“The Hero’s Journey as a Developmental Metaphor in Counseling”
by GERARD LAWSON

“It has been argued that the goal of counseling is development. Through the use of J. Campbell’s (1949) treatment of the hero’s journey as a conceptual metaphor, this article describes development as a journey and illustrates how the counselor’s understanding of the journey can assist the client’s development.”
