    The Clinical Hypnosis Society of New Jersey is proud to present, via Zoom, the fifth in our Clinical Conversation Series titled, “Six Core Competencies of Ericksonian Therapy”

    The Core Competencies of Ericksonian Therapy, spearheaded by Dr. Dan Short, consists of a series of foundational principles for practitioners seeking mastery in Ericksonian therapy with the goal of providing the knowledge and skill sets to become an outstanding Ericksonian therapist. During this series, each program will include a viewing of one of the Core Competencies followed by an interactive dialogue by our faculty and participants. 
    This program will take place on the dates below from 11am-1pm:

             Saturday January 9th:  PAST
    Competency I: Tailoring- “A readiness to individual treatment” 

    This program discussed tailoring treatment plans to the individual with whom you are working by using observation and flexibility with immediate knowledge of the client to guide intervention, rather than theoretical knowledge derived from a diagnosis. 

              Sunday February 21st PAST
    Competency II: Utilization- “A readiness to utilize intrapersonal and interpersonal dynamics as well as situational factors.”

    This program will deepen the concept of utilization, considered to be one of Erikson’s greatest contributions to psychotherapy.  Utilization is a strategy that allows the practitioner to become “response ready” which results in the reduction of conflict, enhancing and resulting in meaningful outcomes. 

             Sunday March 21st   PAST

    Competency III: Strategic- “A readiness to create a self-organized problem-solving context.”

    This program will explain the concept of “self-agency”, an assumption that all individuals are purposeful organisms oriented towards survival and growth with an innate need for mastery of internal and external life experiences. 

             Saturday April 10th  PAST
    Competency IV: Destabilization- “A readiness to disrupt stable psychological patterns to encourage flexibility and learning.”

    This program explains the idea that any system that is too rigid is characterized by repetitive patterns that inhibit adaptation. Erikson believed that learning new patterns of thought and behavior required a temporary period of destabilization. 

     Saturday May 22nd PAST

    Competency V: Experiential- “A readiness to prioritize open-ended experiential learning.” with Dr. Jeffrey Zeig

    This program touches on experiential learning, the process of learning through experience, or learning through reflection on doing. Rather than the therapist being seen as the expert on the client’s experience, clients are viewed as experts on their own experience and therapy is meant to be a discovery-oriented process.

          Sunday June 27th NEXT

    Competency VI:  Naturalistic- “A readiness to create the expectation that change will occur naturally and automatically.”

    This program will explore the idea that during therapy people should be given the freedom to respond in a way that corresponds with natural growth, learning, and healing.
