Common Issues in Therapy

Therapists help people with a variety of everyday concerns. Sometimes those concerns relate to the individual, such as anxiety, depression, insomnia, and job related stresses. Often there are concerns surrounding their interpersonal relationships, whether that appears as marriage difficulties, lies and deception, or abuse. The Erickson Foundation offers a number of strategies to deal with diverse issues.

Addiction

Addiction is a state of psychological or physical dependence (or both) on the use of alcohol or other drugs. The term is often used as an equivalent term for substance dependence and sometimes applied to behavioral disorders, such as sexual, Internet, and gambling addictions.

Anxiety

Anxiety is an emotion characterized by apprehension and somatic symptoms of tension in which an individual anticipates impending danger, catastrophe, or misfortune. The body often mobilizes itself to meet the perceived threat: Muscles become tense, breathing is faster, and the heart beats more rapidly. Anxiety may be distinguished from fear both conceptually and physiologically, although the two terms are often used interchangeably. Anxiety is considered a future-oriented, long-acting response broadly focused on a diffuse threat, whereas fear is an appropriate, present-oriented, and short-lived response to a clearly identifiable and specific threat.

Depression

Depression is considered a negative affective state, ranging from unhappiness and discontent to an extreme feeling of sadness, pessimism, and despondency, that interferes with daily life. Various physical, cognitive, and social changes also tend to co-occur, including altered eating or sleeping habits, lack of energy or motivation, difficulty concentrating or making decisions, and withdrawal from social activities. It is symptomatic of a number of mental health disorders.

Trauma

Trauma can mean any disturbing experience that results in significant fear, helplessness, dissociation, confusion, or other disruptive feelings intense enough to have a long-lasting negative effect on a person’s attitudes, behavior, and other aspects of functioning. Traumatic events include those caused by human behavior (e.g., rape, war, industrial accidents) as well as by nature (e.g., earthquakes) and often challenge an individual’s view of the world as a just, safe, and predictable place.

For example, what is learned can be unlearned and helping your patient target small changes eventually progresses into lasting change. An addiction effects all the areas of a patient's life; mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, behavioral and social. Six Ericksonian hypnotic protocols are given to help you help your patient create changes in these six areas.

This presentation poses a brief substance abuse treatment which acknowledges and accommodates the personal needs being addressed by substance use, bypasses perceived resistance and employs the essence of idiosyncratic psychobiological learning to achieve a body-mind gestalt complementary to the client's sobriety. Client self-empowerment and relapse prevention are built into the intervention. This method develops a safe framework for addressing any subsequent mental health themes directly or indirectly related to substance misuse. A particular form of body language known as ideomotor signaling is established in this procedure.

The process also allays anxiety and generalizes to effect management.

This course will teach how to use these six domains to help to ask the right questions that can lead to the break-up of clinical log-jams and increase the lasting effectiveness of the briefer therapies.

Short Description:
There are six core personality adaptations that form the basic building blocks of personality. These are schizoid, paranoid, antisocial, passive-aggressive, obsessive-compulsive and histrionic. Each of these has a specific way (feeling, thinking, or behavior) of making contact with the world, a target area for growth and change, and a trap area where the person has the greatest defenses. By knowing this information, the therapist can quickly establish rapport, target interventions to the area that will produce the greatest change, and avoid getting trapped in the client's defenses. This workshop will look at these six core adaptations, how they develop, and how to work most effectively with each one.

Short Description:
Dreaming is a vital, nightly function of the brain. Disturbing dreams or recurrent nightmares are frequent symptoms of an acute focus on unresolved conflicts and events. Clients can learn to reclaim comforting sleep even before the overt reasons for seeking therapy are directly addressed. The potential of individualized metaphors structured within lucid dreaming empowers clients to "seize" the night." Hypnotic techniques offer an intriguing path that bypasses a client's ingrained fear of "falling to sleep."

This presentation will provide participants with a research-based menu of brief interventions that can be applied in a variety of settings.

Does your client have anyone in their life that can "get them," so that they feel like running away or punching the person out? What if you had the hemispheric integration tool that can change their initial response to that person or even to a situation? When clients remain centered, they will influence and set boundaries that will actually change the dynamics of the relationship. When your client is different the interactions have to evolve.

Thirty-four million people are over 65 and that number will double to sixty-eight million within 25 years. This is a very different population, and therapy for this group must also be different. Therapy for seniors has to be brief and effective as quickly as possible. Many of the older members of our society just don't have the time or willingness to spend months awaiting change. Therapist will be encountering of the sixty-five plus population more often. This workshop will dispel some myths about aging and will present various brief treatment approaches used successfully with senior patients.

Short Description:
With religion as a precedent and large group formation as an instrument, Dr. Polster will show how we may address the everyday, non-pathological needs of people. A complementary offshoot of these life-long groups is the reciprocal benefits it will share with brief therapy, supplying continuity to the brief therapy experience and individual focus to the large group formations.

Short Description:
The anxiety disorders manipulate people by injecting rules into consciousness, then using that set of laws to take over mental territory. The five anxiety disorders (phobias, panic, social anxiety, generalized anxiety and OCD) control people by generating an absolute standard for certainty and comfort. We will look at the common denominators of this game, and isolate its manifestations in each disorder. Then we will explore how the therapist can teach clients to gain ground by engineering their own tactics and strategies, including the second-order change of switching game boards altogether!

Short Description:
Adolescent self-harming behavior is on the rise and one of the most challenging presenting problems therapists will face today in their clinical practice settings. Therapists referred these clients are often intimidated by their cutting and burning behaviors, the DSM IV labels they have been given, and the army of helping professionals involved with them and their families. many of these adolescents have experienced multiple treatment failures, feel emotionally disconnected from their parents, and come from families where there may be difficulties with marital or post-divorce conflicts, invalidating family interactions, gender power imbalance issues, or family secrets. In this hands-on, practice-oriented workshop, participants will learn a collaborative, strengths-based therapy approach that capitalizes on the strengths and resources of the adolescent, family members, concerned peers, adult inspirational others, and involved helpers from larger systems to rapidly co-construct solutions

Ignoring the impact of trauma on the client's family overlooks powerful dynamics that are crucial to treatment outcome.

Participants will learn how to better educate clients about the typical symptoms of trauma, the stages of trauma recovery, how to help family members both soothe and set limits with the traumatized person, and the typical pitfalls families encounter - including the depleting response of "enough already" as a family member tries to heal from a trauma.
