How does one master the practice of psychotherapy? Should training emphasize theory, technique, or research? What about the personal growth of the clinician? We will identify seven essential "postures" through a series of graduated, Psychoaerobics exercises. Attendees will participate in growth games and group hypnosis to explore the merging of discipline and spontaneity that occurs in the most artful and effective clinical work. The program focuses on refining the therapist's lenses (perception), muscles(therapeutic power), heart(compassion), and hat (social role).

Educational Objectives:

  1. List three therapist postures that were especially well-developed in Erickson.
  2. Given a case, describe how to use a Psychoaerobic exercise.
