Metaphors are everywhere. And they’re powerful.
Multiple studies have proven that they make a difference in how patients think and act. They enhance patient communication. They’re time-saving in their efficiency.
And yet we hardly think about them.
I’ve joined my voice to those who’ve indicated how metaphors can be cultural mismatches.
I’ve also written about how to strengthen the metaphors you’re using.
Now I’m taking it to the next level, and I invite you to join me there.
I’m proud to announce an exclusive new workshop,
A 1-hour on-demand workshop that will help you get the most out of the metaphors you use.
This workshop goes beyond the benefits and challenges of using metaphors. It shows what you can do about them.
In this workshop, you will:
- differentiate between the two parts of a metaphor
- identify the cognitive and affective dimensions of metaphor
- identify and address barriers to understanding
- evaluate your metaphor in use (including how to show others that what you’re doing works)
The result is an intense 1 hour experience where you break down your metaphor, find out how it works, and develop a winning process that will help you reach any patient. It’s loaded with research – from across specializations. Examples guide you through the process of breaking down and improving your own metaphors. It’s a workshop!
It’s also in bite-sized pieces. 5 separate video lessons, all around the 10-12 minute mark, that you can take when it’s convenient for you. Right here on this site. And you can watch from any device.
This workshop is for you, because you’re reading this. Just to be clear, it’s for
- providers across allied health professions
- community health workers
- public health practitioners
I don’t mess around. It’s video, I narrate it, there’s research galore. I’m proud of it because I know it will change the way you think about metaphors.
It is new, and I promise you have not seen anything like it.
Because it is new, and I love feedback, I am offering it at a special low price for a short time. Because I want you to try it and tell me what you thought.
