Developments from various theorists and practitioners suggest an increasing interest in the use of future time frames in hypnosis and psychotherapy. We will present the development of a position focusing on the use of the future time frame without the necessary use of formal hypnosis2. This position supposes an active, as opposed to a passive client role in the clinical interaction, and the techniques are applicable to a broader range of client population than other future oriented techniques. Thereafter, the use of this future time frame position is illustrated with case material, and potential interpretations of the case material are suggested.
