This workshop will examine some of the most serious allegations raised against hypnosis, and some of the most controversial questions about it. In particular, we will discuss the following five topics: 1. Hypnosis and Death; 2. Hypnosis and Seduction; 3. Hypnosis and the Commission of Antisocial Acts; 4. Hypnosis and the Implantation of False Memories; and 5. Should Hypnosis Be Used to Interrogate or "Brainwash" Terrorists?
The terror of death plays a larger role in our inner life and our psychological problems than is generally thought. Too often psychotherapists avoid inquiry into death anxiety; either because they do not know what they can offer patients or because they have not confronted their own anxiety about death. If we come to terms with mortality in our own personal therapy and familiarize ourselves with the topic, we can offer a great deal to patients terrorized by death. Individuals with much terror about death can be helped, not only to enjoy relief from fear, but also may find that an encounter with death will enhance their life. As wise men have pointed out through the millennia, death confrontation can awaken us to a fuller life.Awakening experiences, if we learn to recognize them, are amply available in everyday therapy. One important method of coping is to avoid large reservoirs of un-lived life.
Midlife is a time of intense questioning: "Who am I? What do I really want? Where am I going? Who is going with me?" These are fundamental questions emerging from within, particularly as it refers to re-defining Life's purpose and finding meaningful, lasting solutions for the big questions emerging. This presentation examines archetypal passages and developmental impasses of maturity and aging, and provides generative suggestions to navigate through the challenges. Identifying those developmental impasses in your clients will facilitate building concise, precise, and to-the-point therapeutic interventions.
Often, "oh, no!" is the first response to loss, be it a wallet, loved one, or dream. Something is gone. What happens next? One could get mired in cultural expectations that there must be denial, anger, depression - or, one can flow through the natural grief sequence to understanding, having appropriate emotions and being proactive. Learn how to get back into balance processing grief with nature's intention - having loving and healthy connections.
This workshop will address the biological, social and psychological aspects of aging; what it feels like to be old; how the younger people in our lives respond to us; and what we need from the mental health profession. Mrs. Goulding will discuss loss - of people who are important to us as well as the loss of physical health, and sometimes the loss of the capacity to run our own lives. Also discussed will be the positives that the elderly can be helped to find. There will be lecture, fantasy and triads.
