This workshop will teach six positive techniques that actually make Ericksonian experiential hypnosis successful. Dysfunctional families fail to teach children how to use their experiences to succeed. Consequently, clients learn dozens of self-defeating habits and later present in our offices as adults with depression, anxiety, phobias, etc. The desire to change, insight, and motivation do not counteract those habits - nor does hypnotic suggestion create such change. Experience is the key to cure.
After decades of working with anxious children and teens, I have two unshakable truths: families MUST be involved in treatment and anxious patterns are shifted through experiential learning. Working with the FOUR critical concepts to manage anxiety in families and the SIX patterns that must be interrupted, this workshop will describe HOW to create active, engaging assignments for families to do between sessions and describe the TEN favorites that I return to again and again.
This workshop presents a 3-Step Model for creating effective corrective experiences for traumatized clients. These steps are Hypnosomatic Resourcing, Re-regulating Nervous System Responses to Post-traumatic Triggering, and Repairing and Rewiring through Enduring Self-integration and Secure Attachment with Self and Others for Permanent Change. We will explore how to help clients shift from more passive responses in their lives to the use of action systems.
