Ericksonian hypnotherapy and the Self-Relations approach are experiential methods of change. In combination they can be synergistic. Psychotherapy is best when clients have a first-hand experience of an alive therapeutic process. Such dynamic empowering experiences pave the way for dynamic understandings. Drs. Gilligan and Zeig will engage with each other and the participants to examine commonalities and differences in their work.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe the ten therapeutic patterns of Ericksonian influence communication.
  2. Demonstrate the relationship between interviewing for personal resources and integrating them into a hypnosis session.
  3. List and describe the stages of hypnotic interaction.
  4. Describe and demonstrate the role of post-hypnotic suggestions in generalizing individual therapy session gains.
  5. Compare and contrast elements of an Ericksonian induction with traditional inductions.
  6. Describe the Utilization Method.

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. This work unfolded into his original approaches of Self-Relations and Generative Self, and then further (in collaboration with Robert Dilts) into Generative Coaching. 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.
