In a 1964/2008 paper MHE documented how "hypnosis was used for the specific purpose of placing the burden of responsibility for therapeutic results upon the patient himself after he reached a definite conclusion that therapy would not help and that a last resort would be a hypnotic 'miracle'.” I will first demonstrate how to gently shift this "burden of responsibility for therapeutic results" in a brief, easy-to-learn group process with the entire audience. Time permitting, anyone who feels they have failed during this group process may volunteer for a therapeutic experience with me in front of the entire audience.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe how to "Shift the Responsibility for Effective Psychotherapy Onto the Client.
  2. List the 4-Stage Creative Cycle for "Shifting the Responsibility for Therapy" Onto the Client.
