Workshop Description:

This two-day workshop “Fundamentals of Hypnosis” is part of a special learning hybrid model that provides participants with a basic skill-set to conduct simple hypnotic interventions, along with knowledge about hypnotic concepts and approaches, and a familiarity with research-based applications of hypnosis to common medical and behavioral disorders. This workshop provides participants with an introductory level of understanding helpful for engaging in hypnosis-based clinical practice and hypnosis-oriented research in integrative health. This workshop will introduce simple trance induction protocols, trance deepening techniques, the use of post-hypnotic suggestion, and techniques to re-alert the subject and close the trance phase. In addition, the course will provide an overview of current scientific approaches to explaining hypnotic phenomena, will introduce the measurement and significance of hypnotic ability, and will discuss several of the widely used and effective approaches for utilizing hypnosis in psychotherapy, medical interventions, and personal transformation.

The course is designed to follow the Standards of Training in Clinical Hypnosis as presented by D. Corydon Hammond and Gary R. Elkins for the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis-Education and Research Foundation (2005).

This presentation will give attendees the opportunity to apply the skills taught throughout the presentation by utilizing lecture, role play, demonstration, and small group practice.
