About the Workshops

Introduction to Clinical Hypnosis (Basic Workshop)

For hundreds of years, hypnosis has been a powerful tool that has allowed medical and psychological providers a means to assist their patients or clients. This course follows established Standards of Training to provide students with a basic background and understanding to begin using hypnosis within the context of their own scope of practice.

In addition to reviewing a brief history of hypnosis, this course will introduce students to the steps to facilitate a hypnotic state along with various types of suggestions for positive therapeutic change. Emphasis will be placed on how to integrate these skills into clinical practice or apply to research models.

This workshop will include live demonstrations, videos, PowerPoint lectures and supervised hands-on practice of hypnotic inductions, deepening techniques, suggestions and re-alerting. Each student will have the opportunity to hypnotize and to be hypnotized in the classroom setting.

Power Tools for Anxiety and Affect Regulation: Integration of Hypnosis, Cognitive-Behavioral and Mindfulness Interventions in Clinical Hypnosis

Mastery and maintenance of affect regulation are often impeded by an individual’s habitual knee-jerk response to frustration, perceived threats, or environmental stressors. This workshop focuses on what affect dysregulation is, how it affects our clients and their relationships, and how it can be controlled through self-regulation tools. In addition, the workshop will have a specific focus on anxiety as a sub-set of affect dysregulation.

With the right tools, therapists can help reactive clients stay calm in stressful situations. With the right tools, clients who stress out can learn to tone down or tune out their stressors. This workshop offers an affect regulation toolbox of techniques that incorporate hypnosis, cognitive behavioral approaches, and mindfulness. Therapists can dip into this all-purpose toolbox for interventions that can help clients manage their emotions, soften their anxiety, and navigate conflicted relationships with spouses, adult children, and co-workers.

This workshop also introduces the groundbreaking STOP Solution for calming emotional flooding. The STOP Solution provides a methodical protocol of easy-to-use tools that can be applied when clients experience anxiety or other difficult-to-manage emotions. The tools based on hypnosis, mindfulness and cognitive behavioral approaches have specific and individualized applicability to the most commonly experienced triggers.
