EP17 Clinical Demonstration 03 - Hypnosis as a Context of Empowerment - Michael Yapko, PhD
Hypnosis is a vehicle for delivering ideas and/or promoting meaningful experiential learning. Hypnosis itself isn't what cures people. Rather, it's what happens during hypnosis that can make a positive difference, especially when applied to empower people to discover and use their innate resources. In this demonstration, the merits of hypnosis as a tool of therapeutic empowerment will be highlighted.
- Demonstrate the merits of hypnosis as a vehicle of associating people to their own innate resources.
- Assess the qualities of hypnotic interaction that foster a greater sense of personal self-efficacy.
