BT10 Workshop 39 - Brief Therapy for the Treatment of Anxious Children - Lynn Lyons, LICSW
Anxious children, and often their parents, engage in predictable cognitive processes and coping strategies that create a cycle of avoidance, social isolation, and depression. This workshop will identify these common patterns, and focus on the development of interventions that help shift the anxious family toward flexibility, creativity, and the tolerance of uncertainty.
BT10 Workshop 45 - Using Hypnosis with Children and Their Parents - Lynn Lyons, LICSW
Hypnosis harnesses the powerful imaginations of children to interrupt problematic cognitive and physical patterns. Participants will learn how to use hypnotic techniques to manage common childhood problems, such as phobias, sleep issues, school/test anxiety, and fear of medical treatment. How to include parents as subjects and hypnosis “assistants” will be addressed.
