Description: This workshop offers responsive instruction in the theory and applications of hypnosis in a clinical setting. There is a mix of lectures, demonstrations, exercises and small group practice with supervision and feedback. Instructors systematically teach to the learning styles and needs of participants. Course content is organized in a spiral curriculum (conforming to the standards of training of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis) with topics presented several times.
Succeeding iterations of a technique, such as hypnotic induction (initiation), are more complex, increasing participants' knowledge and skills. After the skill basics, application topics include therapeutic communication, treatment planning, self-hypnosis, and hypnosis with children. Participants will choose sessions on the practice of hypnosis in their own medical, mental health, or professional specialization. It is estimated to be 20-24 hours of instruction and to be approved in advance by the American Society of Hypnosis (ASCH) as meeting criteria for Certification in Hypnosis by ASCH.
Eligibility and target audience:This conference is ideal for persons holding a Doctoral Degree in Medicine, Dentistry, or Psychology; persons holding a Master's Degree in Social Work, Marriage and Family Counseling, or Clinical or Counseling Psychology who are licensed by the state/province in which they practice; a Registered Nurse with advanced subspecialty training and certification or a Master's Degree; or a student actively enrolled in a graduate program leading to a degree in any of the foregoing.
