Creative Psychosocial Genomics is proposed as the new foundation that underpins the neuroscience of therapeutic hypnosis and many psychotherapies. Currently it is the only evidence-based molecular-genomic approach to mind-body healing and problem solving that that facilitates (1) stem cell activation and a reduction of (2) chronic inflammation & (3) cellular oxidation.
Consciousness can be defined as increased awareness. Simply put it is, “seeing a bigger picture.” The more you understand yourself, the easier it is to understand other. AN individual’s consciousness is the “x” factor in therapeutic encounters. The short course with lecture and case discussions is useful to all skill levels. Non-pathological understandings and co-created solution for anxiety, depression, and PTSD are included in case discussions.
The Generative 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.
The administration, rationale, and research on the Creative Psychosocial Genomic Healing Experience will be explained and experienced by the entire audience. An individual volunteer from the audience will gain personal confidence in utilizing the 4-stage creative process in therapeutic hypnosis and psychotherapy.
We illustrate how easy it is to integrate yoga narrative and movement with Ericksonian mind-body work. We engage the entire audience in a live experience of facilitating brain plasticity for the creation of new consciousness. Demonstrations with volunteers illustrate how to utilize the natural 4-stage creative cycle of problem solving and healing in everyday life. Every level of fitness and mindfulness from beginners to mature wisdom gurus are welcome!
The Breakout Heuristic is a welcome volume to anyone interested in Rossi's chronobiological and psychobiological hypotheses of psychotherapy. The overview of his ideas will interest those who are adherents of the naturalistic, or Ericksonian, form of hypnosis.
