The language of hypnosis is an expressive grammar oriented to eliciting changes in state, mood, and perspective. We will study the use of truisms, yes-sets, presuppositions, dissociation statements, and implied causatives. Lecture, demonstration, practice.
Priming is the process of directly or indirectly introducing new ideas to clients and preparing them for new perspectives and behaviors. Attendees will learn what priming is, the theory behind what occurs in the brain when priming occurs, and how to incorporate priming into the therapeutic dialogue to resolve resistance, discover solutions, and create therapeutic movement.
Consultation can be a valuable process in the provision of therapeutic services to clients. Traditional case presentation scenarios can lead to limited, reactive dialogues that solidify the therapist’s sense of “stuckness.” The reflecting team approach to consultation uses reflexive questioning to allow non-reactive associations free from the constraints of conversation thinking to access all of the participants’ inner resources. This workshop will explore the elements of meaningful consultation with discussion, video, and live demonstration.
Music is an effective Brief Therapy tool that can be used to instantly access right brain intelligence, elicit conscious and unconscious material for processing, and induce hypnotic states that render listeners receptive to positive suggestions of wellness, relaxation, and integration. A single short song can cut through resistance, setting the perfect atmosphere for a highly productive session.
Music within a hypnotherapy model functions as a catalyst accentuating the nuances of seeding, guiding associations, and deepening trance states. Participants will experience and practice how to musically transform mood states, utilize music creatively and effectively within a hypnotherapy session, and explore the latest research on the melody-mind-body link.
This workshop will explore the expanding role of creativity in the treatment of resistance. It will integrate Erickson’s resistance protocol with principles from physics and classical music composition theory. Five major components of Erickson’s protocol: validation, the experience of failure, motivation, the conscious/unconscious polarity, and the experience of uncertainties with respect to the lessening of the patient’s defenses will be integrated with the concepts of mass, momentum, motion, position, time, creative repetition and harmony.
This demonstration will show how to apply principles of Generative Change to creatively transform and integrate symptoms that emerge in the form of interference or resistance. By combining somatic modeling with the three positive connections of a generative state, obstacles and resistances can be transformed into a more resourceful expression and brought into alignment with therapeutic goals.

This interactive workshop utilizes the group to teach and apply highly effective trance methods, combined with evidenced-based research from Stanford, and drama therapy action methods, (i.e. sociometric scaling, role reversal to increase empathy and the empty chair), to address clients’ unwillingness to give up defensiveness, blame and other relationship problems.
This workshop will explore how the processes and variables of quantum physics can be integrated with mind-body hypnotherapy in the treatment of couples and organizations. The intention of the workshop is to support the expansion of trust within professionals to contain resistance and creatively focus attention, facilitating novelty, rapport, and opportunities for learning. The Erickson Resistance Protocol and Poincare's four stage creative process will be utilized to provide a template to develop internal yes sets for quantum principles, processes and variables. Emphasis will be placed on how the grandiosity and victim subsets of resistance, and the appreciation of intent and accountability are related to the quantum variables of momentum, motion, time, space and position.
