Participation au congrès international d’hypnose en août 2018 avec deux conférences en anglais.

1° conférence :
How to deal with resistant patients (psychotherapeutic faillures) : A methodology of change using hypnosis.
                                     Par Daniel Radoux, Ph.D., Belgique

The specific attitudes of resistant patients have already been discussed by Dr Milton Erickson in his time. Such patients need to be respected. However, in the psychotherapeutic process, they can be a source of “psychotherapeutic failure.” This abstract and conference deal with such “resistant patients.”

What to do with the patients who have taken what I call here the “path of the battler…”? This means: these patients who have visited “a certain number” of psychologists, psychotherapists, psychoanalysts, and other psycho…, and despite this, they are still confronted with their problems, in other words, few changes occurred in their daily lives. They are feeling lost, and they are looking for a “savior” who can help them to find at least a solution to their problems and/or life difficulties.

This methodology of change has been developed to address these “resistant” subjects. The goal is to bypass a number of resistant phenomena, to activate their unconscious mind in order to find “the best solutions” and to help the patient get rid of their psychological (and also somatic) symptoms.

A study of 300 “resistant subjects” (data per outcome) will be presented using hypnosis as the main tool (as well as others…). The results will be analyzed. This study shows that, even after 5, 10 or 20 years of various psychotherapeutic approaches with few results, these “resistant patients” can finally see the end of the tunnel. It’s not a “magic wand,”; they just roll up their sleeves and get to work. Statistic data will be given.


2° conférence :
Biological sense of psychological and somatic symptoms : A new paradigm emerging.
                                     Par Daniel Radoux, Ph.D., Belgique

Recently, some new psychosomatic models appear giving a biological sense (a specific meaning) for each psychological sign and especially for each somatic symptom in a body. It is based on a link between the mind and the body, and the mind can influence the body. In other words, behind the symptoms, the patient experiences some specific conflicts, which can be somatized in their bodies, thus inducing some symptoms. It is also considered that mental processes can act as a major factor affecting medical outcomes. With this new approach, the patients can understand why they develop their symptoms, and specifically, they can get rid of them.

This new way of thinking is also based on the concept that it is the unconscious part of the subject that has implemented the specific solution (the disease symptoms): of course, we are speaking of an “archaic solution.” It is obvious the patients are not very happy with these solutions (their illness!). The medical system uses drugs to solve this issue, regardless of what underlies the symptoms: the biological sense. Most of the time, it works pretty well, and in other situations, it is more complicated. Psychotherapy can help the patients to understand what happened in their mind and what to do to return to health.

With this new point of view of the symptom, we can help the patients understand why their unconscious has selected these “archaic solutions.” However, it is not enough. The next step is to activate the patients’ unconscious and help them implement new solutions (the “best solution” model).

Using this model in my daily practice, I realized that, often, the patients have great difficulty finding new solutions to their conflicts, and these “archaic solutions.” The difficulty is the “releasing” of their conflicts (the “lâcher prise” in French).

A new methodology of change, using hypnosis and other tools, has been developed in connection with new discoveries in neurosciences. This methodology is based on the neuro-functional biology of the patient’s brain. Some examples will be discussed during the conference.
