504    Includes bibliographical references (p. 169-181) and 
505 0  1. Introduction: The Meaning and Message of Metaphor -- 2.
       Narrative as a Therapeutic Resource: The Creative 
       Influence of Milton Erickson -- 3. Techniques for the 
       Methodological Implementation of Metaphor -- 4. Anthology 
       of Therapeutic Narratives. 
520    Keeping pace with today's interest in, and awareness of, 
       narrative and metaphor in psychotherapy, this new resource
       provides practitioners with an extremely concise overview 
       of Milton Erickson's work; a simple, systematic, seven-
       step approach to employing narrative and metaphor 
       effectively; and an encyclopedic compendium of fables, 
       myths, anecdotes, quotes, fairy tales, and stories to put 
       to immediate use. In Flash of Insight, author Stephen 
       Pearce shows how metaphor works, how it helps clients to 
       establish a sense of cultural identity, and how using 
       narrative with them can be physically and emotionally 
       curative and redemptive - while actually speeding up the 
       therapeutic process. Interdisciplinary in scope and 
       application, the book draws on linguistic, anthropological,
       and psychological currents to emphasize the importance of 
       narrative and metaphor which influence thought and 
       behavior both in the therapeutic setting and in the lives 
       of people.
