BT03 Clinical Demonstration 03 - Facilitating the Four-Stage Creative Process in Psychotherapy - Ernest Rossi, PhD
1) To name the essentials of a behavioral activity-dependent approach to creative work.
2) To list the four stages of the creative process in psychotherapy.
An introductory presentation reviewing how our daily mental activity may turn on the activity-dependent gene expression and protein synthesis cycle to construct and reconstruct the neural networks of our mind-brain and facilitate healing of the body. We will explore innovative approaches to facilitating the four-stage creative process in therapeutic hypnosis and psychotherapy in a group process and individual demonstrations.
Recent neuroscience research suggests that empathy, rapport and transference may be mediated by our mirror neurons. this new view of the basic talent of all psychotherapists will be explored during group processes and individual demonstrations utilizing Rossi's innovative approaches to therapeutic hypnosis and psychotherapy.
Three brief, novel, creative and easy to learn approaches to the induction of therapeutic hypnosis that are appropriate for practically any client issue with any theoretical orientation will be shared with participants. All of these approaches have evolved from Erickson's original "hand levitation technique" and are consistent with the principles of art, beauty, and truth presented in the new 2008 series of "The Collected Works of Milton H. Erickson," Vol.1, "The Nature of Therapeutic Hypnosis."
