EP21 Speech 01 - The 7 Steps of Sustainable Therapeutic Change - Stephen Gilligan, PhD
Original Program Date :
Length: 1 hour
This talk identifies the seven core dimensions of an effective, sustainable therapy change: 1. a state of positive well being, 2. a positive resonant goal, 3. resources, 4. welcoming obstacles, 5. fluid "ideas of achievement", 6. commitment to practical action, 7. commitment to daily practices. The practical ways to develop and integrate these complementary dimensions will be highlighted.
Stephen Gilligan Ph.D., is a Psychologist in Encinitas, CA. He was one of the original NLP students at UC Santa Cruz; Milton Erickson and Gregory Bateson were his mentors. After receiving his psychology doctorate from Stanford University, he became one of the premier teachers and practitioners of Ericksonian hypnotherapy. This work unfolded into his original approaches of Self-Relations and Generative Self, and then further (in collaboration with Robert Dilts) into Generative Coaching. These different traditions have all been updated and integrated into the present Generative Change Work, which includes the applications of Generative Coaching, Generative Psychotherapy, Generative Trance, Hero’s Journey, and Systemic Change work.
