Therapeutic rapport is prerequisite not only to hypnosis but also to most forms of intervention. In this workshop, participants will learn strategies not commonly taught, such as how to develop a sincere interest in the well-being of clients whom you initially dislike, how to recognize and respond to the strength/fragility of the client's ego and when to use confrontation as a method of building trust and mutual respect.


Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe the history and research related to rapport and Erickson's method of increasing rapport.
  2. To describe the skills necessary to create therapeutic relations with a variety of individuals.
