The language a therapist uses to conceptualize and treat a problem determines whether or not that problem can be resolved effectively. Plato’s story of the cave, where the inhabitants see only shadows, is a useful metaphor for how the language of therapy can generate either confusion or clarity. The workshop will teach a method of effectively treating severe problems of children and adolescents, using an invariant opening question, strategic dialogue and metaphorical techniques.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe how to interpret child and adolescent problems as behavioral metaphors.
  2. Explain how to use the strategically worded opening question that opens up a child or adolescent’s problem or system to brief, effective resolution.
