An ego state may be defined as an organized system of behavior and experience. When one of these states is invested with ego energy, it becomes “the self” in the here and now. Ego states can block resolutions for therapy success because they do not normally become open and observable. Detecting and revealing the ego states that are blocking the therapeutic process is the first step in collaborating with the patient, changing the resistance to resources, evolving the ego states and giving the patients better control of themselves. Therapeutic goals are achieved by using a combination of Ericksonian Hypnosis and Gestalt Techniques.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe how ego states can block the therapeutic process and interfere with achieving therapeutic goals.
  2. Given a patient, show how to use Hypnogestalt techniques can help to integrate ego states to improve skills in finding solutions.
