BT10 Workshop 19 - Therapeutic Yoga: A New Brief Creative Psychotherapy - Kathryn Rossi, PhD
This workshop is an introductory presentation of a new narrative approach to therapeutic yoga that can be used by everyone in everyday life. We build a neuroscience bridge between the Cartesian mind-body gap with positive therapeutic narratives that accompany classical yoga movements and the four stage creative process for resolving our ongoing life issues.
BT10 Workshop 20 - Hypnosis and Strategic Psychotherapy - Michael D. Yapko, PhD
Why did therapy legends Milton Erickson and Jay Haley routinely incorporate hypnosis into their creative strategies of psychotherapy? Because it works! Too many therapists think of hypnosis as distinct from what they do, yet are forever striving to immerse people in new experiences and perceptions - key reasons for employing hypnosis. In this workshop, we will explore how hypnosis can be strategically applied in therapy.
BT10 Workshop 38 - What Makes Us Human? The New Neuroscience of Therapeutic Hypnosis & Psychotherapy - Ernest Rossi, PhD
Live demonstrations of “The Creative Psychosocial Genomic Healing Experience,” our new, easy-to-learn 20 minute protocol for facilitating the ideo-plastic faculty of therapeutic hypnosis & brief psychotherapy. Why bust your chops trying to make sense of the old, out-of-date Stanford and Harvard Hypnotic Susceptibility Scales that never were appropriate for optimizing “What makes us human?”
BT10 Workshop 42 - Single-Session Psychotherapy: Enhancing One-Meeting Potentials - Michael Hoyt, PhD
Many therapies involve brief lengths of treatment. A structure will be presented for organizing the tasks and skills involved in different phases (pre, early, middle, late, and follow-through) of therapy. Numerous case examples, including video, will illustrate brief therapy techniques both in initial sessions and in the course of longer treatments.
BT10 Workshop 49 - Advances Techniques of Psychotherapy: Making the Moment Visually Alive - Jeffrey Zeig, PhD
Experiential methods enliven therapy through dynamic experiences that promote dynamic realizations. We will explore methods that make therapy a visual art, recognizing the visual realizations are neurologically encoded more robustly than words, hence more easily accessed when needed. We will explore the use of gestures, objects, and even sounds to empower change. We will learn the latest advances in therapist sculpting. Lecture, demonstration, and small group exercises will be used.
The current model of delivering psychotherapy services – one fee for one session—may not sustain us as we move further into the 21st century. One answer is a “multiple streams of therapy income” business - to create passive income for therapists. This workshop will discuss the steps to creating your first information product.
Successful brief psychotherapeutic work with gay men includes the use of clinical hypnoses as well as an accepting compassionate stance of the psychotherapist. Ego state work and positive self-representations create healing from years of internalized sham. Specific psychosocial issues for game men, core issues common in the gay male community, customized hypnosis scripts, and effective short-term treatment strategies will be discussed.
Psychotherapy is a symbolic drama of change, the imperative of which is: “by living this experience you will be different.”
