Using a Metaphor in Working with Disaster Survivors.
Carmichael, Karla D.
Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v25 n1 p7-15 Mar 2000
Describes group intervention based on the story of The Wizard of Oz, in response to tornado in a small rural community. Approximately 30 people participated in the psychoeducational group led by faculty from a nearby college. The therapeutic metaphor served three functions: to remember, to teach, and to motivate. This allowed survivors to see their personal processes of recovery. (Author/JDM)
