This presentation will demonstrate the utilization of the Ericksonian position on change within the framework of Redecision Transactional Analysis. Permission, co-creating a unique response, develop-mental meaning of symptoms, and creating new responses to the environment will be illustrate using volunteers attending the program.
Mary Goulding (1995) demonstrates with three volunteer clients. The first is disturbed because his mother did not spend much time with him during childhood. Next Dave is concerned about his distant relationship with his son. The third, Diane describes problems with her mother who is now a widow and overly critical. Goulding explains her work.
Memories may be treated as one-act dramas, dialogues or dreams, as volunteers use them, incorporate them in new ways and let them return to the past. Demonstration, with audience volunteers, of a single childhood memory to make changes in their current lives will illustrate Redecision Therapy.
