Advanced Workshop Topic:

Hypnosis for Treatment of Trauma, Attachment, and Dissociation

The incidence of trauma and neglect is very high across a wide range of mental disorders presenting for counseling and psychotherapy. In addition to the trauma-specific conditions of PTSD and dissociation, childhood abuse, neglect, and parental dysfunction, as well as adult experiences of intimate partner violence and combat often underlie or contribute to depression, anxiety, substance abuse, eating disorders, interpersonal difficulties, and personality disorders.

This workshop will present a phase-oriented approach to the treatment of trauma, neglect, attachment, and dissociation, with an emphasis on instilling the necessary client capacities to process and resolve adverse childhood and other trauma-related experiences effectively.  In addition, it will provide sufficient information for participants new to the advanced workshops as well as more senior practitioners looking for specialized training in trauma, attachment, and dissociative disorder applications.

Learning Objectives:  At the end of this workshop, you will be able to describe:

  • The three components of the phase-oriented treatment of trauma and dissociation.
  • The Poly-Vagal Theory and state its relevance to establishing a neurophysiological substrate for trauma processing and attachment repair.
  • The importance of prioritizing neglect repair and related implicit memory modification hypnotic strategies.
  • Tour dissociative disorders and an introduction to a phase-oriented approach to treating them.
  • And apply an empowering approach to trauma resolution integrating selected DBT techniques with clinical hypnosis.

Clinical Workshop Level 1
Why pursue training in Clinical Hypnosis? What are the benefits?

The Level 1 workshop, the first part of a series of workshops in the certification program for clinical hypnosis, is intended for licensed health professionals including physicians, nurses, psychologists, dentists, counselors, social workers, and those in related fields. A diverse faculty from a range of health disciplines will teach the principles and process of hypnotic inductions, suggestions, and treatment. The workshop is a mix of didactic presentations, demonstrations, experiential exercises, and faculty-led small group practice tailored to the specific needs and learning styles of each participant. At the conclusion of the workshop participants will have been taught the basic skills required to utilize clinical hypnosis and begin to apply it to their practice.

Advantages:

  • Rapidly establish rapport and the hypnotic relationship across developmental ages.
  • Facilitate change, ego-strengthen, and reduce impediments to change.
  • Cost-effective, collaborative, person-centered treatment.
  • Empower clients and patients to build skills for better health.
  • Learn a highly creative, broad-ranging technique for use in integrative medicine.

Clinical Workshop Level 2
What are the advantages of more training in Clinical Hypnosis?  

The second step in certification training is to strengthen skills, strategies, and applications of clinical hypnosis. Part one taught “how to” do clinical hypnosis, and part two builds on this skill set and refines and furthers development to 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; Anxiety and Sleep Disorders; Habit Disorders).
  • 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).
  • More practice with the feedback of expert faculty.

The Level 2 workshop increases skills and builds confidence in the use of hypnosis. It prepares the workshop participant 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.
