Working Therapeutically with Metaphor

Wednesday 3 rd July 2024 9.30-12.30

Venue: TBC

Metaphor is one of the key forms of comparative description in poetry and prose and we use them
all the time in our figurative speech; as such they are a useful tool when working with children. Using
metaphor can provide an opportunity for children to talk about confusing and difficult thoughts and
feelings. Using metaphors to explore similarities and common ground in difficult experiences can
help children normalise their responses to the challenges they may be facing and help them feel less
This course will enable you to:
 Identify when and where we use metaphor in everyday life.
 Explore the theory relating to how metaphor can help children process difficult feelings.
 Understand when and where metaphor might be useful for children.
 Explore how metaphor can be introduced through activities with children.
