Metaphor, Mindfulness and Ericksonian Communication in the Healing Process
In this workshop we will explore the strategic Ericksonian communication techniques that create a fast, secure and trusting therapeutic relationship. By listening closely to our patient, we’ll identify their choice of metaphors in their expressing of their problem. This will be the base to establish the hypnotic healing relationship.
Metaphors are communicative events that convey different associations to the mind both for the client and the therapist. By listening carefully to the nature of the metaphors that clients use to describe their experience, and entering a creative dialogue that produces an expansion in consciousness, we will trigger hypnotic dissociative states, and convey therapeutic suggestions in a non-directive manner. This is the beauty of the Ericksonian approach to metaphor and hypnosis.
Mindfulness on the other hand, is a state of concentrated awareness of the present experience. It includes an attitude of curiosity, and a sense of relative emotional detachment from the inner experience. We will explore in which clinical situations this might be the treatment of choice.
These strategies, integrated with care and creativity enhance the hypnotic process of healing. In this two-hour workshop we will explore in detail the above elements, illustrated with different clinical vignettes (anxiety, depression, PTSD). This will be followed by a live demonstration and a discussion.
