This introduction will include core concepts, differing views of hypnosis, differing applications, core elements of hypnotic processes, and address some of the research and directions the field is moving in. The presenter will also do group hypnosis, and exercises in getting used to hypnotic language and facilitating hypnotic phenomena.
Deconstructing trance into phenomenological components allows the hypnotherapist to target intensions strategically. Hypnosis will be divided into social, psychological, and interpersonal elements. Lecture, demonstration, and small group practice.
In this session, you will learn a clear model that will allow you to rapidly conceptualize problems, sort them for appropriateness for hypnotic intervention, and create multiple interventions. You will also learn five delivery methods for interventions.
This workshop provides an overview of the Ericksonian theory of utilization and then explores through demonstration, clinical examples, and a brief group exercise how to incorporate a client's processes—positive and negative associations, positive goals, desired futures, ongoing behaviors--in both the induction and utilization parts of Ericksonian hypnotherapy.
Revolutionary research in neuroscience documents how experiences of (1) Novelty, (2) Environment Enrichment, and (3) Mental & Physical Exercise can optimize gene expression, brain plasticity (brain growth), and mind-body healing. We will learn how to use our highest and most inspired states of consciousness to facilitate optimal gene expression and brain plasticity while healing stress and trauma.
This segment will cover essential topics and terminology in hypnosis. The process of a hypnotic session will be explained. Participants will practice observing and elicitation of focused awareness in hypnotic subjects.
The utilization of hypnosis always involves the hypnotic phenomena. This session will explore the various phenomena and their role in clinical contexts. Participants will practice elicitation of hypnotic phenomena.
One of Erickson’s landmark contributions to hypnosis was his introduction of indirection as a therapeutic approach. This final section of the training explores the ways in which anecdotes, metaphors, and other indirect methods can be utilized.
What is hypnosis? What is the Ericksonian difference? How do you help clients elicit a constructive trance experience? What is the most effective way to strengthen messages? In experiential workshop, participants will learn how to elicit a trance state and how to enhance responsiveness. Powerful hypnotic language forms can be tailored so that a trance is developed in an appropriate and efficient way for each client. Demonstration inductions, and work in small groups to induce and experience hypnotic states. Targeted to the beginner. No previous experience necessary. This is a one-day workshop and attendees are expected to attend all sessions.
