The workshop is based on the experience of work with couples that remain in a situation of somatic sickness of one member of the relationship.

Educational objectives:

  • to demonstrate hypnosis as a therapeutic tool in empowering the strength of bonds and ability of partners to support each other in a close relationship.
  • to practice hypnotic techniques allowing one to induct a self-healing process through utilization of resources stored in the field of the couple common unconsciousness.
  • to develop the ability to use metaphorical language as a way to exploit the resources of both partners.

The presenters will demonstrate live work with a couple, describe and discuss a case study and provide experience of working together, both therapists and patients, at a therapeutic session.
