Much of the effectiveness of hypnotic communication comes from nonverbal processes. This workshop will guide participants in how to develop, sustain and use these nonverbal connections for both induction and utilization purposes. Special attention will be given to using hypnosis as a poetic language that touches, evokes and engages the felt sense of a person's meaning making process.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe the crucial importance of nonverbal communication in hypnotic psychotherapy.
  2. To name three nonverbal techniques for hypnotic communication.
