BT12 Short Course 30 Mindfulness, Trauma, and Trance Ericksonian Brief Solutions A MindBody Approach Ronald Alexander, PhD
This course will address the rapid treatment of trauma by utilizing both Mindfulness practice and Ericksonian orientation. The course will highlight Milton Erickson’s use of storytelling, metaphor and rapid trance induction as well as the use of mindfulness practice for framing, re-framing and de-framing the immediate reorganization of transforming somatic-affective experience into new healing rhythms in the body. These methods allow the body to open healthier pathways for new somatic recoveries. We will also emphasize the use of naturalistic hypnotic trance, guided mindfulness practice, and healing metaphors for generating new therapeutic skills in mindbody healing therapies.
