There is no map for becoming a fully human being, but there is a soul's compass. Orienting to true north requires interior freedom, curiosity and moment -to-moment awareness. The means to uncovering these intrinsic aspects of self, and the blocks to their recognition, are intrinsic to all the world's wisdom traditions.
This is a workshop with live Hypnotic Scaling clinical demonstration and practical exercises. Hypnotic Scaling is a simple Ericksonian & Solution Focused self-hypnotic technique to help your client self-control and resolve any Stress, Anxiety, Depression or other negative emotions.
What if our therapeutic goals of improving self-esteem, developing a stable and coherent sense of self, and expressing our authentic feelings all turn out to be misguided? What if they inadvertently feed the cultural enthusiasm for celebrity and success that makes so many of us miserable? This presentation will examine how mindfulness practices can be harnessed in psychotherapy to reexamine our conventional sense of self, leading both us and our clients toward greater well-being, wisdom, and compassion.
CC17 Workshop 15 - Healing the Fragmented Self in Couples Treatment - Janina Fisher, PhD
Couples enter relationships with unconscious hopes that these will be reparative, that their wounded child selves will finally experience the cherishing for which they have longed. As each triggers or disappoints the other's hurt child selves, protector parts rise to the defense with anger, withdrawal, threats, or shame. In this model, couples are helped to identify hurt, angry, fearful feelings as communications from young parts and their vigorous defensive responses as those of protector parts. By having a way to 'hover above' their conflicts, 'own' hurt and disappointment as the feelings of a young child, and take responsibility for their fight/flight behavior, couples develop a new language that promotes safety and closeness.
All growth takes place in relationships, which either enhance maturity, zest and self-regard or diminish these possibilities. Lerner will present the seven key steps that one person can take to dramatically alter the course of unhappy or downward spiraling relationships, with an eye toward helping clients restore self-esteem, accountability, personal clarity, and growth-fostering interactions.
The various aspects that contribute to low self-esteem in young women having a difficult relationship with their partner are helped with two Ericksonian techniques - - metaphors and symbolization. These aspects include healing emotional wounds, remaining at peace with their partner, learning to love themselves, working with social beliefs, limiting ideas and cultural prejudices and being responsible for their own well-being.
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.
Self-esteem, self-confidence and self-concept are closely connected with the development of human identity. The enhancement of self-esteem and identity formation can be used effectively in psychotherapy with children, especially in the treatment of anxiety disorders, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and many other social difficulties. Hypnotic interventions proved to be effective in working with children and adolescents on an individual basis.
