DUAL INDUCTIONS USING FAMILY MEMBERS AS COTHERAPISTS

Many family interactions can be described as powerful hypnotic inductions. A hypnotherapist can utilize these same patterns as a basis for naturally occurring inductions at opportune moments in family interviews, e.g., during simultaneous speech by several family members. Parents, partners, and siblings can be enlisted as cotherapists in overlapping dual inductions. The indirection of “my friend John” techniques can be engaged while working with the identified patient. A presentation on theory will be augmented by videotaped case examples. Participants will experience guided practice in dual inductions tailored for family therapy applications.
