Neuroscience documents how experiences of (1) Novelty, (2) Environmental Enrichment, and (3) Mental & Physical Exercise can optimize gene expression, brain plasticity (brain growth), and mind-body healing. We will practice psychotherapy as discussed in my recent book Creating Consciousness: How Therapists can Facilitate Wonder, Wisdom, Beauty, and Truth.
Current research in psychosocial genomics is reviewed to underpin a new evolutionary RNA/DNA epigenomic theory of the quantum transformations of consciousness and creative cognition. The alternating classical-to-quantum and quantum-to-classical transitions on all levels from mind to gene are explored for developing an understanding of how the 4-stage creative process operates in an evolving cosmos/consciousness field theory.
Family Constellations can be used in therapy as a process for treating sexual trauma. The experiential process accesses the heart as an organ of perception to explore, heal, and release sexual trauma while reclaiming clients’ empowered sexual selves. Employing a light meditation, therapist and client open the doors of awareness to ancestral and archetypal consciousness.
Milton H. Erickson, M.D. understood that the conscious (thinking) mind is where symptoms are frequently created and cultivated while the subconscious mind is a limitless storehouse of healing energies, potentials, and solutions. This short course will describe a deceptively simple, Ericksonian approach to becoming powerfully calm. Live demonstrations, experiential zone exercises, and case studies will be facilitated to teach how solution-focused questions, strategic interventions, and formal/conversational hypnotherapy effectively treat anxiety, depression, and trauma.
Working in collaboration with our clients to create solutions is one of the new directions that effectiveness based approaches advocate. The workshop leaders who live in Iran and United States respectively will be demonstrating these techniques. By utilizing culturally oriented assets, attendees will be offered a unique approach that can help empower people.
This workshop will provide a basic understanding of how to utilize dreamwork in psychotherapy, thereby providing an excellent alternative for patient care - especially when a patient's defenses are strong.
Lecture, group and individual demonstrations with volunteers from the audience will illustrate Rossi's activity-dependent approaches to therapeutic hypnosis and psychotherapy that are consistent with the theory and research on the molecular-genomic level plasticity for the creative reconstruction of mind, memory and consciousness.
The Generational Self approach emphasizes how the state of consciousness in which an experiential challenge is held determines whether a problem or solution develops. The model identifies three types of mind – Somatic, Cognitive, and Field,and how each mind can be operating at a Primitive, Ego, or Generative level. We will see how a problem degrades a person’s consciousness level so that change is impossible, and how that low-level state can be improved to a Generative level, so that the problematic experience either spontaneously changes, or is more easily engaged. Numerous practical techniques and clinical examples will be offered.
Describe the two aspects of consciousness that can be differentiated and then linked.
Identify four aspects of consciousness represented on the “rim” in the Wheel of Awareness practice.
