Cognitive therapy was originally developed for the treatment of Depression and Anxiety. Since its early beginnings various clinicians and investigators have extended its use to a wide variety of disorders and populations. Systematic outcome studies have demonstrated its efficacy not only in the garden variety of disorders such as Depression, Anxiety and Panic but also in medical disorders such a low back pain, diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome and chronic hypertension.
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.
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.
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.
