Abstract

WITNEY, Mike N.. Using metaphor and narrative ideas in trauma and family therapy. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2012, vol.68, n.2, pp. 99-104. ISSN 0259-9422.

This results in people in South Africa suffering from anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other severe mental health issues.

In this article I looked at using narrative ideas and metaphor in therapy with trauma and family therapy.
