Values are exceedingly important dynamics in human motivation and behavioral choice. this workshop explores systemic ways in which values can be considered and incorporated into both hypnotic and non-hypnotic treatment. Participants will complete a values survey to assist in self-awareness.
This workshop will include demonstrating a smorgasbord of opportunity to engage the patient - the problem, the trance, and solutions; Interviewing for a sense of experiential style, idiosyncratic language and learned skills; Utilizing repeated trances of different sorts by each presenter with a volunteer. This will be interspersed with discussion and practice sessions for participants.
Symptoms are expressions of contradictory inner needs and movements and inner fights. This demonstration will show how the different parts of a person can be utilized as helpful “messengers of needs and knowledge” and as powerful competences for goal-serving synergy and context- flexible successful behavior.
This workshop will describe the Ericksonian principle of Utilization and its use in a trance induction. Utilization is a trademark of Ericksonian therapy and hypnosis and one of the things that makes it so effective and powerful. Live demonstration will help illustrate the concept. Exercises will help attendees to learn the concept of “Utilization”.
The most radical and enduring contribution of Milton Erickson to psychotherapy was the principle of utilization, which states that whatever a client presents, including negative experiences, can be positively used for therapeutic change. This presentation offers a theoretical framework for understanding how and why utilization is a generative principle in psychotherapy, emphasizing ideas of archetypal patterns, psychological sponsorship, deep structures vs. surface structures, and the central of role of skillful human presence in creating value in any experience.
Drs. Yapko and Zeig will engage with each other and the participants to examine commonalities and differences in their work. The Master Class centers on providing then deconstructing demonstrations of Ericksonian Psychotherapy and Hypnosis, providing a unique opportunity for in-depth learning.
Subject, patient, client, therapist, teacher, trainer, supervisor, supervised, all of us are shaped from an essence, the stuff we are made of, the hero within. This workshop will offer ways to utilize our hidden heroes, our hidden models in our therapeutic goals for inner change and help the patient build from the hero within himself/herself.
Breakthroughs in neuroscience explain how the brain, mind and body function. The work of Siegel, Rossi, Panksepp, Shore Iacoboni, Seligman and others provide a knowledge base that can be synthesized into a deeper understanding of these processes and suggest a new theory of the neuroscience of utilization. As a fundamental element of Ericksonian practice, it can only be helpful. Like pieces of a puzzle, we can connect disparate knowledge into a new and expanding picture.
In this workshop, we will adopt a positive approach and focus on aspects that are part of the FLOURISH model: Flow, Utilization, Resilience, Imagery to stimulate high levels of pleasure and satisfaction. These aspects can be developed with self-hypnosis exercises. Neurobiological aspects will be reviewed and impact of the flourish model on development. In practical exercises you can discover how to work out your own “petals of satisfaction.”
