Known as The Wizard of the Desert, Dr. Milton Erickson is revered for his therapeutic genius, his brilliance as a hypnotist, and his encouragement for therapists to utilize all available resources, both their own and the clients’. One of those resources described by Dr. Erickson as a level of perception not necessarily conscious is what typically we call intuition.
In this didactic and experiential workshop we will examine the therapeutic utilization of intuition from the perspective of three clinical phenomena of an Ericksonian approach.
Participants will be introduced to The ACE Schema, an innovative 3-step model that can guide the development of the therapist’s archaeopsychic, i.e. intuitive, faculties, provide tools for assisting clients to develop their own intuitive resources, and facilitate the evolution of psychosocial effectiveness into creative dimensions of clinical Wizardry.
