Gestalt therapy and Ericksonian hypnotherapy are experiential methods of change. In combination they can be synergistic. Psychotherapy is best when clients have first-hand experience of an alive therapeutic process. Such dynamic empowering experiences pave the way for dynamic understandings. Drs. Polster and Zeig will engage with each other and participants to examine commonalities and differences in their work in this engaging all-day workshop.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe the synergy between Gestalt Therapy and Ericksonian Hypnotherapy.
  2. List at least two commonalities and two differences between Gestalt Therapy and Ericksonian Hypnotherapy.
