Dr. Erickson and his ability to produce trance states during his conversations with his patients is well known. The use of metaphors, language patterns and different techniques (seeding techniques, utilization...) facilitates obtaining very revealing moments of insight for the patient that contribute great richness to the intervention.
During this workshop we will see why it is important to use metaphors in a hypnotic conversation and how a subtle use of language facilitates achieving conversational hypnosis.

- Why is the use of metaphors important in a hypnotic conversation?
- What relationship exists between obtaining the hypnotic response and the use of
language patterns during the conversational intervention?

Educational outcomes:
- Learn the use of metaphors during the conversational hypnotic intervention.
- Understand the use of language patterns to achieve revealing insights.
