Metaphoria: Metaphor and Guided Imagery for Psychotherapy and Healing
By Rubin Battino

This is the comprehensive guide for all those wishing to explore the fascinating potential of metaphor. Conducting a systematic analysis of the effectiveness of metaphor, this work examines:

  • the structure of a metaphor: from its essential elements to its optional components
  • the delivery of metaphor: from rapport-building and communication skills to the art of effective story-telling
  • what makes metaphor work, with examples of poor and good usage.


Forming a complete reference and resource for clinician and therapist, Metaphoria investigates:

  • the application of metaphor for all ages
  • the use of metaphor in specific approaches such as: sleep induction, pain control, trauma, re-framing, art therapy, hypnotherapy, healing, preparation for surgery, narrative therapy, solution-focused therapy and ordeal therapy
  • language forms
  • metaphor in Ericksonian psychotherapy and hypnosis
  • themes and ideas.


Containing sample scripts and suggestions for basic and advanced metaphors, plus a history of the use of metaphor, Metaphoria provides readers with everything they need to fully comprehend the metaphor's unique properties and to create metaphors for their own unique purposes.
