The focus will be on the cognitive-behavioral treatment of adults with affective disorders (anxiety, depression, anger). Such treatment procedures as cognitive restructuring, problem-solving and stress inoculation training will be demonstrated.
In this workshop participants will learn a new method of brief therapy techniques to cure anxiety and panic disorder, inspired by material and attitudes learned from Dr. Erickson's work. This advanced approach uses pacing, reframing, utilization, conversational trance and Erickson's style of form-fitting treatment for each patient.
Neurofeedback allows us to retrain brainwave patterns associated with problems of depression, substance abuse, ADD/ADHD, learning disabilities, anxiety and panic disorder, insomnia, headaches, migraines, head injuries, stroke, Tourette's, epilepsy, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, PTSD, enuresis and physical balance. Neurofeedback is also used in peak performance training and countering cognitive decline with aging. Integrating hypnosis with neurofeedback is ideal for treating many of these problems. A live demonstration will be included.
Traditional therapy presumes that treating anxiety produces healthier sleep without specific intervention. By shifting therapy to focusing on sleep first via collaborating on comforting bedtime stories, clients can rapidly acquire self-hypnosis skills for their present and future. This strategic process focuses on sleeplessness first by reframing the client's anxiety metaphorically, utilizing the client's strengths and recalling natural sleep rhythms.
In this age where we need to treat people quickly, we have found that adding hypnosis and NLP can be a vital tool in helping clients to make quick and lasting change. In this interactive workshop, participants will learn powerful techniques to create change in themselves and their clients. Participants will learn how to quickly break through limiting beliefs, treat clients who have panic or stress and will learn a self-hypnotic exercise.
Metaphor, energetic bodywork, imagery and hypnotic techniques share a powerful complementary relationship. Our state of mind can dramatically influence our health and creative potential. This workshop will introduce participants to the human energy field and specific energy-based healing techniques which when combined with metaphor and imagery, can help replenish the mind and the body as well as manage a wide variety of symptoms including chronic pain, anxiety, depression and PTSD.
Self-esteem, self-confidence and self-concept are closely connected with the development of human identity. The enhancement of self-esteem and identity formation can be used effectively in psychotherapy with children, especially in the treatment of anxiety disorders, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and many other social difficulties. Hypnotic interventions proved to be effective in working with children and adolescents on an individual basis.
We will begin by studying how all anxiety disorders generate an absolute standard for certainty and com-fort, thus manipulating people into worry. You will learn specific skills within the three targets of treatment for both worry and GAD: physiological, cognitive, and behavioral. Then we will explore strategies for panic, social anxiety, phobias and OCD, helping clients find the courage and motivation to challenge their old beliefs and attitudes. Cutting-edge treatment now pushes further into the confrontational. You will learn how to help clients purposely seek out anxiety as their ticket to freedom from crippling fear.
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.
