Cognitive-Behavioral therapies enjoy considerable empirical support as effective treatments for depression. Actively teaching cognitive and behavioral skills is essential to these therapies. Hypnosis has been shown to enhance client skill acquisition and to manage common depressive symptoms. In this workshop, we will explore ways hypnosis can assist in treating depression.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To list and describe common depressive symptoms as treatment targets.
  2. To list and describe ways hypnosis can be integrated with cognitive-behavioral therapies.
