Advanced Workshops

Self-Hypnosis (6 hours)
Date: TBA
Time: TBA
Cost: $200

Self-hypnosis is a powerful tool that can be used to alter affect, thoughts, behaviors and self-experience. It can be used for many issues, such as self-esteem, anxiety, phobias, medical conditions and procedures, and habit control. With self-hypnosis we can induce relaxation, do self-exploration, and strategize. This workshop will be both didactic and highly experiential. Participants will learn self-hypnotic techniques, how to design protocols, and when to train patients in self-hypnosis. We will discuss how self-hypnosis may be used for personal growth, to overcome obstacles, change behavior, to expand potential and envision new possibilities. (ASCH - 6 hrs) (6 NYS CE Hours)

Hypnosis can be an effective treatment for various medical problems, including skin disorders, gastrointestinal disorders and high blood pressure. Hypnosis is used adjunctively for people with many illnesses, such as cancer, to cope with the side effects of treatment and to deal with medical procedures. Hypnotherapy can be used for preparation for surgery, in order to maximize the individual's recovery time and to minimize pain and the need for medication. In this workshop I will address how to work with specific medical issues, preparation for surgery, and how to design protocols for the individual. It will be both didactic and experiential.
