When therapists hear patients talk of feeling "imprisoned," "burning with rage," "trapped," or "unequipped," they are witnessing manifestations of the symbolic attitude, the hallmark of all depth psychology. Most clinicians naturally respond to and use metaphors, but they often fail to understand the full potential of metaphoric images. This volume, in addressing the transforming power of metaphor, demonstrates how clinicians can deepen the therapeutic encounter.

Grasping abstract concepts embedded in mental health training can be challenging! Students, trainees and supervisees often feel frustrated with the vast ambiguity present in clinical training. This teaching guide breaks though the haze by introducing a variety of metaphors to help instructors and supervisors clearly explain the therapeutic process. From case conceptualization to the importance of self-care, each metaphor opens a creative path for exploring foundational concepts. Each chapter provides the metaphor, key points for metaphor conceptualization, modifications and sample questions for group supervision, ethical and cultural considerations, potential roadblocks and additional applications of the metaphor. This resource benefits professionals at all levels of training that want to strike the match on professional growth! This teaching tool has been endorsed by the following leaders in the helping profession: "Metaphors and Therapy: Enhancing Clinical Supervision and Education provides a practical, refreshing, and creative alternative to teaching beginning counselors and therapists how to understand the therapeutic process. Since each metaphor targets the concern the metaphor is intended to address (self-care, trauma, case conceptualization, etc.) and the chapters consistently address the same key elements, the book is easy to use. My favorite aspect of the book, however, is the fact that the metaphors transcend theory and suggest different solutions and views of life's challenges. I think this text is a much needed and overdue resource for the clinical supervision and education of members of the helping professions that could dramatically change some of the ways we currently approach the supervisory and educational process." David Capuzzi, Ph.D, LPC, NCC, Counselor Educator, A Past President of American Counseling Association "This book provides a unique and interesting way of viewing the interaction between psychotherapy and metaphors. It takes a practical look at the process of therapy through a non-traditional, 21st century lens as it explores the powerful and frequently overlooked element of metaphors for therapy. New and experienced therapists, clinical supervisors and counselor educators will find this book to be a valuable resource." Mike Dubi, Ed.D., LMHC, President/CEO of International Association of Trauma Professionals, "This is a book that is long overdue. I am excited to see the recognition of metaphors pertaining to the therapist-client relationship in the context of ethical practice, self-care, cultural competence and resiliency." Lee A. Underwood, PsyD., Professor/Director of the Center for Addictive and Offender Research at Regent University

The use of metaphor is central to the implementation of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and is a powerful tool for all practicing psychotherapists. In Metaphor in Practice, psychotherapist Niklas Törneke presents the first practical book to combine the behavioral and linguistic sciences of metaphor, and illustrates how and when to apply metaphors in practice for better treatment outcomes. The use of metaphors and experiential exercises can help clients gain a deeper understanding of the problems that cause their disorders. Metaphors help clients connect with their values, and often spark the inspiration and motivation needed to make a commitment to change. And while metaphor is central to relational frame theory (RFT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), research now shows its usefulness has an even broader reach. In this book, you’ll find a scientific analysis of metaphor based on over thirty years of research, as well as trends in research over the last ten years. The book includes an overview of RFT, how metaphor has influenced the community of behavior analysis, as well as available clinical research on metaphor use. You’ll also discover how to create metaphors for functional analysis, distance of observation, and things that matter to your client. Most importantly, you’ll find practical examples of metaphors and clinical exercises you can use in-session. There are many books on metaphor and psychotherapy, but this is the first book to make the connection between the science of metaphor and the detailed clinical process of using that knowledge. If you are a mental health professional—or simply interested in the science of metaphor—this book will provide everything you need to understand and apply this approach.

This book represents a bold attempt to address contemporary issues in both metaphor and psychotherapy research. On one hand, metaphor research is increasingly concerned not just with describing metaphors in discourse, but how they could be used more adroitly in purposive ‘real world’ contexts such as psychotherapy. On the other hand, while a growing number of mental health professionals believe that metaphors contribute in some way to the psychotherapy process, their ability and willingness to use metaphors might be compromised by a relative unfamiliarity with the various nuanced aspects of metaphor theory. The present analysis of metaphors in authentic psychotherapeutic talk brings these theoretical aspects to the forefront, and suggests how they can be applied to enhance the use of communication of metaphors in psychotherapy. It should be of interest to metaphor researchers, mental health professionals, and discourse analysts in general.
