In part three of a Teaching Seminar with Milton Erickson, we continue the development of trance experience in the primary subject. You will encounter the experiential teaching method for which Erickson was renowned.
In 1979, Milton Erickson and Jeffrey Zeig spent five hours reviewing a demonstration that Erickson conducted at a teaching seminar. That demonstration is now available as a training video for Ericksonian practitioners. Erickson’s experiential methods include the symbolic use of hypnotic phenomena, encouraging resistance, naturalistic confusion technique, seeding, and using isomorphic anecdotes. Jeffrey Zeig discusses the mechanics of Erickson’s unique approach to psychotherapy. Working with Resistance provides an opportunity to watch a master hypnotherapist demonstrate his technique.
This workshop will present a new model for delivering highly effective family therapy in a very brief time period utilizing multi-family group therapy workshops. A literature review as well as outcome research data will be presented along with audio-visual material to increase attendees' experiential understanding of the process.
Most therapy is verbal and logical; most troubled teens are neither! Brain scans now explain why, and we need to connect with kids where they are. Adolescents respond to experiential and behavioral approaches. Successful intervention with teens includes activities engaging the body, mind, emotion and creativity to accomplish far more than talk therapy alone. Come experience several fun, interactive strategies immediately useful with teenage clients, no matter how withdrawn, hostile, or defensive they appear to be.
