Adams, Cynthia Herbert; Chadbourne, Joan
Personnel and Guidance Journal, v60 n8 p510-12 Apr 1982
Describes how metaphors can be used in a weight control approach to: (1) uncover underlying feelings; (2) reveal hidden solutions; (3) create an aversion to undesirable intakes; (4) provide the client with a thin self-concept; and (5) increase compliance. Provides examples to demonstrate these uses. (Author/RC)
