Healing in the Space Between The Words; Exploring the intersection of Hypnosis, Neurobiology, Quantum Physics, Ego State Therapy and Brainspotting – Dr. Susan Pinco, PhD, LCSW

Healing in the Space Between The Words; Exploring the intersection of Hypnosis, Neurobiology, Quantum Physics, Ego State Therapy and Brainspotting

October 13 & 14, 2022 or Dec 8 & 9, 2022 or Feb 2 & 3, 2023 – 
Time: Day 1: 9am-6pm; Day 2: 9am-1 ET

This seminar will focus on the fertile ground of structured silence; helping you understand why it is not the talking that cures but rather those experiential moments when something deep inside our clients shifts, leading to transformation and healing. Attendees will be encouraged to rethink their relationship to the space between words and to develop techniques that enhance their own palette and that of their clients; amplifying effectiveness both in and between sessions. The material will be presented with both lecture, case examples and experiential exercises.

Seminar Overview

Ericksonian Hypnosis, NLP, AEDP and Social Psychology teach us the importance of meta-communication and the power of tone, tempo, and numerous other para-verbal elements.  This seminar will focus on a particular element of meta-communication; silence. Silence as it occurs within the context of speech and within context of our sessions.  In attending this seminar, participants will experience new ways of thinking about, eliciting and utilizing silence drawing from elements of Ericksonian Hypnosis, Brainspotting, Ego State Therapy, mindfulness, quantum physics, interpersonal neurobiology, and somatically oriented therapies.

This seminar is intended for intermediate clinicians, and those individuals who have completed at least some training in either Ericksonian Hypnosis, Brainspotting Phase 1, IFS or Ego State Therapy. Should you feel that despite not having completed one of these trainings you still want to attend, please reach out to me so that we can discuss if this training will be appropriate for you. 

Teaching Objectives

  1. Attendees will be able to differentiate between structured and unstructured silence and demonstrate two ways to utilize both structured silence within the context of Clinical Sessions.
  2. Attendees will expand their understanding of how silence can be used to promote relationship both between therapist and client and within the client system (ie: between ego states).
  3. Attendees will be able to identify the techniques that can be utilized to facilitate accelerated healing and articulate why they are effective.

We hope that you will join us and learn more about how work with individual of all ages who are struggling with attachment trauma and/or complex trauma as well as individuals whose Ego States may be find change difficult.
