Hypnosis is commonly thought of as a tool to enhance the therapy. It also can be used as a "lens." The phenomenology of hypnosis can help us to understand an essential aspect of the trance state, the symptom state, the solution state and the therapist's state, thereby providing new options for treatment.
Ericksonian psychotherapists understand the importance of stories, symbols, and the use of sacred objects in their healing work. We use them to create strategic interventions that help patients move beyond their limitations. In this workshop we will learn how to incorporate all of these elements in the creation of healing ceremonies.
In this workshop, the presenters will offer a dual vision of the axis of the impressive growth of the Centro Ericksoniano de Mexico and its multiple achievements and the role of the founding director as the leader and the consultant as the mirror. Participants will experience and practice two exercises on the art of collaboration and sharing.
The biggest obstacle to the further development of a therapist's skills is arrogance and pride; a heavy burden and one of the seven deadly sins. Self-importance or "ego" actually results from uncertainty and doubt about the self. Learn how to heal this personal incongruence, become more effective and rejoin humanity.
This workshop leads participants in exercises which will unravel the cognitive-emotional mechanism of self-sabotage. The focus is aimed at strengthening participants' automatic associations to resources even in times of low motivation and self-imposed excuses to avoid success.
In naturalistic hypnosis, the therapist's resources are essential for effective therapy. The way in which the therapist establishes rapport, using minimal cues, generally induces deeper, more durable changes than complex and sophisticated techniques. The therapist's emotions and isomorphic behaviors provide tools for accessing immediate diagnosis and therapeutic change.
How do we take care of ourselves as therapists? That question is at the center-point of this experiential workshop. Participants will be provided with five pathways for how they can reconnect to the magic in their own lives: 1) Renewal from the Roots Up; 2) Lessons Learned from the Natural World; 3) Restoring the Breath of Life; 4) Rituals for Re- membering; 5) Giveaway: Sharing the Vision.
