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”.
- 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.
This workshop expands the participants' skill set and builds greater confidence in the use of hypnosis. It prepares the participant to move on to Advanced (Skills) Workshops and Individual Consultation to build a greater understanding of principles and advance one’s skill level.
Hypnosis and Zen Buddhism for Pain and Suffering
This 18-hour workshop will focus on hypnosis and a mindfulness intervention based on Zen Buddhism as intervention to manage pain and suffering. Much of this will be based on the presenters APA publication Hypnosis for Pain Control that will come out in a largely new form as a second edition in 2024. The workshop will cycle through lectures on theory, demonstrations and then practice in brief exercises in dyad form. The presenter uses a technique to teach hypnotic inductions in which they are broken down into a chain of concepts, and practiced, before entire inductions are presented.
We will cover the psychology of chronic pain and suffering, brief and rapid inductions to control acute pains, complex/nonlinear inductions based on Erickson and Motivational Interviewing approaches, and finally a technique to integrate hypnosis and mindfulness based on the neurophysiology of consciousness. The theory and intervention will be based on current science throughout the workshop.
At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Describe the psychological and neurological factors inherent in pain processing.
- Perform a quick direct hypnotic induction that can be used for acute pain in the ER and other emergency medical situations.
- Articulate the theory that is involved in the components of complex, non-linear inductions.
- Do an assessment of a patient with chronic pain that leads to hypnotic and other psychological interventions.
- Articulate the difference between acute and chronic pain and the severe limitations of the concept of “hypnotherapy”.
- Describe the neurophysiology of consciousness and how this can be used to teach patients a mindfulness intervention for suffering.
- (2-Hours) Didactic pain on psychological approaches to pain, the neurophysiology of pain and biopsychosocial assessment of pain.
- (2-Hours) Brief induction for acute pain that is hands on and direct (less than 15 minutes). Demonstration and practice of concepts.
- (2-Hours) Using science, Ericksonian techniques, and motivational interviewing to construct complex, non-linear inductions.
- (4-Hours) Exercise in which a patient in pain is assessed and the group comes up with a formulation for treatment.
- (4-Hours) Group practice of non-linear inductions that are intended to create growth and insight in the participants.
- (2-Hours) Neurophysiology of consciousness, meditation, psychedelics, and hypnosis.
- Question and answer and discussion.
