Problem Domains And Non-Traumatic Resolution Through Metaphor Therapy
The quadrants provide a sense of the holographic nature of problem domains and provide a context for understanding how the mechanisms function in a matrix of space and time. The objective of this therapy is to find a solution to a particular problem domain by tracing the undesirable symptom back through time to its originator. A powerful 'redemptive metaphor' can then be discovered prior to the origination that can be utilized to heal the etiology and its entire evolution into the client's life.
Lisa's Tapestry - A Quadrant II Intervention
Paul's Fear - Quadrant IV Intervention
This intervention by David Grove is taken from a therapist training video called Tapestry.
The client comes with a long-standing feeling of shame. An important feature of this intervention is how David works in such a way that the client does not have to reveal the content of the particular experience.
The following is a demonstration conducted by David Grove with a volunteer Paul, in front of an audience. In this unravelling of information and lecture to the audience, David demonstrates the powerful healing capabilities of the redemptive metaphor.
Pins & Needles: a Quadrant II case study
Comments and transcription by Rob McGavock.
A 39-year old woman client presented in therapy with excessive feelings of guilt. This intervention from David Grove's early work switches quite rapidly from metaphor, memory and childwithin. It illustrates how to map the changing locus of attention; how to make sure all the information is woven back into the narrative, crossed over and transformed; and how to work with 'a nested childwithin'.
