BT18 Clinical Demonstration 04 - Developing Mutual Responsivity: Utilizing Hypnotic Rapport to Develop A Shared Deep Experience in Couple Therapy - Camillo Loriedo, MD, PhD
Original Program Date :
As suggested by Milton Erickson, naturalistic hypnosis seems to be one of the best way of utilizing couple’s resources. Frequently couples fail in reaching a deep mutual exchange and complain of being unable to satisfy their needs for intimacy. Hypnotic experience seems to produce by itself a deep contact that rarely develops in their habitual patterns. Specific couple’s responses to hypnotic induction that can be utilized to produce contact and intimacy will be demonstrated. In some other cases couples are caught by conflicts they are unable to solve. A couples hypnotherapist can extend to both couple members rapport, and succeed in obtaining a special relationship that produces more syntonic and attuned behaviors, in which conflict intensity decreases and a greater ability to listen to each other and negotiate conflicts develops.
- List five hypnotic couple’s responses that can help to developing contact and intimacy.
- Demonstrate understanding of how to extend rapport to the couple and to reduce conflicts intensity .
