The Workshop provides a synthetic theoretical framework of interpersonal motivational systems focusing on Cooperation and Social Play. It presents through clinical cases how the activation of these systems can be helpful in psychotherapy to elicit some emotional experiences and to evoke peculiar motivational and behavioural correlates. Finally, the Workshop illustrates how activating these systems can be valuable for patients with a compromised attachment system.
Through exercises and live group demonstrations, some hypnotic tools will be presented to elicit the activation of the cooperative and playing systems, such as utilization, shared attention, language, metaphors, and the different ways of sharing the hypnosis experience.

Participating in the workshop, attendees will learn how:
- Evoke and use the emotions of cooperation to promote social involvement and emotional co-regulation;
- Broaden the knowledge of interpersonal motivational systems and their activation mechanisms;
- Use rapport to create a hypnotic context that can promote cooperative exchanges in a naturalistic way;
- Explore the techniques to activate the cooperative system in hypnosis.
