This workshop will explore how the processes and variables of quantum physics can be integrated with mind-body hypnotherapy in the treatment of couples and organizations. The intention of the workshop is to support the expansion of trust within professionals to contain resistance and creatively focus attention, facilitating novelty, rapport, and opportunities for learning. The Erickson Resistance Protocol and Poincare's four stage creative process will be utilized to provide a template to develop internal yes sets for quantum principles, processes and variables. Emphasis will be placed on how the grandiosity and victim subsets of resistance, and the appreciation of intent and accountability are related to the quantum variables of momentum, motion, time, space and position.
Utilization of Dr. Erickson's approaches can be daunting. They are both meticulously planned and rehearsed, as with his Induction for Resistant Patients, and spontaneous and intuitive, responding at the moment to his patient. Dr. Greenleaf will present 7 of his own brief cases, each of which required spontaneous, intuitive response to patient needs. They are called: 2 Promises: Postcards, Death Grip; 2 Threats: Bust, “I Like That Wall”; 2 Doorways to Reality: “You Wonned”, “I’d Like to Have That Desk” and "3 Counter Tenors"
Transparent hypnotherapy instead of indirectness- how clients as active co-hypnotherapist with all their senses can be invited to utilize symptoms as competent messengers of needs. In the Ericksonian tradition on the one side it is assumed that the knowledge and competences are already existent within the clients but on the other side many hypnotherapeutic interventions are structured as rather indirect and intransparent for the conscious mind of the clients.
Is peace within really possible? We propose Erickson's naturalistic-utilization therapy and Rossi's 4-Stage Creative Process are consistent with yoga's science of self-inquiry, mental dexterity and Buddha's 4 Noble Truths. We will practice gentle yoga exercise for all fitness levels and share transformational ancient stories of our new neuroscience of mind-body therapy.
Most people live in survival based thinking and feeling by repeating the same reactions to similar triggers, and have forgotten what it means to live in harmony and connection with themselves and each other. Chronic depression, anxiety, rumination, and other psychological problems are not natural states. As science explodes new findings of how to live more often in states of resilience and thriving, these tools can be easily learned and taught to clients.
This experiential workshop promises to provide attendees with techniques which can be adopted or adapted for their patients whose response to stress is problematic. Their patients can benefit from learning select techniques which have the power to guide them in the direction of mental and physical ease. These coping interventions are easy to learn and easy to teach.
Mr. Miyagi (The Karate Kid, 1984) taught his student, Daniel many things. Among them, things are not always as they seem and about functionality. Simple day-to-day activities can also be karate moves, which Daniel wanted to learn. Milton Erickson, a Western version of Mr. Miyagi, introduced us to his concept of utilization in psychotherapy, or functionality. So important was this discovery that the concept of utilization is now a part of virtually every form of talk therapy and healthcare fields in general; it is now common sense.
During our entire life - from adolescence to old age- we face transition phases, changes and passages going towards the future. During life passages hypnosis can help to harmonize the process of losses and winnings, change and adaptation, crisis and opportunity. The workshop will show a hypnotherapeutic model based on the identification of the resources of the present with which to revisit the traumas of the past and then turn to the future with hope and resiliency.
Dissociation can be described as the failure to integrate information and self-attributions that should ordinarily be integrated, and as alterations of consciousness characterized by a sense of detachment from the self and/or the environment. The strong connection between Hypnosis and Dissociation is known since the time of Pierre Janet's pioneer work. Dissociative hypnotic intervention demonstrated to be very useful in treating pain, anxiety disorders and many other conditions.
You will learn the core strategies of a cognitive therapy intervention that radically and swiftly shifts the client’s point of view regarding both their relationship with OCD and the tactics of change. The principles will be illustrated by brief video clips of a 45-minute initial treatment session from the author's live demonstration at the 2018 Brief Therapy Conference. These will include establishing rapport, developing placebo, generating an outcome picture, dismantling their dysfunctional logical system, and persuading them to adopt the paradoxical frame of reference.
