This book discusses current theories in linguistics andsociolinguistics as they relate to therapeutic situations,including uses of metaphor, slogans, and proverbs. It shows howpeople's empathies or feeling of alienation are displayed by thelanguage they choose to describe or discuss events. Dysfunctions asdifferent as depression, drug and alcohol additions, agoraphobia,schizophrenia and bulimia are examined in terms of the languageused by clients or patients. It is shown that the way people encodelife events influences their self-evaluations, evaluations ofothers, and their general behaviour, so that therapy becomes aprocess of learning to retell one's life story. Every chapter contains either actual narratives from clients ortherapist/client interviews with thorough linguistic andsociolinguistic analyses of these speech activities. The therapistis shown how to listen and what to listen for in the client'sspeech, as well as what kinds of questions to ask.
