What are the advantages of more training in Clinical Hypnosis?

The second step in certification training is to strengthen your skills, strategies and applications of clinical hypnosis. Part one taught you “how to” do clinical hypnosis, and part two builds on this skill set and refines and furthers your development so you add the when, why and where to the “how to”.

Advantages:

  • Introduction to a wider range of topics on the utility of clinical hypnosis (e.g., Pain Management; Irritable Bowel Syndrome; Anxiety and Sleep Disorders; Habit Disorders; Dissociative Identify Disorder); 
  • Learn more techniques for the creative use of the language of suggestion to facilitate change;
  • Learn specific tools (complex inductions and intensification techniques) for specific populations (children; procedural hypnosis; PTSD); and 
  • More practice with the feedback of expert faculty.

The Refining Skills and Treatment Applications (Intermediate) Workshop increases your skills and builds confidence in your use of hypnosis. It prepares you to move on to the Advanced Workshop level and Individual Consultation with a strong basis of skills and understanding of the principles and practice of clinical hypnosis.
