Metaphor primarily activates the client’s sub-dominant hemisphere, and this can be utilized without knowing the content of the problem. Asking a client to discover more about their metaphor for a problem is a way to communicate directly with their unconscious understandings, which are often the keys to making useful changes.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Distinguish between a client’s guiding metaphor and a mere “figure of speech.”
  2. List the four major criteria for expanding a client’s metaphor in a useful way.
