Blast from the Past

An email in my inbox prompted this search for my 1999 publication in the Asia Pacific Journal of Social Work and Development. It has been over 20 years and this topic seems even more relevant today. I have included my abstract of the article above.

Re-reading this article, I can not help but reflect on George Lakoff’s writings regarding metaphors and frames. I highly encourage reading his books and watch his youtube recordings.
