Dr. Burns will illustrate the ultra-rapid treatment of four cases of incapacitating and intractable anxiety disorders, including a woman with ten years of failed therapy for extreme depression and panic attacks, a woman with twenty years of failed psychoanalysis for the fear of elevators and hallways, a man with more than a decade of incapacitating social anxiety / fear of sweating in public, and a woman with more than twenty years of OCD / germ phobia (the same disorder that haunted the late billionaire, Howard Hughes.)

This video contains the best illustration of how Milton Erickson's handles cases presented to him. Using both hypnotherapy and strategic directives, Erickson works with a woman who has a phobia of a flying in a plane. This significant case exemplifies the fundamental principles and practices of an Ericksonian approach. These can be applied to other presenting problems and used by clinicians who subscribe to other treatment methodologies for a particular problem.
The author of this research and presentation will explore how Douglas Flemons, the developer of relational hypnosis, facilitated an enduring non-volitional shift with a client, “Grace,” who desired to have a baby but could not see or talk about blood, needles, or medical procedures without fainting. Using context-enriched conversation analysis (CECA), the author will describe how he embraced his understanding of Ericksonian and Neo-Ericksonian hypnosis methods as a guide to examine multiple sources of data, which included selected audio-recorded excerpts from Douglas and Grace’s hypnotherapeutic sessions; Grace’s descriptions of change in her email correspondence with Douglas; and Douglas’s case notes.
This workshop describes the use of hypnosis and self-hypnosis for treating phobias and panic disorders. The patient is learning a technique via which he can treat the problem him/herself. Building hope and diminishing helplessness is essential for a successful therapy and the workshop will address different possibilities to achieve this. The workshop is explaining the self-treatment technique via case examples. Homework assignments, pattern disruption, systemic considerations and stabilizing the treatment results are further topics.
Sargent's "Phobia Release Process; Heal the Essence of Self;" What if you could neutralize a phobic response in about 20 minutes, giving your clients a choice of how they respond in the face of that old stimulus? The Sargent Phobia Release Process stops knee-jerk, out-of-control panic reactions, and more importantly, gives the clinician the tools to then discover the underlying perceived threat to safety. Update the brain's database by reprogramming the amygdale in each hemisphere.
This workshop will provide participants with innovative and supportive strength-based interventions to address the unique impact of violence and trauma on adolescent girls. A model for applying Ericksonian hypnosis and metaphor will be presented and practiced. These techniques can be used to facilitate clients in reconnecting to a healthy mind/body state by applying tools for understanding and working with the expressions of trauma such as disordered eating, suicidal ideation, self-harming, addiction, depression, anxiety and phobias in the daily lives and relationships of young women.

Homework assignments, pattern disruption techniques and stabilizing the treatment results also will be discussed.
