Hypnotic Treatment of Chronic Pain from a Whole Person Perspective: Hypnosis
John Hall, Ph.D., ABPP; Christina L. Vair, PhD
Although clinical hypnosis can be a powerful tool in empowering individuals to address chronic pain, it is often most helpful as part of a comprehensive approach to care. The presenters, pain psychologists using clinical hypnosis in the Veterans Health Administration, will offer a model of integrated care for Veterans with chronic pain based in the VHA’s Whole Health approach. Incorporating mind, body, and spirit into the care of Veterans with chronic pain recognizes how their lives can be fulfilling despite pain. Participants will practice several techniques that they might incorporate in their own work to support individuals with chronic pain.
