This workshop offers a practical step-by-step approach to overcoming a multitude of the addictive disorders. The first hour presents the foundation of this comprehensive treatment which is based on learning the principles of cognitive and behavioral therapy, and the ideas of Milton Erickson and Michael Yapko. Hypnosis is the cornerstone of this treatment because “addicts” love things that help them escape their everyday reality. Hypnosis is used to target multidimensional small changes in your patient which eventually progresses into a new and lasting lifestyle. The second hour presents a live clinical demonstration of an assessment of a person, their addictive problem and its hypnotic treatment.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe the multidimensional model of addictions.
  2. Given a patient, propose an Ericksonian hypnotic protocol.
