This course will address the rapid treatment of trauma by utilizing both Mindfulness practice and Ericksonian orientation. The course will highlight Milton Erickson’s use of storytelling, metaphor and rapid trance induction as well as the use of mindfulness practice for framing, re-framing and de-framing the immediate reorganization of transforming somatic-affective experience into new healing rhythms in the body. These methods allow the body to open healthier pathways for new somatic recoveries. We will also emphasize the use of naturalistic hypnotic trance, guided mindfulness practice, and healing metaphors for generating new therapeutic skills in mindbody healing therapies.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Apply two styles of trance for rapid induction: a) Naturalistic and b) Guided Mindfulness- Outcome focused.
  2. Utilize new clinical skills for tracking, pacing and reframing trauma into new pathways for healing and resolution.
  3. Study creative metaphors for moving from symptom to solution.
  4. Apply the principle of Mindstrength to rapidly and quickly overcome trauma and shift the mind-body process.
