Drawing on Erickson's idea of the common everyday trance, we will find an easy and respectful method of inviting anyone into hypnosis. Because hypnosis creates an experience, we can explore ways of assisting any individual to move beyond the possibility of a preferred outcome that brief therapy is so helpful for and allowing them to create a direct and bodily felt experience of that desired outcome.
1. Identify the common everyday trance into experiencing hypnosis.
2. Create an experience of a preferred outcome.
