BT10 Fundamentals of Hypnosis 02 - A Phenomenological Approach to Induction - Jeffrey Zeig, PhD
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.
According to Helmholtz, reality consists of two abstractions. One is an independent or "objective" world that needs to be adjusted by a related or "subjective" world. However, a culturally determined atmosphere of detrimental double bind communication prevents experiencing both abstractions simultaneously, i.e. yielding chronic complaints. This workshop shows how easily one-sided behavior can be adjusted through utilizing a given individual's ambivalence via eliciting hypnotic phenomenology.
