BT12 Clinical Demonstration 03 - Generative Trance and Transformation - Stephen Gilligan, PhD

This demonstration will show how problems/symptoms may be viewed as attempts by the creative unconscious to bring transformation and healing, and how the development of a generative trance can allow that transformation to be realized.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe how symptoms can become solutions under conditions of generative trance.
  2. Explain how a generative trance unfolds from the client’s unique processes and idiosyncratic values.

Stephen Gilligan Ph.D., is a Psychologist in Encinitas, CA. He was one of the original NLP students at UC Santa Cruz; Milton Erickson and Gregory Bateson were his mentors. After receiving his psychology doctorate from Stanford University, he became one of the premier teachers and practitioners of Ericksonian hypnotherapy. This work unfolded into his original approaches of Self-Relations and Generative Self, and then further (in collaboration with Robert Dilts) into Generative Coaching. These different traditions have all been updated and integrated into the present Generative Change Work, which includes the applications of Generative Coaching, Generative Psychotherapy, Generative Trance, Hero’s Journey, and Systemic Change work.
