Allegories and Symbols in Counseling
Alvarado, Victor I.; Cavazos, Lionel J.
Journal of Creativity in Mental Health, v2 n3 p51-59 2006-2007
This manuscript describes how counselors can facilitate self-awareness in clients and counselors-in-training through the use of metaphors. The use of metaphors and others symbols provide a creative, non-intrusive, and non-confrontational approach to counseling. Examples of stories and fables used during counseling sessions and instructional lectures are included.
