We therapists are increasingly suffering from
Traditionally learning about hypnosis requires memorising a script - "Look at that spot, relax your body, your eyes are getting sleepy, etc., etc., etc.
Milton Erickson revolutionised all this by inviting us to focus on
This approach results in a huge relief as well as our effectiveness increasing markedly.
It's not surprising that there is a growing interest in hypnosis, and Ericksonian hypnosis in particular, since this approach emphasises looking with each individual person for what will be relevant for them to resolve their difficulty.
Instead of needing to memorising complex protocols, rigid scripts, standard techniques, we can have a simple, lively, creative, and mutually respectful conversation enabling each client to regain their own autonomy, their own self trust, and create their own solution.
This approach emphasises
From my time with Milton Erickson in the last few years of his life, I learnt the importance of
In our increasingly busy lives, traveling to attend workshops with all the expenses involved can be a strain, and how often are we left with an admiration of the presenter, a ream of notes ... but not enough confidence in applying the content, however wonderful it may be.
The online environment is revolutionising this. After some initial wariness, it is emerging as a powerful, relevant, and cost effective medium for learning.
The background text, talks and video demonstrations can be explored in our own time, at our own rate, and repeated as often as is useful - something that physical workshops lack.
The recent addition of video calls where we can see each other, face to face, and even online breakout rooms where we can practice together allows for conversations, live demonstrations, and recurrent practice opportunities with people from all round the globe.
Trust, safety, respect, variety and lively, solid learning result.
The learning becomes confidently embodied as a natural self expression, without any need to memorise anything.
Learning hypnosis practicum has emerged from my 40 years of using and teaching in Australia, Europe, Scandinavia, Asia, Ericksonian Conferences, and online.
Students report that this practical, easily incorporated approach dramatic enhances their therapy results, generates relief, a feeling of "coming home", enjoyment and satisfaction.
The 3 month Learning hypnosis practicum includes text, audio and videos and is centred around 12 video conversations each of 2 hours [a total of 24 hours].
Each 2 hour video call will include
Learning by recurrent practice is how we learnt to walk, write, ride a bicycle, drive a car ... any skill ... and skills learnt this way are naturally and effortlessly available to us. We don't need to think about how to walk, write our name, ride a bicycle, drive a car ... we can then focus on using these skills in the best possible way.
This programme honours this approach to learning.
This programme will include recurrent opportunities to converse, reflect, discuss cases, observe a live demonstration on each call which can include personal therapy.
By participating and observing experiences as they happen in the video calls, the resulting learning will be immediate and solid.
The compact size of the group [limited to 10] and the experience of seeing each other will allow a safe and trusting community to be created where we can learn together in a mood of play, without fear of criticism. Confidence is just one more outcome.
