EP95 Invited Address 04b – Self Organizational Dynamics in Ericksonian Hypnotherapy – Ernest Rossi, PhD | Instant Download !
The evolution of psychotherapeutic methods over the past 200 years from Mesmer through the psychoanalytic schools, behaviorism and current cognitive psychology tells a fascinating tale of our evolving understanding of human nature. In this address we will trace the development of fundamental techniques such as suggestion, free association, active imagination, gestalt dialogue, focusing, Erickson’s indirect approaches and what I now call “The Basic Accessing Question.” A new conceptual framework for understanding these psychotherapeutic techniques is proposed in terms of the new nonlinear dynamics of complex, self-organizing systems, the dynamics of the Chaos, for facilitating self-reflection and the evolution of human consciousness.
- To list the basic stages in the evolution of psychotherapeutic methods in Depth Psychology.
- To recognize the three basic steps of the Basic Accessing Approach to Hypnotherapy.
- To recognize three new approaches to Ericksonian Hypnotherapy.
