Clients in pain yearn for sleep; comfort just out of reach. Focus first on establishing soothing sleep and encouraging nocturnal restorative functions. Treating remaining pain stays in the day’s domain. Hypnosis enlists the mind and body’s natural processes, restoring healthy sleep. Strategic protocols combine physiology of sleep and pain management with the client’s own experience. These are further reinforced by self-hypnosis techniques. Program includes demonstration, application of trance script protocols, and case study discussion. With Deborah Beckman.

The second transforms psychomotor agitation to a self-soothing rhythmic brain input that enables individuals to “get in touch with the wealth of life experience at their fingertips”.

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.
Working at the Department of Speech Pathology, University Clinic, Heidelberg Germany in the 80's, most patients with voice disorders came with expectations getting medical treatment. But resistance to psychological approaches were com-mon. Being confronted with this resistance many times cre-ated a very indirect approach of self-hypnosis training (which actually is a trance induction). Tailoring the standard approach to different patients and symptoms will be discussed, as well as how to use this in group therapy.
In this workshop, we will adopt a positive approach and focus on aspects that are part of the FLOURISH model: Flow, Utilization, Resilience, Imagery to stimulate high levels of pleasure and satisfaction. These aspects can be developed with self-hypnosis exercises. Neurobiological aspects will be reviewed and impact of the flourish model on development. In practical exercises you can discover how to work out your own “petals of satisfaction.”
This short course will introduce a treatment approach that targets the affective dimension of pain. The emotion specific wording and elicitation of positive state dependent learning can be used in a brief therapy approach whether or not patients' feelings of anger, sadness, or anxiety are associated with physical pain.
