Often students use hypnosis as a context for creating a safe or comfortable state of mind, suggesting away symptoms, or uncomplicated ego-strengthening by bolstering encouragement. This is little more than psycho-education done in trance. But hypnosis offers opportunities for far more therapeutic intervention. This open discussion format will help participants dig into this area and develop some expanded possibilities for therapy during hypnosis.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Formulate eco-systemic interventions when appropriate.
  2. Formulate and use experience retrieval within hypnotic interventions.
  3. Explain ideomotor feedback as a guide during interventions.
