Auf einer day trip erforscht guy das Unbekannte, auch hier ist die Analogie leicht zu ziehen. Die Metapher ist nicht nur ein sehr interessanter und unterhaltsamer Bestandteil unserer Sprache, sondern auch unscheinbarer, unbewusster und fester darin verankert, als guy zunächst oberflächlich annimmt. Gerade diese Möglichkeit des unbewussten Umgangs mit Metaphern und deren impliziten Eigenschaften weisen auf eine hervorragende Eignung und viele Verwendungsmöglichkeiten innerhalb von Psychotherapien hin.Neben der systemischen Familientherapie als eigenständiger Disziplin werden in Therapieformen wie z. B. der familientherapeutischen Psychoanalyse bzw. psychoanalytischen Familientherapie, der Hypnosetherapie und den innovativen Psychotherapien (hier: Neuro-linguistisches Programmieren) Familien therapiert. Hier wird bereits aktiv mit der Metapher als kommunikatives Werkzeug gearbeitet.Auf einige ausgewählte Autoren, die in diesem Rahmen über den therapeutischen Gebrauch der Metapher publiziert haben, möchte ich mich näher konzentrieren und erarbeiten, wo, wie, warum, als used to be und mit welchem Effekt die Metapher in psychotherapeutischen Gesprächen und nonverbalen, kommunikativen Interaktionen zwischen Therapeuten und Patienten auftaucht.
