During the first hour of this workshop the specific treatment ideas targeting Eating Disorders will be presented. Also, the workshop will delineate how an eating disorder is an addiction and present the underlying issues, which need to be addressed because of an addiction’s multi-dimensional infiltration. The remaining hour will be a demonstration of Ericksonian Hypnosis on a volunteer who wants to lose or gain any amount of weight. You will see: a Ericksonian diagnostic interview which focuses on the present where the solutions can be found; an Ericksonian induction using conscious/unconscious dissociation; a Ericksonian suggestion phase tailored to fit the patient; and a reorientation out of trance. There will be some time for questions and discussion.

Educational Objectives:

  1. List three specific treatments for Eating Disorders;
  2. Describe the six dimensions of a person’s life that eating disorders and all addictions infiltrate;
  3. Discuss the Ericksonian approach to a conscious/unconscious induction and a tailored suggestion phase of hypnosis.
