Helping Clients Uncover Metaphoric Understandings of Bulimia.
Cummings, Anne L.
Canadian Journal of Counselling, v32 n3 p230-41 Jul 1998
Written responses of three women with bulimia were analyzed for instances of metaphoric understanding of their difficulties with food during 20 to 24 therapy sessions. Results show a gradual deepening of the metaphoric understanding of what the troubled eating represented for each client. Metaphoric understanding included ways of dealing with self and others. (MKA)
