It is essential to know something of the deep and complicated background of all gay men, including the myriad consequences of growing up a minority even in one’s own family, in which self-identity takes shape when there is no mirror. In this workshop, you will be introduced to powerful strategies for enhancing and increasing sensory awareness, and for creating resources for restoring connections within. Such connections provide a bridge between the self and body, something that is often disowned by gay men. Internal unification provides healing from old wounds creating a shift to internal happiness. These beneficial therapeutic processes indirectly address unresolved issues that may not even be in patients’ awareness. Addressing this provides integrative healing to clients, offering possibilities for a profound sense of happiness in new ways.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Define why hypnosis is a preferred treatment modality for gay men.
  2. Utilize at least three successful hypnosis scripts with gay men.
  3. Learn how to best interact with gay clients to enhance the outcomes of hypnosis.
