Working with Metaphors in Supervision: a Clean Language Approach
Metaphors are fundamental to language, offering a shorthand way of describing something in terms of another thing or experience. Clean Language originator David Grove explained, ‘Metaphor mediates the interface between conscious and unconscious processes’, which affords us the ability for powerful exploration in supervision.
This highly interactive webinar focusses on how to work Cleanly with supervisees’ metaphors, how to elicit metaphors, and how not to influence others’ metaphors. You’ll practise tuning your ear for metaphors and symbols, ask Clean Questions, draw out and develop supervisee’s metaphorical descriptions and pay close attention to language. You’ll experience how this approach, combined with a strong relational presence, offers access to unconscious thinking, quickly and easily.
