In the brief treatment of trauma, using hypnosis, not only amplifies the benefits, it also shortens the treatment time. Creating just the right metaphor, choosing the best language patterns, and using the patient’s ( as well as the therapist's) own resources can intensify and direct the deep desire for healing far more quickly than traditional therapy ever could. Tapping into their mutual personal power, enables the intervention. A demonstration of anchoring resources will be part of this short course.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Learn specific hypnotic patterns, individually designed to provide the maximum benefit for each patient.
  2. Identify the patient’s own language patterns which can then be used to enhance the hypnotic experience.
  3. Learn the value of using their own resources to elicit the patient’s resources.
