The aim of this short course is to present the therapeutic work developed with children affected by learning difficulties. A cartoon video created to make children aware of their own learning processes will be presented. As the majority of learning difficulty cases are a clear emotional component, some very effective Ericksonian resources will be exemplified with several practical cases.
Consciousness can be defined as increased awareness. Simply put it is, “seeing a bigger picture.” The more you understand yourself, the easier it is to understand other. AN individual’s consciousness is the “x” factor in therapeutic encounters. The short course with lecture and case discussions is useful to all skill levels. Non-pathological understandings and co-created solution for anxiety, depression, and PTSD are included in case discussions.
This presentation will demonstrate the utilization of the Ericksonian position on change within the framework of Redecision Transactional Analysis. Permission, co-creating a unique response, develop-mental meaning of symptoms, and creating new responses to the environment will be illustrate using volunteers attending the program.
This workshop includes Systemic Family Constellation therapy. Redefined by Bert Hellinger and others, it has gained acceptance in Europe as a groundbreaking advancement in brief form therapy. The process explores how transgenerational traumas remain active. In a single session, the imaginal family system is transformed. The burden of memory becomes an enduring source of strength and healing.
When women face unexpected pregnancies, they may experience a variety of feelings. Ericksonian techniques can help them consider alternatives. Short crises interventions such as future rehearsal and utilization will also be discussed as Ericksonian tools to be used during single session therapy. Participants will be able to discuss different alternatives such as adoption and ways to help keep their baby will be promoted. Age regression for coping with post-abortion syndrome will be described.
This is a clinical presentation of a five step model for tailoring hypnotherapy interventions in test anxiety cases utilizing the client’s spontaneous trance phenomena, allowing the clinician’s ability to utilize and maximize the client’s internal resources based on his/her total life experience. Clinical cases will be presented of this hands-on approach of Erickson’s utilization philosophy.
The utilization of body work and improvisational theater can be employed for different therapeutic purposes. In a therapy group with sexually abused survivors, it is a useful tool in the tradition of Ericksonian therapy. Since sensory body work and improvisational theater elements are excellent tools to absorb the patients’ attention in an equally structured and playful way, they become actors and creators of their new body experience. This is an experiential workshop.
Insight usually offers little help to clients willing to make changes in their lives or in their professional careers; being able to explore the experience of solving a dilemma is needed. This short course will explore effective therapeutic interventions to assist clients in breaking out the frustration circle and helping them bring about creative and adaptive choices by means of Ericksonian hypnosis and dyadic psychodramatic techniques like therapist sculpting and role reversal.
This experiential workshop will introduce the principles of classical psychodrama as a method of inducing trance. Sociometry (the measurement of relationships and choices) will be demonstrated as a way to warm-up clients to work and doubling and role reversal will be learned as techniques for deepening conscious and unconscious awareness.
The language a therapist uses to conceptualize and treat a problem determines whether or not that problem can be resolved effectively. This workshop introduces a new model, child-focused family therapy, which is a respectful and effective technique for treating severe problems of children. This method includes a precisely worded opening question, a strategic dialogue with parents and children, Erickson’s principle of utilization, and the use of metaphor to open up solutions.
