Description

Description:

Many strategic therapists eschew theory and sacrifice grounding. Missing theory resides in basic sciences. Hypnosis data reveal consciousness and volition as paradoxes, resolvable through evolutionary biology. Human's minds evolved as shared self-deceptions. Theory can predict transference, paradox, game antitheses, Erickson's "common sense psychology," but it constrains their optimum utilization.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe how paradoxes of hypnosis research are resolved by evolutionary biology.
  2. To describe how theory predicts therapeutic phenomena and their optimum utilization.
