Michael A. Kamins

Become a Certified Practitioner of Ericksonian Hypnosis

Spend two full days immersed exclusively in the ideas and methods of Milton H. Erickson. Milton H. Erickson, MD (1901-1980) was one of the most innovative and effective hypnotherapists of all time, known especially for his indirect approach to “therapeutic trance.”

The 7-Step Strategy of Therapeutic Trance

This workshop is an intensive and broad exploration of the major concepts and techniques of Erickson’s hypnotic work. Not only a sprawling odyssey of cutting-edge ideas, this is also an opportunity to practice a variety of Erickson’s hypnotic communication patterns while learning a streamlined distillation of Ericksonian Hypnosis – “The 7-Step Strategy of Therapeutic Trance.”

Emphasizing trance-states and the utilization of “internal resources” (over direct suggestion), Therapeutic Trance uniquely supplements Hypnotherapy and can revolutionize your practice.
