Short Course 01 – Erika Chovanec, PhD – Multifocal brain images self-synchronization – using mindfulness and hypnotherapy when treating anxiety, trauma and somatoform disorders

This workshop includes examples of actual therapeutic sessions that demonstrate mindfulness and hypnotherapeutic methods to foster natural brain images self-synchronization, self-organization and integration for treating anxiety, trauma and somatoform disorders. The methodology for this procedure is introduced, whereby the quality of bifocal images is analyzed. Based on mindfulness approach inspired by the “Psychology of Being” of Abraham Maslow, you learn the simple symptom-oriented technique, in which “being- perception” ability is employed to utilize “symptom-trance” with the purpose of enhancing spontaneous unconscious brain images self-synchronization as well as, what Maslow would call healing “being-trance”, which prevents negative “deficit-perception” of patients in relation to symptoms. The exact steps of this method and relevant trance-qualities which Maslow would call “being-values” are introduced. Furthermore, the ways in which this point of view correlates with Ernest Rossi’s approach, evolutionary biology, physics and neurobiology and the visibility of mind-body connection in biofeedback and neurofeedback are discussed.

Educational Objectives

  1. List three ways of how mindfulness can encourage healing through unconscious images synchronization
  2. State three hypnotherapy techniques for treatment of stress related and somatoform disorder
  3. Explain three ways how symptoms can be utilized and how we can observe trance phenomena in biofeedback and neurofeedback
