Unlocking hidden potential through metaphoric communication and conversational trance

Metaphoric communication and conversational trance offer diverse possibilities to trigger off search processes “in-width and in-depth”, to casually remark specific ideas/relevant information to sow different resolutions and ideas. Therapist and client “talk about the problem, without talking (directly) about the problem”. Resistance will therefore be avoided and the client decides (consciously or unconsciously) over and over if and to what extent, he identifies with the metaphor or whether he will distance himself from the experience.

The workshop consists of the fundamentals of working metaphorically (substitution- and intersperse technique, selecting and “tailoring” of structurally fitting metaphors, working with client metaphors, metaphoric resources activation and transfer etc.) to unlock the hidden potential of the client (and the therapist) together with the participants and afterwards demonstrate and/or practice.
