Ericksonian Hypnosis: Advanced Techniques for Beginners
August 5-9, 2019
Hypnosis is the fundamental paradigm for an experiential approach—hypnosis is the source from which psychotherapy originated. What is hypnosis? What is the Ericksonian difference? How can I help patients elicit a constructive trance (or therapeutic) experience? How can I more powerfully present ideas and concepts? How can I take experiential methods from hypnosis and apply them to improve my practice without the necessity of formal trance? This workshop answers these questions and more.
You will discover how to elicit a trance state and learn its essential elements from an Ericksonian perspective. You will enhance responsiveness and compliance through the application of novel assessment criteria based on the client’s values. Powerful hypnotic language forms can be tailored so that a trance (and therapy) is developed in the most appropriate and efficient way for each patient. You will see demonstration inductions and work in small groups. Videotapes of Milton Erickson at work will be shown and discussed. This course is for practitioners from all schools of therapy and all levels of practice.
