Like much that is deeply imbedded and emergent in our psyches, the mastery of Milton Erickson often defies a simple explanation. Words may be descriptive but fall short of unpacking the exquisite intricacy of his work. With currents as deep as this it has taken years for Jeff Zeig, one of Erickson’s students, to come up with the potent phrase “Limbic Communication” to describe that crucial element that underpins the art and artistry of Erickson and all impactful experiential therapy.

This seminar will introduce you to the concept of limbic communication, explore why it is central to the work of Ericksonian Hypnosis and offer you a frame work for developing your skills in this area. Through lecture and accompanying experiential exercises you will learn how to talk to your clients limbic brain rather than their neocortex and in so doing improve outcomes and facilitate transformation.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Demonstrate an understanding of the difference between cortical and limbic communication.
  2. Given a clinical case, suggest 2 different ways of communicating with that client’s limbic system.
