This workshop describes the use of hypnosis and self-hypnosis for treating phobias and panic disorders. The patient is learning a technique via which he can treat the problem him/herself. Building hope and diminishing helplessness is essential for a successful therapy and the workshop will address different possibilities to achieve this. The workshop is explaining the self-treatment technique via case examples. Homework assignments, pattern disruption, systemic considerations and stabilizing the treatment results are further topics.
