The Use of Metaphor in Clinical Supervision
Guiffrida, Douglas A.; Jordan, Rachel; Saiz, Stephan; Barnes, Kristin L.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v85 n4 p393-400 Fall 2007
The authors completed a critical review of the literature on the use of metaphor and the efficacy of metaphoric activities in clinical supervision. The authors conclude that these activities might assist students in understanding the process of becoming a counselor and facilitate students' case conceptualization skills. Cautions to consider when implementing metaphoric activities, limitations of research that has investigated the effectiveness of using metaphors in supervision, and suggestions for future research in this area are presented.
