Love in the face of violence:  Self-relations psychotherapy, Ericksonian hypnosis and EMDR

Description

A number of contemporary approaches to therapy converge around the principle of "life moves through you, except when it doesn't". The idea is that a procession of experiences moves through each nervous system, bringing learnings, changes, and developmental growth. If these experiences are perceived as overwhelming or threatening, a person may deliberately or automatically engage in "neuro-muscular lock", in which experience is arrested and held for later processing. If effective opportunities for processing are not present, symptoms and pathology may result. This workshop will examine a model for describing how this may happen, and will also present a model for resolving symptomatic experience. The relevance of principles and practices of Ericksonian hypnosis, Self-relations psychotherapy, and Aikido to EMDR theory and practice will be highlighted.
