Process?Oriented Hypnosis: Being General Deliberately to Produce Specific Results
Dr. Yapko is the author of 15 books (including Trancework (5th edition), Taking Hypnosis to the Next Level, Mindfulness and Hypnosis, and The Discriminating Therapist), and editor of three others. These products will not be promoted or sold during this program.
Milton Erickson was often credited with being a mind?reader, but he vigorously rejected that label and simply said he was just more observant than most people. Realistically, there are many common denominators of human experience that can make one seem a mind reader to a client when addressed in the course of therapy. Hypnosis can be especially well used to address generalities that have very specific effects in addressing medical and psychological issues. In this workshop, we?ll explore this gentle style of hypnotic intervention. A structured skill?building practice opportunity and a video demonstration of a process?oriented session regarding depression conducted with a Spanish?speaking patient through a translator will be featured during this presentation.
