Dissociation is a critical element in hypnosis. But its converse, association, is highly useful in generating individualized hypnotic therapy. This demonstration will illustrate the importance of utilizing associations of both the subject and the hypnotist.
The modern perspective of hypnosis considers the role of attention and absorption in catalyzing adaptive responses. Hypnosis provides a context for developing new associations on multiple levels that have therapeutic potential. In this clinical demonstration, a hypnosis session will be conducted to assist the client in evolving resources that may be helpful to facilitate personal growth.
Come see and experience how to move seamlessly and effortlessly into a conversational trance induction while introducing clients to meditation. You will learn how to dissolve the difference between description (“Here’s what meditation is and how you do it”) and invitation (“You can just notice and note the feel, . . . the sense . . . of your breath”). The method will be demonstrated with a volunteer, but everyone in the audience will have an opportunity, if they wish, to participate in the experiential part of the process.
A well-known self-hypnosis technique will be taught in a way that it is at the same time a first trance induction for a client. There will be one demonstration client but at the same the whole group can learn the approach too. This includes an old oriental story of the lion who saw his face in the water. At the end it will be discussed how this approach can be tailored for individual clients and modified for many goals: treating chronic pain, phobias, sleeping disorders, etc.
In this demonstration I will explore what the client likes, creating a respectful access to resources. I will clarify with the client what resource would be useful and then invite the client into hypnosis by focusing and becoming absorbed in the experience of what they like, support them in discovering the missing resource and then assist them to bring this resource to the problem experience, creating a respectful and permanent resolution.
This demonstration will focus on using Emotional Freedom Techniques to treat the negative affect of a traumatic or stressful incident followed by using Narrative approaches and imagery to integrate changes into the clients life and identity.
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.
If somebody experiences a problem this can be described as self-made constructions of reality (not wanted, on an involuntary and mostly unconscious level) which expresses a discrepancy between what is experienced as "it is just happening“ and "what should be“. Suffering evolves when the conscious mind is fighting the unwanted involuntary reactions to tries to escape from them or erase them because all these attempted solutions fail.
In this demonstration I will present how to introduce to the client the concept of Universal Wisdom and how to utilize it during the session. We are going to work with the minimum information about the problem because we are going to work with what I call Universal Topics that underly the problem. The problem will be treated with several different mini trances that trigger processes that will continue in the hands of Universal Wisdom.
