Length: 1 hour 30 minutes

Joanne Greenberg, DHL

The human mind is not linear and logical but associative and metaphoric.  Dreams, visions and hallucinations are metaphors.  The presenter believes that mental illness is a disruption in the system of metaphors by which we determine reality and construct meaning.  When this system breaks down, new metaphors are formulated or created to make meaning.  As a storyteller, she deals with metaphor all the time.  She illustrates her talk with such a story.
