Positive Psychology suggests a shift in focus to what’s right with people. Mindfulness suggests a shift in focus toward acceptance and being more fully present. As soon as suggestion and focal shifts are employed in treatment, the patterns of hypnosis are inevitably involved. How can hypnosis amplify the merits of Positive Psychology and Mindful Meditation? In this workshop, we will explore the roles of selective attention and unconscious processes in engaging people in experiential learning.


Educational Objectives:

  1. List and describe three core components of hypnosis in experiential methods of mindfulness.
  2. Explain how suggestion impacts the effect of hypnotic treatments.
  3. Describe and model a technique of hypnosis to access personal resources in applying Positive Psychology.
