Participants in this workshop will explore ways to apply the understanding of attachment, trauma, brain and mind in diagnosing and treating relationship problems. A goal of the treatment is to accelerate the access to emotions in the more withdrawn partner, leading to more open communication between partners. Lecture, discussion and videotape demonstration will clarify how traumas of early disturbed bonding experiences can be seen and treated in a conjoint session.
Guide your patients in self-relational, self-hypnotic intra-body conversations to self-manage their chronic pain and suffering. Patients will learn to compassionately listen to pain signals as distinct from self and body, and to proactively respond in self-supportive and soothing ways. The process is also effective for affect and anxiety management.
This course will present concrete tools and methods of hypnosis to help couples end their habitual conflict escalation. Participants will learn the impact of affect dysregulation on relationships, client-friendly tools to enhance intimacy and connection, and how to rehearse and transfer skills from therapy to real life
