This presentation is a brief therapy approach for negative, self-defeating beliefs, designed to assist participants to recognize more of their own strengths. Based partly on Erickson's style of dealing with negative beliefs, this presentation is very respectful and teaches indirect and direct methods. since many of these types of beliefs have a secret that keeps them in place and "the secret" may be none of our business, this approach build this in to be more effective.
