Research shows that treatment paired with hypnosis is more effective than treatment alone for many types of problems. The science and art of hypnosis is now widely recognized as a component tool for psychotherapy and has been employed successfully as a comfortable part of private practice and agency practice for years. As hypnosis spreads into the mainstream of psychotherapy, it is important to get competent information regarding its use. Lacking that, many practitioners do not make use of the advantages it provides as an adjunct to a well-rounded set of clinical skills. This workshop is intended to correct that lack of understanding and training in this important area. The rationale, indications and basic use will be explained and demonstrated with practical exercises to help convey the key language skills that are requisite.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe three areas where the use of hypnosis can benefit the common practice of psychotherapy.
  2. To describe how hypnosis in introduced in brief therapy.
