American Hypnosis Association May 2019 Conference - Getting Comfortable with Silence, Ericksonian Hypnosis and Trance Phenomena, Making the Unconscious Conscious

Getting Comfortable with Silence

Todd Simon

Presented By: Todd Simon

The awkward pause. The fear of nothingness. We all like to fill our minds and sessions with words, concepts and talk. And yet, it is in silence and stillness that often times integration and change occur. The space for change. As hypnotherapists we know that a big part of our job is to listen to our clients, and also sometimes to overload them with message units. But there is a transitionary process of growth. Similar to how we need rest and sleep to heal, we also need silence to grow.

Getting comfortable with silence, as a person and as a hypnotherapist, is essential. Allowing our clients to be okay with silence will often allow them to go deeper. Oftentimes, we have well-crafted memories and defense mechanisms that arise as we tell our story - over and over again. Silence allows for new awareness and perceptions. In this presentation, you will learn the importance of silence in the healing arts and meditation, and studies that show the physiological benefits. Explore the concept of empty space in art, akin to silence. You will be led through some exercises to see that silence is actually golden!

Ericksonian Hypnosis and Trance Phenomena

Michael Kamins

Presented By: Michael Kamins

Milton H. Erickson is one of the great hypnotherapists and communicators of the 20th Century. An important facet of Erickson’s work was his utilization of trance phenomena. Trance phenomena – the special FX of consciousness – are those natural cognitive and sensory distortions accompanying states of intense focus, flow, and hypnosis e.g. Hallucination, Amnesia, Anesthesia, Catalepsy, Ideodynamic, etc. These tend to be viewed as the “side effects” of hypnosis, but for Erickson they are essential for hypnotherapy and a regular feature of our everyday experience. Trance phenomena represent our vast potential for adaptation, but they are also how we stay stuck in problem-states.

In this presentation a hypnotic modality centered on trance phenomena will be discussed: Ericksonian language patterns for evoking trance phenomena and building them into suggestions; identifying and treating the trance phenomena in a client’s problem; examples of Erickson’s utilization of trance phenomena in clinical cases and his personal use of them for overcoming polio symptoms, chronic pain, writer’s block, and more.

Making the Unconscious Conscious

Presented By: Joe Burns

Joe Burns

We spend most of our lives on auto-pilot. Our behavior, habits, and beliefs are run from programming that is conditioned into our subconscious from a young age. Many people fail to reach their goals and dreams or achieve real life change and they blame themselves and each failure on a lack of will power and self-discipline.

Our self-esteem is subjected to and suggestible to a constant barrage of negativity and comparisons from the outside, through anti-Social Media, and sabotaged from within by our own limiting beliefs and dialogue. To experience real change – we must reprogram our subconscious mind and align our conscious focus to our goals and dreams. This means getting ourselves “ON PURPOSE”… this means “making the unconscious conscious”!

This was a great lesson on something that is always there for us, yet we don't understand the power of it. A great reminder. Also, understanding how silence is used in therapy is great for changing the relationship from conversational to therapeutic.
