Target: Since 1993 he worked as a workshop leader delivering puppet workshops in the community in a variety of settings with diverse groups including schools, youth groups, children in care, special needs groups, prisons, hospitals, with environmental agencies, and with the homeless. Through this practice, he adopted a relational non-therapeutic approach to workshops in which sensitive respect for the individual’s autonomy was tantamount.
