This workshop will address the rapid treatment of trauma by utilizing both Mindfulness practice and Ericksonian orientation’s that understand the importance of the symptom as a pathway to inner healing. We will review the clinical skills of tracking, pacing and utilization of the symptom for accessing the un-conscious and inner resources with mindfulness and trance. The workshop will highlight Milton Erickson’s use of storytelling, metaphor and rapid trance induction as well as the use of mindfulness practice for framing, reframing and de-framing for the immediate reorganization of transforming somatic-affective experience into new healing rhythms in the body.
OCD affects an estimated 2-3% of the adult population and is recognized by therapists as a difficult and long-lasting disorder. A number of useful strategies for working with OCD will be presented in this workshop. The presenter will discuss B.B.Geary’s continua of the trance phenomena concept in the OCD treatment.
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.
Useful techniques of Altering Trances that block clients from achieving their goals will be discussed, and demonstrated. These techniques do not require knowledge of hypnosis to employ but were designed and draw from hypnotic understanding of language. This approach is compatible with other treatment modalities, and simply gives participants
Somatic problems seem to have a mind of their own, so why not embrace and utilize this acumen when working with them hypnotically? Learn how to conceptualize trance as a “meeting of minds” and how to respect and engage the mindfulness of body-based symptoms when inviting them to change.
The number of burnout-syndromes and associated depressive reactions is increasing tremendously. In postmodern global business situations many people have so many tasks at the same time that it is to-tally impossible to fulfill them. At the same time especially people with high achievement standards and intensive loyalty attitudes try to fulfill them all and finally get frustrating insufficient results compared to these perfectionistic goals.
Conversational Trances occur in virtually every good therapy session. Possessing phenomena of “regular” hypnosis, they speak powerfully both directly and indirectly to the unconscious. Often this opportunity is ignored. This workshop will show ways to create, use and become comfortable trusting both your and the client’s own abilities with this.
This workshop invites a therapy that helps people learn to shift their mental states in order to adopt the stance needed for the moment as an alternative to use of meds to adapt to a disturbed environment. This therapy encourages people to use their natural full range of consciousness in order to transform their environments. Many environments are not human friendly and endanger the well-being of our-selves as workers and our children.
Clinical case demonstrates an integrative approach of treating deep trauma. DTMR approximates east and west, old and new traditions. Utilizes concepts from occidental psychotherapy, transpersonal influ-ences and some about Kardecism, Buddhism and Xamanism. Through a deep trance, active, eclectic DTMR responds as a tool for patients with PTSD and dissociation.
Erickson commented that, for most clinical work, a light to medium trance is sufficient. But there are instances when it is helpful to elicit deep trance phenomena, such as hypnotic amnesia, immobility, analgesia, dissociation, and positive hallucinations. The elicitation of these abilities will be demonstrated as well as utilization of failure to produce certain deep trance phenomena.
