Why did therapy legends Milton Erickson and Jay Haley routinely incorporate hypnosis into their creative strategies of psychotherapy? Because it works! Too many therapists think of hypnosis as distinct from what they do, yet are forever striving to immerse people in new experiences and perceptions - key reasons for employing hypnosis. In this workshop, we will explore how hypnosis can be strategically applied in therapy.
BT10 Workshop 52 - Process Oriented Hypnosis: Blending Positive Psychology, Mindfulness and Hypnotic Treatments - Michael D. Yapko, PhD
Positive Psychology suggests a shift in focus to what’s right with people. Mindfulness suggests a shift in focus toward acceptance and being more fully present. As soon as suggestion and focal shifts are employed in treatment, the patterns of hypnosis are inevitably involved. How can hypnosis amplify the merits of Positive Psychology and Mindful Meditation? In this workshop, we will explore the roles of selective attention and unconscious processes in engaging people in experiential learning.
