Schema Theory & Hypnosis

Schema Theory postulates the inductive establishment of unconscious infrastructures upon which we construct and organize ideas, reactions, behaviors and thought patterns. These infrastructures are built inductively by the unconscious mind and can be resistant to change. Understanding schema theory and how to encourage inductive change can help you better conceptualize the challenges your clients face and potentially choose more efficient and effective methods for helping them achieve their goals.
