"Keeping pace with today's interest in, and awareness of, narrative and metaphor in psychotherapy, this new resource provides practitioners with an extremely concise overview of Milton Erickson's work; a simple, systematic, seven-step approach to employing narrative and metaphor effectively; and an encyclopedic compendium of fables, myths, anecdotes, quotes, fairy tales, and stories to put to immediate use." "In Flash of Insight, author Stephen Pearce shows how metaphor works, how it helps clients to establish a sense of cultural identity, and how using narrative with them can be physically and emotionally curative and redemptive - while actually speeding up the therapeutic process. Interdisciplinary in scope and application, the book draws on linguistic, anthropological, and psychological currents to emphasize the importance of narrative and metaphor which influence thought and behavior both in the therapeutic setting and in the lives of people."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
