This workshop will use PowerPoint images, research, theories, examples and experiential exercises to demonstrate how therapeutically playful interaction with others may create lasting solutions by producing spiritually-uplifting catharsis and creatively explorative trance states capable of replacing sensations of helplessness with sensations of empowerment, enhancing sensations of meaningful relatedness, encouraging immune system functioning and possibly serving to “wake up” otherwise dormant genetic functioning and activate brain plasticity.

Educational Objectives:

  1. List three therapeutic benefits of playfully interacting with others.
  2. List three processes commonly occurring during therapeutically playful interactions that are also highly associated with hypnotic trance.
