The Power of Metaphor: Story Telling and Guided Journeys for Trainers and Therapists
Michael Berman and David Brown
This is the first book to combine the use of story telling with visualisation for the purposes of teaching, training and therapy. The techniques are traced back to their original roots in a detailed and probing introduction, and a wealth of practical examples are provided for practise on yourself, your clients and/or your students. Written by two highly respected authors, The Power of Metaphor is a delightful guide to enhancing your teaching, training and therapy sessions using the power of story telling. If you are looking for new therapeutic approaches and alternative ideas, or if you are simply interested in self-development and value what so-called 'primitive' peoples have to offer, this book will prove to be a fascinating and enlightening read.
Michael Berman is currently a full-time research student at Roehampton University as well as being a freelance teacher and writer. Publications include A Multiple Intelligences Road to an ELT Classroom and The Power of Metaphor for Crown House Publishing and The Shaman and the Storyteller for Superscript.
