What makes it possible for someone to get so absorbed in subjective experience that they experience a significant reduction or even elimination of pain? How does encouraging someone to view their hurtful thoughts “as if clouds in the sky floating away from you” make it easier to dramatically reduce emotional reactivity to those thoughts?
En la primera parte de Sembrando un tema - Un seminario de enseñanza con Milton Erickson, serás testigo de cómo Erickson planta una semilla sin problemas, conecta los puntos, desarrolla un tema y cierra el ciclo en un período de clase. Aprenderá cómo Erickson condujo la disociación a través del tempo, el contenido y el tono de sus palabras.
A primary feature of hypnosis is dissociation, defined as the breaking of global experiences into their component parts. Dissociation gives rise to some of the most fascinating practical aspects of hypnosis in clinical contexts, such as pain management and the revivification of memories. Dissociation also paves the way for suggested responses to arise seemingly spontaneously, an enormously advantageous phenomenon called automaticity. In this workshop, we will consider the therapeutic roles of dissociation and automaticity and conduct an exercise in generating an “automatic” response.
Dissociation is a critical element in hypnosis. But its converse, association, is highly useful in generating individualized hypnotic therapy. This demonstration will illustrate the importance of utilizing associations of both the subject and the hypnotist.
In this demonstration I will present how to introduce to the client the concept of Universal Wisdom and how to utilize it during the session. We are going to work with the minimum information about the problem because we are going to work with what I call Universal Topics that underly the problem. The problem will be treated with several different mini trances that trigger processes that will continue in the hands of Universal Wisdom.
Dissociation can be described as the failure to integrate information and self-attributions that should ordinarily be integrated, and as alterations of consciousness characterized by a sense of detachment from the self and/or the environment. The strong connection between Hypnosis and Dissociation is known since the time of Pierre Janet's pioneer work. Dissociative hypnotic intervention demonstrated to be very useful in treating pain, anxiety disorders and many other conditions.
This presentation will review the concept of dissociation and its evolution in modern Psychology and its relationship with hypnotic process, when it is described as a mind state of focused attention. We will explore the idea of dissociation between the conscious and unconscious mind during hypnosis and how it can lead to therapeutic success. Some practical exercises and demonstrations to provoke dissociate states.
Dissociative hypnotic intervention demonstrated to be very useful in treating pain, anxiety disorders and many other conditions. But hypnosis can as well reactivate the natural mind processes, contributing to reconnect different parts (distinct modes of information processing) into a functional and unified self, particularly after traumatic experiences. Rapport, the special relationship that produces intense interpersonal links and connections, as well as profound disconnections with non-hypnotic reality, can be considered a crucial factor of brief therapeutic approach to dissociative conditions and trauma. How to use rapport as well as other new specific therapeutic interventions to reestablish the natural integrative links in a dissociative mind and relationship will be outlined in this presentation.
This workshop will look at mental ill health through the lens of dissociation. Any problem can be seen as having an element of dissociation, and so learning to recognize the dissociative aspects that produce suffering and working to assist the client gain control of this aspect of their experience will simply and briefly reduce suffering and promote healing. Demonstration and practice will move this idea from a useful concept to a lived experience that can then become a practical tool.
Dissociation is the bedrock of hypnosis. It is important for clinicians to consider the many ways in which dissociation can be utilized in every session. This demonstration will illustrate various direct and indirect methods that incorporate dissociation in service of the goal for treatment.
