The Creative Genius of Milton Erickson: How You can Use the Same Methods for the Best Results with Your Clients

Daniel Short, PhD

Course Program

Sydney 12 September 2018 SMC Conference and Function Centre

  

This course will provide you with the information needed to excel in Ericksonian Hypnotherapy.  Join Dr Dan Short, one of the foremost Ericksonian scholars and internationally esteemed teacher-trainers. Dr Short will teach you how to use the same reasoning and clinical strategies that Milton Erickson used to successfully assist clients with a multitude of problems such as:

  • Trauma
  • Mental Health Issues
  • Relationship issues
  • Substance misuse and other such issues.

It is often said of Erickson that he was a creative genius. Naturally, there is some concern from others that they will not be able to replicate his dynamic approach to therapy. However, as Dr Short can personally testify to, every practitioner can employ the attitudes and habits of thought that make the Ericksonian approach so effective. What makes this approach to hypnosis and therapy so rewarding is not only the surprising accomplishments produced by the client but also the rich rewards of creativity and new learning that the therapist gets to enjoy on a session by session basis.

Attend this fascinating training session and let Dr Short take you on a journey from the history of Milton H Erickson’s work through to how to do Ericksonian therapy in your daily practice and how to achieve wonderfully surprising results with your clients.

The course will take you through the underpinning foundations of Ericksonian Hypnotherapy. By the time you complete this course, you will know how to do hypnotherapy without the need for structured hypnotic inductions, without the need for hypnotherapy scripts, and without the need to struggle against “resistance” to therapy. You will know how to tailor what you do to each client as an individual.

This course will also teach you advanced communication skills which can be helpful in a wide range of life situations. If you have trained in hypnotherapy, counselling, coaching, or NLP or other similar fields then Ericksonian hypnotherapy should make great additional skills for your tool-box to use with clients you have been trained to work with.  It should also give you a greater understanding about your use of language and other skills with clients even if you aren't doing hypnosis.

 

What Will I Learn?

  • By the end of the course you will know how to offer hypnotherapy without the need for strange gestures, eye closure, hypnotherapy scripts, or rigid induction sequences.
  • You will be prepared to utilize almost any response clients give you to help them achieve their goals in therapy.
  • You will learn about the importance of observation skills, how to see subconscious needs and how to work with those needs.  
  • You will learn to think more like Erickson and thus see greater opportunities for creativity and the reduction of human suffering, regardless of the condition or unfortunate circumstances.

 

Dr. Dan Short is considered one of the leading experts in the next generation of Ericksonian hypnotherapists. He teaches Ericksonian Therapy internationally and has partnered with Scott Miller to conduct clinical trials of Ericksonian Therapy. As author of the recently released “Core Competencies of Ericksonian Therapy” which is a treatment manual that makes this research possible, and as author of the highly acclaimed text “Hope & Resiliency: Understanding the Psychotherapeutic Strategies of Milton H. Erickson”, Dr. Short has literally written the book on the subject. He has been identified by members of the Erickson family and Erickson’s most famous pupils as one of the most important new leaders within this expanding global movement.
