The Bioinformatics of Enchanting Effectiveness is the scientific foundation of Milton H. Erickson's naturalistic and utilization approach to therapeutic hypnosis and psychotherapy via the psychosocial facilitation of gene expression and brain plasticity.
Ericksonian psychotherapy emphasizes the utilization of our resources. When I treat children with enuresis, I focus on resources and keep in mind that Ericksonian interventions should be brief because children may get tired of being in therapy for too long. Techniques tailored to a child and examples of inductions such as eye fixation utilizing toys will be presented. I will emphasize how to make several brief interventions quickly while utilizing "non human co-therapists" during home assignments, and the combination of conversational trance with tasks.
This workshop focuses on the practical applications of Milton Erickson's utilization approach and applications of hypnosis in working with children diagnosed with Asperger's and other high functioning autism spectrum disorders. There is evidence to suggest that more concrete and strategic applications of Erickson's utilization approach may better serve us when we treat ASD and other individuals with language, processing and attention disorders.
This presentation addresses the issues of teen anger and "acting out" from Erickson's utilization approach to treatment. Interventions psychotherapists can integrate into family therapy enhancing parent capabilities and encouraging improved relating to their teens will be presented.

The utilization of body work and improvisational theatre can be employed for different therapeutic purposes. In a therapy group with sexually abused survivors, it is a useful tool in the tradition of Ericksonian therapy. Since sensory body work and improvisational theatre elements are excellent tools to absorb the patient's attention in an equally structured and playful way, they become actors and creators of their new body experience. This will be an experiential workshop.
Dreams are a non-threatening way in which the subconscious mind expresses information and gives clues to solutions within the patient's own frame of reference. Ericksonian techniques in the utilization of dreams will demonstrate how to guide development and help people find ways to accept and learn from each experience that life sends our way.
