Sample text

We will resort to two metaphors we usually utilize when applying the therapeutic procedure: the what-are-youdoing and six-month-old-baby metaphors. The first metaphor deals with a 3-year-old child carrying some toys, his mother, and his mother's friend walking in single file. Suddenly, the little boy runs into something and noisily falls. He does not cry. On hearing the noise, the mother and the mother's friend turn around. The exaggeratedly scared and bodily frightened mother shouts: What's up?

In fact, this principle is applicable to any learning independently of the context (academic learning, behavioral dysfunction), so both PASS planning training intervention and behavioral dysfunction intervention must take into account it. We will see how the metaphor as an excellent tool of empathic communication runs the bridge between concrete and abstract ideas. Procedural rules that are not understood are sometimes only partially remembered or remembered incorrectly because the understanding rationale is lacking.

To elaborate the answer, the thinking brain resorts to previous accumulated - memorized knowledge. In this case, for instance, "a little boy who falls may be injured and subsequently cry". In other words, the thinking brain does not do anything that compromises the overreacting behavior triggered by the brain processing a danger signal. The second metaphor has to do with a 6-month-old infant who is taken to my office by her parents and her grandmother. She is laid on my office table, her grandmother stands near the table, her parents sit down in front of me.
