This workshop will examine the use and construction of metaphor as part of the process of change. Special attention will be given to understanding the relational context of change, and how the therapist can assist clients in creatively overcoming learned limitations and patterns. Participants will learn the principles of metaphor construction and their application to the facilitation of new meaning and different patterns of consciousness in the client. Experiential exercises and opportunities for skill practice will be provided.
