This Masterclass is based on Dr. Yapko’s latest book Process-Oriented Hypnosis.
Milton Erickson was often credited with being a “mind-reader,” but he simply said he was more observant than most. Realistically, there are many common denominators of human experience that can make one seem a mind reader to a client when touching on them in the course of therapy. Likewise, there are many common denominators of the problems therapists are frequently asked to address, especially anxiety and depression, but many others as well. Developing a process-oriented approach encourages identifying and then addressing these common denominators, using hypnosis as an especially powerful amplifier of relevant therapeutic messages. Simply put, hypnosis can be especially well used to address generalities that can have very specific effects.
Based on Dr. Yapko’s most recent book, Process-Oriented Hypnosis: Focusing on the Forest, Not the Trees, the advantages of a macro-view of people’s problems will be described as a complement to the more typical micro-views clinicians focus upon. The Society for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis gave this book its esteemed Arthur Shapiro Award for being the “best book on hypnosis in 2021.” Milton Erickson’s daughter, Dr. Roxanna Erickson-Klein, said this of the book in her published review: “In this work, Yapko explores tailoring…(he) takes this basic concept and turns the whole picture upside down and inside out. And in so doing, he may have arrived at the most Ericksonian of all approaches…I find Process-Oriented Hypnosis to be among the most significant contributions of the last half century.”In this 9-hour webinar, we’ll explore this gentle style of process-oriented hypnotic intervention. The emphasis will be on targeting the structural components of problems rather than their content. This means striving to better understand how the client generates their symptomatic experience rather than attempting to explain why.
