The implications of our investigations into the nature and influence of temperament will be· elaborated by the concepts of temperament-environment interactions, goodness of fit and parent guidance as well as guidance of adolescents and adults in psychotherapy. These formulations will be applied to psychotherapeutic clinical practice with children, adolescents and adults. A 22 minute illustrative videotape will be shown.
Children's emotional problems are increasing. Ericksonian approaches provide good psychotherapeutical processes and efficient brief therapy for young people. A neuropsychological basis supports a coherent theoretic frame which explains the origin of emotional problems and clarifies why brief Ericksonian solutions are efficient.
By tapping in on the child's natural tendency for curiosity and mastery, and utilizing the natural everyday hypnotic communication patterns within the family, it is possible to create a therapeutic "hypnotic space" within the family. The use of brief hypnotherapy from a family therapy frame can help the child/adolescent disengage from the individualistic problematic view, increasing the possibility for more lasting generative changes. Special attention will be given to the role of parents as active participants in this therapeutic process.
Few cases are as difficult for therapists as those involving the intentional harm of one family member against another. This course provides participants the fundamentals of the model for treating family injustice developed by The Family Therapist Institute Midwest and presented in the new book, Treating Families and Children in the Child Protective System: Strategies for Systemic Advocacy and Family Healing. Didactic, participant discussion and videotape examples explain the model and its application.
From a masterful storyteller, learn how to assess a client for metaphor therapy, how to tell stories that engage the client, how to make the stories metaphoric, and where to find sources for such tales. You will be guided through the step-by-step processes with illustrative case examples and simple, pragmatic exercises.
In this workshop, we will focus on the importance of self-esteem as an explanation for the problematic behavior of children and teenagers and discuss recent neurological research. We will show cases to apply some Ericksonian solutions in children who share negative self- esteem for their problematic behavior.
