The single reason most people don’t recover from pain is related to unresolved trauma. This workshop will present efficient, effective ways to develop cooperative partnership with somatic experience to create lasting comfort, balance in the nervous system, and healing of past trauma. Techniques are drawn from , neuroscience, Somatic Experiencing,™ Ericksonian principles, mindfulness, and Energy Psychology to provide a cohesive, multi-modal approach.
This workshop will address the rapid treatment of trauma by utilizing both Mindfulness practice and Ericksonian orientation’s that understand the importance of the symptom as a pathway to inner healing. We will review the clinical skills of tracking, pacing and utilization of the symptom for accessing the un-conscious and inner resources with mindfulness and trance. The workshop will highlight Milton Erickson’s use of storytelling, metaphor and rapid trance induction as well as the use of mindfulness practice for framing, reframing and de-framing for the immediate reorganization of transforming somatic-affective experience into new healing rhythms in the body.
With the neuro-healing power of metaphor, creativity and play at its center, this experiential training presents StoryPlay® ; an Ericksonian, resiliency-based, indirective process that interweaves cultural diversity and natural healing abilities, to effect transformational change for children and adolescents who have experienced trauma and adversity.
Clinical case demonstrates an integrative approach of treating deep trauma. DTMR approximates east and west, old and new traditions. Utilizes concepts from occidental psychotherapy, transpersonal influ-ences and some about Kardecism, Buddhism and Xamanism. Through a deep trance, active, eclectic DTMR responds as a tool for patients with PTSD and dissociation.
Multilevel communication was important to Erickson. In this demonstration we will use “energetic communication”. Energy Psychology (EP) approaches will be integrated within an Ericksonian framework to treat a traumatic event; first focusing on neutralizing the negative affect of the trauma with EP and then increasing positive resources and connections with Ericksonian Hypnosis.
Eugene Gendlin (2000) demonstrates with two volunteers. The first is guided through feelings of tension in her shoulders and shakiness in her stomach. Gendlin conducts a second demonstration. The next volunteer presents the trauma of a hysterectomy due to cancer. Gendlin concludes with an explanation of his method.
