Metaphor has a unique power in counselling and therapy. According to Rubin Battino (2002) metaphors provides a cluster or gestalt of associations; resist reduction; facilitate thinking; are more compelling than structured language; and aid assimilation. Most of all they provide a link between conscious and subconscious process and can be extremely potent in therapy.
This one day workshop on therapeutic metaphor will investigate different types of metaphor, including transferential, communicative and therapeutic. Models including the Client Generated Mataphor Model of Richard Kopp; Adlerian Early Memory Metaphor; and the Trauma Resolution Metaphor Model conceived by the late David Grove will be reviewed, explained and demonstrated through case studies, DVDs and experientially in the group.
This fascinating subject, which has relevance to all models of counselling and psychotherapy, will be reviewed in a current context by Jonathan Lloyd who will shortly complete his Doctorate in Counselling researching the subject.
6 hours CPD, a certificate of attendance will be issued.
The venue is yet to be finalised, but it will be in or near to Stockport.
The cost is £60 per person (£40 for full time students), with a £10 ‘early bird’ discount for reservation made before 30th March.
