IC19 Fundamentals of Hypnosis 04 - The Ericksonian Approach to Hypnotic Phenomena - Dan Short, PhD
Original Program Date :
Erickson resisted standardized hypnotic protocols because he found that everyone responded to hypnosis uniquely. Rather than seeking to force his preferred hypnotic phenomena, he cultivated whatever came naturally. Fortunately, clinical objectives, such as pain relief, can be achieved using a variety of hypnotic phenomena. This session will identify three broad classes of hypnotic experiencing and provide guidance on how to identify natural predispositions.
- State the central characteristics of hypnotherapy that distinguish it from other forms of mental therapy.
- State the three major types of hypnotic responsiveness, as supported by current research.
- Identify which types of hypnotic phenomena are likely to succeed with a given client.
