IC01 Short Course 06 - Combining Ericksonian Approaches and Thought Field Therapy to Challenge Prior Negative Assumption - Suzanne M. Connolly, MSW, CISW
Techniques developed by both Milton Erickson and Roger Callahan, the founder of Thought Field
Therapy, challenge psychological assumptions ingrained in old philosophical constricts. These
non-insight oriented approaches, when used creatively, can lead to dramatic changes even in
areas as seemingly pervasive as self-esteem. Attendees will learn to combine Ericksonian
reframes and Thought Field Therapy to facilitate core self-concept change.
Attendees will be introduced to Ericksonian interventions and Thought Field Therapy interventions. They have been successfully utilized by the presenter to treat the symptoms of trauma in clinical settings, in the field (Rwanda and other African countries) and in large group settings (Charity Hospital and other new Orleans institutions.)
