upward spirals to increase psychological growth.
The TIPE model will make a contribution to research in positive education, positive psychology, and traumatology, with the applied context of assisting classroom teachers and school-based practitioners to meet the complex behavioral, cognitive, and relational needs of students struggling in schools.
