Book Description: I can do everything through him who gives me strength. (Philippians 4:13) Think it takes a professional actor to have a puppet ministry? Think again. This book gives you a step-by-step plan and tons of tips on using puppets to tell children all about Jesus while entertaining them at the same time! Puppets are a wonderful teaching tool. They can be whatever you want them to be. Puppets can take on different personalities, exhibit various character traits, teach different lessons. Kids are drawn to puppets, opening doors and establishing instant trust. Tell a conventional story to kids and watch as their eyes glaze over. Their short attention spans cause them to squirm and by the end they've missed out on the whole point of the story. Use puppets to tell the story and suddenly every eye is on the stage. Your audience stays with you all the way through and weeks later you're still be hearing about the memorable things the puppets said and did--just like kids act when they're talking about their favorite videos or TV shows. Everything you need to start a new puppet ministry or breath new life into an existing one is in this book. The author, Susan Parsons, relates many firsthand experiences she has had during her substantial career as a playwright and puppeteer. Learn about creative ways of making puppets from all sorts of unconventional things. Find out how to build a nifty, professional-looking stage out of PVC pipe--lightweight, easy to work with and affordable. Get pointers on writing and presenting skits, on staging and lighting them, on recruiting people to help you! Also, the book contains puppet patterns and ready-to-present skits which you can use for practice or incorporate right into your ministry! After reading this book you won't just surviveas a puppeteer--you'll thrive! Product Update It has come to our attention that page 59 of The Official Puppet Ministry Survival Guide contains an error in the instructions for constructing the PVC stage. This error will be corrected when the book is next reprinted. Our apologies for the mistake. The correct numbers and dimensions of pieces appear below. 2.5 ft (8 pieces) 2 ft. 9 in. (8 pieces) 3.5 ft. (2 pieces) 4.5 ft. (6 pieces) 6 ft. (2 pieces) Also, page 60 incorrectly lists a 7 ft., 3 in. piece of pipe.

Book Description: Family therapy trainees are inundated with a multitude of family therapy theories. They also have difficulty shifting from an individualistic view to one of seeing interactions and systems. How do therapists hone their own methods with all of these choices? And how do they learn how to best treat families with all of the focus being taken away from their clients and redirected instead on processes? Perhaps most importantly, how can they learn through an inductive process of exploring what has occurred during the therapeutic session? Veteran therapist and founder of Structural Family Therapy, Salvador Minuchin, goes back to basics with his two co-authors Michael D. Reiter and Charmaine Borda in The Craft of Family Therapy. In this book they teach readers basic communication and family therapy skills using some of Dr. Minuchin’s most interesting and illuminating cases. Not only do readers re-learn basic techniques, such as reframing and joining, but they are treated to an in-depth commentary on each case, with Dr. Minuchin emphasizing the techniques he uses that allow him to refocus attention from the Identified Patient to the family as a whole. The book ends with three supervision transcripts from Dr. Minuchin’s students, whose commentary illuminates the struggles, fears, and insecurities that new family therapists face and how they can overcome them. Each of these chapters ends with a consultation interview that Dr. Minuchin conducted with each supervisee’s case family.

Book Description: For the first time ever—a comprehensive biography of one of the twentieth-century’s most innovative creative artists: the incomparable, irreplaceable Jim Henson. He was a gentle dreamer whose genial bearded visage was recognized around the world, but most people got to know him only through the iconic characters he created: Kermit the Frog, Bert and Ernie, Miss Piggy, Big Bird. The Muppets made Jim Henson a household name, but they were only part of his remarkable story. This extraordinary biography--written with the generous cooperation of the Henson family--covers the full arc of Henson’s all-too-brief life: from his childhood in Leland, Mississippi, through the years of burgeoning fame in Washington D.C., New York, and London, to the decade of international celebrity that preceded his untimely death at age fifty-three. Drawing on hundreds of hours of new interviews with Jim Henson's family, friends, and closest collaborators, as well as unprecedented access to private family and company archives--including never-before-seen interviews, business documents, and Henson’s private letters--Brian Jay Jones explores the creation of the Muppets, Henson’s contributions to Sesame Street and Saturday Night Live, and his nearly ten year campaign to bring The Muppet Show to television. Jones provides the imaginative context for Henson’s non-Muppet projects, including the richly imagined worlds of The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth—as well as fascinating misfires like Henson’s dream of opening an inflatable psychedelic nightclub or of staging an elaborate, all-puppet Broadway show. An uncommonly intimate portrait, Jim Henson captures all the facets of this American original: the master craftsman who revolutionized the presentation of puppets on television, the savvy businessman whose deal making prowess won him a reputation as “the new Walt Disney,” and the creative team leader whose collaborative ethos earned him the undying loyalty of everyone who worked for him. Here also is insight into Henson’s intensely private personal life: his Christian Science upbringing; his love of fast cars, high-stakes gambling, and expensive art; and his weakness for women. Though an optimist by nature, Henson was haunted by the notion that he would not have time to do all the things he wanted to do in life—a fear that his heartbreaking final hours would prove all too well-founded. An up-close look at the charmed life of a legend, Jim Henson gives the full measure to a man whose joyful genius transcended age, language, geography, and culture—and continues to beguile audiences worldwide.
