WS05 – The Systemic View of Trance: The Use of Hypnosis with Couples and Families
Hypnosis will be presented no more as an individual/linear event but rather, within a system perspective, as a circular and evolving process, while couples and families will be considered as a source of natural healing resources that the therapist should discover and activate. Specific direct and indirect techniques required to induce a deep and meaningful change of the most rigid family patterns will be introduced. The demonstration of a family hypnotic session will give a clear idea of the powerful and subtle resistances families can develop in the course of the hypnotic treatment as well as of how naturalistic systemic hypnosis can transform these resistances in the required solutions.
1. Describe six different forms of systemic therapy according with the type of family resistance
2. List five different specific hypnotic inductions with families
