OCD is a rather chronic illness affecting about 2.5% of adults. Its diagnosis is perceived as a demanding and challenging one. Trance phenomena can be described as natural behavioral manifestations of the trance state. They can be observed in individuals as well as in family communication patterns. In OCD families, one of the most powerful and widely present trance phenomena are the posthypnotic suggestions. They are invisible, deeply hidden, mighty and long lasting.

In this workshop, systemic ideas increasing effectiveness of therapy will be stressed. Attendees will learn how to increase therapeutic sensitivity to observe, diagnose, understand and therapeutically remodel these phenomena.

  2. Describe the significance of posthypnotic suggestions in OCD treatment.
  3. List 3 hypnotic strategies of remodeling family posthypnotic suggestions in a therapeutic way.
