EP20 Pre-Conference 03 - Fundamentals of Hypnosis - Michael Yapko, PhD
Original Program Date :
Length: 6 hours
This one-day preconference introductory level workshop will provide a solid conceptual and practical framework for understanding the dynamic and fascinating field of hypnosis. The emphasis will be on starting to develop some of the core skills for designing and delivering hypnotically based interventions in ways that are consistent with your chosen style of practice. Thus, this workshop will include “hands-on” experiences as well as the opportunity to observe and deconstruct a recorded clinical hypnosis demonstration session.
People learn best through experience, and hypnosis is a vehicle of focused, experiential learning. Research on the effectiveness of hypnosis highlights the fact that hypnosis enhances treatment outcomes. It is a domain of professional practice that encompasses effective and empowering approaches to psychotherapy (such as skill building, resource accessing and reframing) and behavioral medicine (such as pain management and promoting health and healing). What a privilege to work with people in this way!
