Understanding hypnosis as a composition of phenomenological elements facilitates induction. Basic methods will be described and demonstrated. Attendees will practice induction methods and learn indications for applying “hypnotherapy without trance” to empower clinical methods in any form of psychotherapy.
This workshop overviews the basic phenomenological shifts that occur in hypnotic trance, both spontaneously and through suggestion, and describes how they may be positively utilized for therapeutic change.
Deconstructing trance into phenomenological components allows the hypnotherapist to target intensions strategically. Hypnosis will be divided into social, psychological, and interpersonal elements. Lecture, demonstration, and small group practice.
Hypnosis is not a thing, but a way that things happen. To make hypnosis happen a clinician needs to understand the underlying architecture of trance. Eliciting systemic components elicits trance. The grammar, context and relational elements of eliciting these components will be explained. We will develop an induction model based on three steps. This workshop will consist of lecture, demonstration and small group practice.
According to Helmholtz, reality consists of two abstractions. One is an independent or "objective" world that needs to be adjusted by a related or "subjective" world. However, a culturally determined atmosphere of detrimental double bind communication prevents experiencing both abstractions simultaneously, i.e. yielding chronic complaints. This workshop shows how easily one-sided behavior can be adjusted through utilizing a given individual's ambivalence via eliciting hypnotic phenomenology.
Hypnosis is commonly thought of as a tool to enhance the therapy. It also can be used as a "lens." The phenomenology of hypnosis can help us to understand an essential aspect of the trance state, the symptom state, the solution state and the therapist's state, thereby providing new options for treatment.
Hypnosis is a method of injunctive communication used to help patients elicit previously dormant potentials. The phenomenology of Ericksonian hypnosis will be developed through lecture, demonstration and practice exercises.
