The Use of Metaphor to Overcome Inmate Resistance to Mental Health Counseling.
Romig, Charles A.; Gruenke, Carol
Journal of Counseling and Development, v69 n5 p414-18 May-Jun 1991
Provides an overview of prison inmate resistance to mental health counseling and describes ways that indirect, metaphorical communication can be used to establish rapport with this client population. Establishing rapport is difficult because of the suspicion that inmate clients have toward mental health professionals and the correctional system they represent. Two case examples are included to illustrate these techniques. (LLL)
