IC01 Short Course 13 - Working From the Inside Out - Dick Hatten, PhD
It is said Erickson invented a new theory for each patient. This requires working with the clients'
personal subjective experience (PSE). Imagine assuming that everything a person does makes
perfect sense, i.e. has an internal logic. Inventing a new theory requires "stepping inside" the
PSE to understand it and its logic. In this semi-experiential course, participants will learn
techniques for doing this and for working from the "inside, out" to effect therapeutic change.
IC01 Short Course 14 - Impact Therapy: A Multi-Sensory Approach to Counseling - Ed Jacobs, PhD
Impact therapy is a unique multi-sensory, active approach to counseling that integrates
counseling theories with creative counseling techniques. This approach accesses all the learning
styles of clients by putting both the counselor and client into action. Participants will learn simple,
creative techniques that use props (shields, filters, rubber bands, fuses), chairs, movement and
drawings to facilitate learning and retention.
IC01 Short Course 15 - Moving beyond victimization - Les Blandino, Jr., LPC, LMFT
The Madanes apology process is an active, respectful and humane approach, which helps those
traumatized by such family injustices as violence and incest begin to heal. Workshop participants
will witness how these powerful interventions have been used with actual cases. Examples
include work with the victim, victimizer, parents and other family members.
IC01 Short Course 16 - Advanced Strategic Therapy for Beginners: Therapy in the Language Experience of Human Beings - Donald Miretsky, MEd, CPC
This short course will teach advanced conceptualization and technique by summarizing it in the
language experience of human beings. This means teaching a four-step approach incorporating
everyday language, common sense concepts and humor so beginners as well as experienced
therapists can learn and apply the skills. This approach is demonstrated by case and video
presentation of severely disordered children.
IC01 Short Course 17 - The Oral Tradition: An Ericksonian Framework - John Parke, PsyD
This short course will introduce participants to a new framework for Ericksonian therapy drawn
from studies of oral tradition cultures. Members of oral cultures communicate in a style that is
similar to the way Milton H. Erickson performed psychotherapy. This course will introduce
participants to the patterns and habits of oral traditional communication and draw parallels to
Ericksonian work. The workshop includes a storytelling exercise.
IC01 Short Course 18 - The Client's Inner Guide as Mentor and Co-Therapist - Noelle Poncelet, PhD
Life-threatening addictions and diseases often open clients to welcome an inner guide in their
lives. Clinical cases reveal this guide as companion, parent, mentor and co-therapist and
illustrates the impact of their reparative relationship on clients' healing and recovery. Addressed
in this course are induction, anchoring and post-hypnotic methods. A hypnotic encounter/
reunion with such a guide will be demonstrated.
IC01 Short Course 19 - Adolescent Groups: The Challenge of Enchanting and Unbalancing - Sian Segal, PhD
This workshop describes a framework for working with groups of adolescents to elicit their
untapped competencies by providing a safe context for experimenting with new ways of relating
to themselves and others.
IC01 Short Course 20 - The Ericksonian Hypnotherapeutic Relationship and Affect Regulation - Sietze Van Der Heide, PsyD
The exchange of emotions in the clinical relationship is an essential aspect of the therapeutic
process. Since affect is exchanged between the client and therapist at the conscious and
unconscious level, Ericksonian techniques are well suited to facilitating the affective change
process. This workshop will integrate contemporary models of affect regulation with
Ericksonian hypnotherapy. The emphasis will be on applied techniques aimed at increasing the
client's tolerance and capacity for utilization of affect.
IC01 Short Course 21 - The Ericksonian Molecule: Past, Present and Future - James Rini, EdD
The Erickson molecule represents Erickson's underlying method of producing therapeutic
change. This molecule is important because it depicts the process Erickson used to effectively
access unconscious resources, bypass conscious resistance and link reorganized cognitive
processes to future contingencies. Today's high tech/information rich culture is prompting the
need for quicker, more effective methods of helping those in need.
IC01 Short Course 22 - Dorothy Meets the Wizard: An Allegory for a Psychodynamic Approach - Ana Rita Almeida, MSc, Agostino Almeida, MA and Peter Hawkins, PhD
The Wizard of Oz is a story that is part of almost everyone's childhood. This tale can be seen as
a metaphor for a psychodynamic approach. To illustrate this, a live demonstration will be used.
In it we will address some psychodynamic concepts within a hypnotic situation. To conclude,
some time will be devoted to discuss the issues raised.
