BT14 Master Class - Jeffrey Zeig, PhD and Bill O'Hanlon, MS
Many schools of psychotherapy have been derived from the seminal work of Milton H Erickson M.D., including strategic therapy, interactional therapy, NLP and solution focused therapy. In some approaches hypnosis is central; in other approaches hypnosis is more peripheral. This class features two experts personally trained by Dr. Erickson, each of whom approach psychotherapy from somewhat different perspectives. In his approach, Possibility Therapy, Bill O'Hanlon epitomizes the strengths of a solution focused orientation. In his experiential approach, Jeffrey Zeig shades treatment in the direction of developing dramatic reference experiences.

EP00 Invited Address 9a - Facilitating Brain Growth with Ericksonian Psychotherapy? - Ernest Rossi, Ph.D.
Current research on neurogenesis (growth of new brain cells) indicates that novelty, environmental enrichment and physical exercise can facilitate new growth in the adult human brain. How can we optimize our Ericksonian approaches to support the psychobiological growth process?
EP00 Workshop 2 - Exploring New Ericksonian Approaches to Facilitate Brain Growth - Ernest Rossi, Ph.D.
Neuroscientists have proposed that the next ten years be devoted to exploring cognitive approaches to facilitating neurogenesis in the hippocampus of the adult human brain. Let's do it!
Movies are complex multi-sensory stories reflecting a specific world, transporting messages and solutions in order to provide the viewer with the possibility of identifying with the movie characters. Viewers get absorbed in movies and empathize, recognize consciously or subconsciously one’s own central topics in life. They provide the possibility of being catalysts for developmental processes that can be used in psycho-therapy. In this presentation participants will learn about the processes of watching movies and the trans-fer into therapy.
When women face unexpected pregnancies, they may experience a variety of feelings. Ericksonian techniques can help them consider alternatives. Short crises interventions such as future rehearsal and utilization will also be discussed as Ericksonian tools to be used during single session therapy. Participants will be able to discuss different alternatives such as adoption and ways to help keep their baby will be promoted. Age regression for coping with post-abortion syndrome will be described.
Ericksonian hypnotherapy and the Self-Relations approach are experiential methods of change. In combination they can be synergistic. Psychotherapy is best when clients have a first-hand experience of an alive therapeutic process. Such dynamic empowering experiences pave the way for dynamic understandings. Drs. Gilligan and Zeig will engage with each other and the participants to examine commonalities and differences in their work.
