What do therapists, teachers, doctors or managers do when their clients, students, patients or colleagues say, "It's like I'm hitting my head against a brick wall," "I've got a knot in my stomach" or "I'm looking for the right path to take"?
Metaphors in Mind describes Symbolic Modelling – an emergent, systemic and iterative process. It covers how symbolic perceptions are organised and change, and how people develop as a result; metaphor; David Grove's Clean Language; self-organising systems; a 5-stage therapeutic process and client transcripts.
