With a plugged-in 24/7 cyberspace that demands and creates instantaneous response to internet and social networking, many young people have difficulty understanding self-regulation and present a lack of selfawareness and modulation. This workshop proposes a tailored strategic approach toward utilizing the natural creativity and novelty that young people have embedded in their development make-up but often have limited access toward using their inner resources. Experiential and specific ways to elicit responsiveness and enhance “down regulation” will be explored.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Apply induction tailored for this age group.
  2. Utilize client resistance as a gateway for creativity.
  3. Plan and implement internal and external post hypnotic cues for therapeutic goals.
