Metaphor-Visual Aid in Grief Work.
Schwartz-Borden, Gwen
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v25 n3 p239-48 1992
Sees use of metaphor as providing powerful and useful framework for lowering resistance to pain of bereavement for parental grief. Contends that metaphor offers graphic, nonjudgmental symbolic representation through which mourner may freely express sorrow, loss, anger, and guilt needed to accomplish tasks of grieving. Notes that neutral symbol can help facilitate normalization and universalization of grief responses. (Author/NB)
