Milton H. Erickson once said that the task of therapists "is that of altering, not abolishing" symptoms. this short course will put this statement in theoretical context, explaining why the attempt to negate a problem ends up entrenching it. using case examples, the presenter will illustrate how to use the logic and practice of hypnosis to help clients alter their relationship with their symptoms and to invite therapeutic transformations.
