Self-Image Thinking (SIT) is one of the cognitive—experiential interventions that every therapist will find useful for almost every client. The 'Tools of Intention' are best seen as techniques of positive-oriented psychotherapy. They can be practiced in therapy with or without hypnosis. These tools are protocols taken from an analysis of how minds already function but with an important twist: The protocols rely upon the cognitive experiential mechanisms can be used in harmony with both conscious and unconscious thoughts and feelings. In addition to SIT, this workshop will teach 3 other interventions that actually make therapeutic decisions work—explicitly and experientially.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Demonstrate the protocol and indications for Chunking Logic and Vivid Symbolic Imagery.
  2. Demonstrate the Self-Image Thinking protocol.
  3. Demonstrate the protocol and indications for Emanate Imagery and the Heart-Joy protocol.
