With a plugged-in 24/7 cyberspace that demands instantaneous response of internet and social networking, many young people have difficulty with self-regulation and modulation.  This workshop proposes a tailored strategic approach toward utilizing the natural creativity and novelty that young people have embedded in their developmental make-up to combat this impulsivity or limited access to inner resources.  Experiential and specific ways to elicit responsiveness will be explored.

Educational Objectives:

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