Using Metaphors in Therapy: Dichos and Latino Clients.
Zuniga, Maria E.
Social Work, v37 n1 p55-60 Jan 1992
Contends that metaphors can be used in psychotherapy with Latino clients through incorporation of dichos, or sayings, that exist in Mexican American and other Latino cultures. Sees dichos as offering clinicians culturally feasible tools for mitigating resistance, enhancing motivation, or reframing problems, and they provide an ambience that contributes to culturally sensitive treatment.
