Demo 1 - Exploration of Hypnotic Phenomena - Stanislav Kratochvil, Ph.D.
Testing individual hypnotic susceptibility and suggestions of some phenomena of deep hypnosis will be demonstrated in the frame of reference of traditional hypnosis to be compared with the experience of Ericksonian hypnotists and subjects. The technique offered will be more directive and explicit than the Ericksonian tailored approaches and metaphors.
Demo 2 - Hypnosis for the Client Who Is Unable to Go Into Trance - Dan Short, Ph.D.
In years past, the term "resistant" has been applied to any client who did not provide a satisfactory response to hypnotic induction. This label only adds further weight to the burden of pathology which has caused the client to seek help. A more productive strategy is to develop an understanding of the ambivalence that prevents the client from accessing the help they are seeking.
