How can a metaphor motivate one client so powerfully and fall flat with the next? As therapists, we are usually not aware of the things we do that reduce opportunities for client engagement and discovery. How can we fix something that is out of our awareness? Padesky shares central ideas from her forthcoming book on guided discovery including three common signposts of missed opportunities and three responsive strategies for promoting client engagement and discovery.
