      Ericksonian hypnosis is more than a technique, it is the cornerstone of the practice of so-called strategic brief therapies. The handling of Ericksonian hypnosis, also called conversational hypnosis, aims above all to bring about change.

      Milton Erickson has dedicated his life to thinking about strategies for change so that his patients can be free from their problems. He quickly became interested in hypnosis and his work renewed the way of practicing hypnosis, from the second half of the 20th century . He is considered the father of brief therapies

      This interactive training for practitioners who wish to understand the tools and techniques of hypnosis as part of an interactional approach . These techniques also allow you to develop your relational skills, as a speaker, to better capture the present moment, here and now, and guide you on the path to change .


      "The techniques in hypnosis as in brief therapy are thought of as relational techniques. All of these techniques take on meaning in a dimension of interaction: the use of dissociated language, questions, metaphors, focusing on sensory feelings or on movements, therapeutic tasks, are actions that put the relationship into movement ."

      Julien Betbeze (psychiatrist, practitioner in hypnosis and brief therapies, specialist in the narrative model. Editor-in-chief of the journal Hypnose et Thérapies Brèves. Pedagogical adviser and trainer for the Hypnosis Masters at LACT).


      For students already engaged in one of the LACT training courses, the Practical of the Masters in Hypnosis includes 84 hours of additional lessons and approximately 80 hours of associated personal work. it aims to deepen the links between the different worlds of hypnosis, through the founding contributions of Milton Erickson, Salvador Minuchin, Jay Haley in current clinical practice at the service of the interactional dynamics of the individual and families

      These modules aim to acquire an approach that connects you intimately to your patient in an approach that combines rigor and intuition, voice and gaze, sensations and relationships, applied to the most common relational psychopathologies.
