Metaphors of Movement: Boundary Violations.
The Metaphors of Movement metaphor elicitation structure provides a platform for peculiar behaviour that I call “Boundary Violations.” On the surface, a Boundary Violation may appear to be a random event but is actually a highly specific, patterned and predictable behaviour. It arises when right hemispheric, subconscious and metaphoric information is rejected by the more logical conscious left hemisphere. This act of rejection reflects normal conscious processes enabling the problem situation to remain unresolved and unexplored consciously. The MoM platform permits this behaviour to be uncovered, observed and explored.
Analysis of MoM client sessions demonstrates that challenging of boundary violations significantly improves therapeutic outcome.
