Women who face unplanned pregnancies may experience a wide range of emotions and go through deep crises when they learn they are pregnant. In this workshop, the presenter will describe how brief Ericksonian interventions can help them explore possibilities and cope with their crises during unplanned pregnancy. Examples of quick interventions and conversational trance will be given as well. There will be references to the importance of hope and exercises for coming to terms with previous experience.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Demonstrate how Ericksonian psychotherapy can be used during the crisis of an unplanned pregnancy.
  2. Describe ways to help women who go through unexpected pregnancies explore alternatives and come to terms with previous decisions and experiences.
