This course offers a practical step-by-step approach to overcoming vicious circles and addictions. The foundation of this comprehensive treatment is based on learning research and Ericksonian ideas. For example, what is learned can be unlearned and helping your patient target small changes eventually progresses into lasting change. An addiction effects all the areas of a patient's life; mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, behavioral and social. Six Ericksonian hypnotic protocols are given to help you help your patient create changes in these six areas.
