This workshop presents an integrative model for generative psychotherapy. The first part details how helpful therapeutic conversations traverse three core axes: (1) a time-line in which each significant life experience contributes towards a positive future; (2) a systemic dimension that integrates different “identity parts”; and (3) a hypnotic dimension that flows between conscious and unconscious processes.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Show three methods for developing therapeutic change.
  2. Describe three techniques for developing a therapeutic relationship.

Stephen Gilligan Ph.D., is a Psychologist in Encinitas, CA. He was one of the original NLP students at UC Santa Cruz; Milton Erickson and Gregory Bateson were his mentors. After receiving his psychology doctorate from Stanford University, he became one of the premier teachers and practitioners of Ericksonian hypnotherapy.

These different traditions have all been updated and integrated into the present Generative Change Work, which includes the applications of Generative Coaching, Generative Psychotherapy, Generative Trance, Hero’s Journey, and Systemic Change work.
