BRIDGING THE FIELDS OF PSYCHOLOGY AND SPIRITUALITY, THE DISORDERLY SOUL FOLLOWS ONE WOMAN’S JOURNEY TO HEAL CHILDHOOD WOUNDS THROUGH SYSTEMIC FAMILY CONSTELLATION WORK

Psychologist Jan Crawford’s fascinating and candid quest to find her rightful place and make peace with her family begins with opening her heart and mind to understand the connection between all that came before, and all that will come in future generations.

PHOENIX, Ariz. – April 8, 2013 – In the The Disorderly Soul, Jan Crawford first pays homage to her teacher and mentor, Bert Hellinger and to Hellinger facilitators, including Suzi Tucker and her Guided Learning in New York City. Crawford then describes constellation work in which a client may give a brief description of a family issue and participants are asked to step into a circle to play the role of a family member, person, or entity related to that issue. Through this interaction, a client may have a spiritual or emotional awakening that is different than the story they have told themselves and accepted as their fate. Their story most likely has also imprisoned them in a broken life. This was the story of Jan Crawford, and her most recent book, The Disorderly Soul, is an account of her brave journey to heal childhood wounds through the same methods she uses to heal others.

ERICKSON FOUNDATION AND SPECIAL GUESTS CELEBRATE FOUNDATION’S NEW HEADQUARTERS AT GRAND OPENING

The Milton H. Erickson Foundation honors both Dr. Erickson and donors with grand opening celebration.

 PHOENIX, Ariz. – October 8, 2012 – In celebration of its new headquarters and to honor Dr. Erickson and patrons who have donated generously, The Milton H. Erickson Foundation will hold a grand opening reception on October 11th, 4:30-6:30 p.m.

Incorporated more than 30 years ago, the Erickson Foundation was established to promote and advance the contributions made to the health sciences by the late Milton H. Erickson, M.D. (1901-1980) who was a seminal force and pioneer in psychiatry and psychotherapy. Dr. Erickson lived and worked in Phoenix for many years and was the archetypical Wounded Healer who was stricken with polio at an early age and then suffered post-polio syndrome in his mid-fifties. However, he rose above his maladies to heal many with physical and mental pain. Dr. Erickson has been called “the father of hypnosis” and is best known for his use of hypnosis and utilization. He believed in the power of the subconscious and maintained that it was always positive, creative, and solution-generated. He also used an approach he coined as “Brief Therapy,” in which therapeutic changes could be made in relatively short sessions.

 GROUNDBREAKING “CIRCULAR THERAPEUTICS” AIMS TO CONNECT MODERN DAY THERAPY WITH COLLECTIVE WISDOM IN TRADITIONAL HEALING

Internationally-recognized as elder healers, psychotherapists and authors, Brad and Hillary Keeney, also known as “The Mojo Doctors,” invite therapists to open their hearts and journey back in time to discover ancient and spiritual forms of healing.

PHOENIX, Ariz. – March 16, 2012 – In their most recent book, Circular Therapeutics, Brad and Hillary Keeney encourage therapists to let go and free themselves from the “imprisonment of any and all models of therapy” and instead become wisdom-based practitioners with healing hearts. Through circular therapeutics, utilization, and improvisation, the Keeneys demonstrate how diverse wisdom traditions can positively impact clinical practice and offer help in restoring one’s “mojo” (a metaphor for the heart of healing –inner resources, gifts and wisdom) to revitalize the therapeutic process. Although written to influence behavioral health professionals, Circular Therapeutics is entertaining, refreshing light and readable and appeals to a wide audience including those who have an interest in traditional healing and cybernetics.
