PROCESS, PRACTICE, AND MAGIC – CONTINUING THE EXPERIENTIAL APPROACH OF CARL WHITAKER EXPLORES AND CONTRASTS TODAY’S “EMPIRE OF OVERREGULATION” IN THE FIELD OF PSYCHOTHERAPY TO A WHITAKER PARADIGM.

As a case for re-humanizing family therapy, as opposed to numbly accepting its soulless “medicalization” in the name of safety and profitability, author David Keith scrutinizes an interview conducted more than 35 years ago by Carl Whitaker and highlights why Whitaker’s unconventional ways worked. Bravely challenging the status quo, Keith rallies for renewed freedom of language and developing a therapeutic Self, and explains how spending time with a “Crazyman” can be good for all concerned. → Read more

 CALLING FOR THERAPEUTIC PERFORMANCE RATHER THAN RELIANCE ON THEORY, CREATIVE THERAPEUTIC TECHNIQUES PROVIDES THERAPISTS WITH INNOVATIVE WAYS TO BRING FORTH CHANGE 

In a practical how-to guide, the dynamic duo of Hillary and Brad Keeney gives therapists tools to get unstuck in dead-end sessions by using fresh techniques. 

PHOENIX, Ariz. – April 15, 2013 – Comparing psychotherapy sessions to theater or film, where there are plotlines, storyboards, and an actual beginning, middle and end, Hillary and Brad Keeney encourage therapists to think of themselves more as actors who are required to perform first and gain understanding later. The Keeney’s believe that doing so allows therapists to focus more on movement and change rather than being trapped in the typical problem/solution world. Exercises are offered as well as case examples so that therapists can creatively reframe impoverished sessions and transport clients from a problem-focused life to a life of infinite possibilities. One exercise has therapists starting at the end with a client, requiring them to “act in order to know how to act next” and put aside any habitual over-reliance on the client’s background information. → Read more

 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. → Read more

AUTHOR OF THE BREAKOUT HEURISTIC EXPANDS ON NEUROSCIENCE RESEARCH AND PRESENTS TOOLS FOR PSYCHOTHERAPISTS TO CREATE A NEW CONSCIOUSNESS 

Dr. Ernest Rossi’s latest book for creating consciousness documents how behavioral science professionals can better facilitate health and mind-body healing by creating a new consciousness through wonder, wisdom, truth, and beauty.

PHOENIX, Ariz. – March 15, 2012 — Over the last half-century, the work of Ernest Lawrence Rossi Ph.D. has had a tremendous impact on the field of behavioral science. In his 2007 book, The Breakout Heuristic, a compilation of four decades of his most important articles and papers, Rossi presented his four-stage model of change. It encompasses in-depth brain research, the study of the function of dreams as a precursor to psychic growth, the epiphanies of therapeutic hypnosis, and the use of art, beauty, and truth in human relationships to create a new consciousness. Throughout Rossi’s work it is evident that humans are constantly changing with their environment and through the process of self-reflection. As a student, colleague, and friend of the late Dr. Milton H. Erickson, who was his mentor for a decade and with whom he co-authored several books, Rossi continues to explore body-mind research and hypnosis and gain news insights on how psychotherapists can make an impact. → Read more

ENDORSEMENTS FOR CIRCULAR THERAPEUTICS

“This fantastic book is a much-needed contribution capable of transforming the entire thinking and practice of therapy! Our profession is headed toward “scientific delirium madness” if we do not embrace what the Keeney’s tell us about finding the healing heart of therapy.  They teach us how to bring transformational creative magic – authentic mojo – into every therapy session.  Bravo!”

Stephen R. Lankton, LCSW, DAHB Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis and author of clinical books including The Answer Within, Practical Magic, and Tools of Intention. → Read more
