Social psychologists have produced a vast body of research on priming—the powerful, largely unconscious process by which both words and nonverbal clues can be used to change another person’s behavior and state of mind. This workshop will explore the range of ways therapists can use the practice of priming to embed suggestions, guide the therapeutic dialogue, help clients break bad habits, and move more effectively toward desired goals. You’ll discover how to:
- Apply the principles of semantic priming in your practice and better harness the power of the subconscious mind
- Resolve clinical impasses by using priming techniques to avert resistance, seed goals, and create therapeutic movement
- Pace and lead a session with an embedded prime to present new ideas in the most acceptable manner
- Break negative habits and enhance clients’ progress toward their goals through the direct application of priming as a technique
