Personal identity is both heavily defended and reframable. When accepted as a given, rapport ensues. Patients are then challenged to define themselves: self-description, value priorities, and goals/perceived roadblocks/plan. Being held responsible for what is under their sole control minimizes regression, and promotes responsibility and morale.
This demonstration entails identification of desired change, assessment and enhancement of motivation, and implementation of a solution oriented, strategic intervention. This approach utilizes client strengths and experiences to improve outcome through accessing prior success experiences.
Much of this Workshop will address issues of culture, race, sexual orientation, diversity and social justice and equality, etc. A major premise is the idea that all therapy is multicultural therapy. This means that every client brings to therapy a unique world and therefore the challenge for every therapy is for the therapist to be able to enter the unique world of each client. This therapy method is especially adept at working with cultural differences as it is highly adaptable and therefore able to work within the unique world of the client.
Este video contiene la mejor ilustración de cómo Milton Erickson maneja los casos que se le presentan. Utilizando tanto la hipnoterapia como las directivas estratégicas, Erickson trabaja con una mujer que tiene fobia a volar en un avión. Este caso significativo ejemplifica los principios y prácticas fundamentales de un enfoque ericksoniano. Estos pueden aplicarse a otros problemas que se presenten y ser utilizados por los médicos que se suscriben a otras metodologías de tratamiento para un problema en particular.
Milton Erickson often advised psychotherapy students to study anthropology so that therapy could be provided from the perspective of the cultural background of the client. In the video, Erickson uses his understanding of cultural orientation when working with an adolescent where the presenting problem is a speech defect. This is a highly informative case of using strategic and systemic processes that can be applied to other presenting problems.
