The author explores the process of reintegration in suicide survivors through the use of metaphor & poetry. She challenges caregivers to use their special skills & ego strengths to facilitate this process, suggesting that metaphor & poetry enable therapists to reach deeper levels of heart & mind & to address powerful emotions & capacities in a way that goes beyond mere understanding. 16 refs.
