Milton H. Erickson, MD, understood that “the conscious (thinking) mind doesn’t do much of anything of much significance…while the unconscious mind is an infinite storehouse of dreams, potentials, and solutions…” This workshop will teach a brief, solution focused, strategic, and hypnotic approach to anxiety related disorders. Intellectualizing, analyzing, self-criticizing, WHY-ing and WHAT-IF-ing clients will be targeted as participants learn to employ Ericksonian interventions including solution-focused questions, strategic task assignments, and formal/conversational hypnosis via live demonstration, experiential exercise, and case studies.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe how the symptomology of anxiety can be utilized to access the healing energy of the unconscious mind.
  2. Describe how to create brief, Ericksonian, lasting solutions in the treatment of anxiety related disorders.
