Metaphors in Mind

Metaphors in Mind : Transformation Through Symbolic Modelling

What do you do as a therapist, teacher, doctor or manager when your client, student, patient or colleague says It's like I'm hitting my head against a brick wall, I've got a knot in my stomach or I'm looking for the right path to take?

Metaphors in Mind describes how to give individuals an opportunity to discover how their symbolic perceptions are organised, what needs to happen for these to change, and how they can develop as a result.

Based on David Grove's pioneering therapeutic approach and use of Clean Language, Symbolic Modelling is an emergent, systemic and iterative way of facilitating the psychotherapeutic process.

This comprehensive book covers the theory of metaphor, self-organising systems, symbolic modelling, the practice of Clean Language, the five-stage therapeutic process, and includes three client transcripts.
