From Tragedy to Triumph: Counselor as Companion on the Hero's Journey.
Halstead, Richard W.
Counseling and Values, v44 n2 p100-06 Jan 2000
A counselor discusses his experiences while working with a male client on a "hero's journey," or the path to self-realization. The author explains how he grappled with what his role, as counselor, should be in this process. He concludes that he should act as the "hero's travel guide," someone who makes the clients' path shorter, smoother, or less painful. (MKA)
