Metaphor -- Therapeutic use;

Abstract

"To describe life we need metaphors: objectivity will not suffice" (Minuchin, 1984, p. 11). Metaphors are a method to enhance our language, providing a clearer, more concrete understanding of the situations in life. The use of metaphors helps prepare clients to experience other therapeutic interventions more readily. Low functioning clients commonly have difficulty with therapeutic approaches which require abstract thinking. By normalizing and reframing the problem, metaphors provide openings for other therapies.
