In hypnotherapy, the specificities of the method create unique space for change by mobilizing the unconscious. To promote the development of the patient, based on the fusion of the conscious and unconscious, the hypnosis provides an effortless, genuine way to grow. The workshop aims to grasp these complementary fusing points in an in-depth case analysis where the workshop participants are invited to connect with their ideas, insights, challenges.
In the first part of the workshop, in the case presentation of a young man with mixed anxiety-depression symptoms and other specified personality disorder, different points of conscious and unconscious processes are examined. By unfolding a 25 session ericksonian hypnotherapy, various perspectives are enlightened of the conscious and unconscious processes and their complementarity: the planned and the spontanous processes, the therapy sessions and the outside therapy session processes, the hypnosis and the non-hypnosis sessions.
The second part of the workshop is focusing on the presented therapy’s phases and turning points where the conscious and unconscious cooperation is crystalizing. The participants have the possibility to reflect on their own therapeutical practice in terms of experiencing the conscious and unconscious processes cooperation.
In the third part of the workshop, the conclusions of the case analysis and the participants’ exchanges are summarized. By reflecting on the workshop content and their own practice, everyone can deepen the insight on conscious-unconscious fusing. The workshop takeaway is a personal growth from the common experience.
