Share Guided Imagery for Pain and Insomnia

Event Details

Pain and insomnia are two of the most common complaints heard by healthcare professionals. Research has shown that guided imagery, especially when blended with deep relaxation, is a very effective solution for providing relief for these conditions. The class will cover understanding the ways stress and emotional upset amplify pain signals and impair sleep. A variety of imagery approaches will be taught including exploring and dialoguing with symptoms, creating an internal sleep dome, glove anesthesia, and the “internal pharmacy.” Distinctions will be made between working with chronic vs. acute pain. The format will include lecture, demonstration, and observed practice. The course will be half lecture, and half experiential.

Leslie Davenport, MFT, is a pioneer in bringing guided imagery to psychotherapy and integrative medicine.  She founded the Humanities Program at Marin General Hospital, which  became the Institute for Health and Healing. She is clinical faculty at the California Pacific Medical Center and is the author of Healing and Transformation through Self-Guided Imagery.  She is on the advisory board at Five Branches University’s Mind-Body Department.
