Abstract

The authors explore the use of metaphors as a training tool for beginning counselors for enhancing client case conceptualization, counselor-client relationships, and intervention strategies. The history of the use of metaphors in counseling, several definitions, and a case study are presented. The authors discuss intentional use of metaphors with students in training and with clients. How to introduce the use of metaphors into counselor training and practice is also included.
