Hypnosis, Clinical

47th Annual Workshops in Clinical Hypnosis Fundamentals and Advanced Sections 
June 7 - 9, 2018
Location: Crowne Plaza Minneapolis West
3131 Campus Drive | Plymouth, MN 55441

The Fundamentals Workshop offers responsive instruction in the theory and applications of hypnosis in a clinical setting. There is a mix of lectures, demonstrations, exercises and small group practice with supervision and feedback. Instructors systematically teach to the learning styles and needs of participants. Course content is organized in a spiral curriculum (conforming to the standards of training of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis) with topics presented several times. Succeeding iterations of a technique, such as hypnotic induction (initiation), are more complex, increasing participants’ knowledge and skills. After the skill basics, application topics include therapeutic communication, treatment planning, and self-hypnosis. Participants will choose sessions on the practice of hypnosis in their own medical, mental health, or professional specialization. It is estimated to be 20-24 hours of instruction and to be approved in advance by the American Society of Hypnosis (ASCH) as meeting criteria for Certification in Hypnosis by ASCH

Advanced Workshop - There are many unique benefits of hypnosis available to its practitioners. This 2-day workshop will explore those benefits and specifically 3 variables that can contribute positively to the application of clinical hypnosis skills in psychotherapy and the treatment of trauma. Maintaining a developmental perspective, awareness of multi-cultural identities and an understanding of the influences of gender in the hypnotic relationship can enhance treatment outcomes. The workshop will provide a mix of the didactic and the experiential guiding the participants through their own and clients’ lifespan, trauma and gender journeys.

Audience: This conference is ideal for persons holding a Doctoral Degree in Medicine, Dentistry, or Psychology; persons holding a Master’s Degree in Social Work, Marriage and Family Counseling, or Clinical or Counseling Psychology who are licensed by the state/province in which they practice; a Registered Nurse with advanced sub-specialty training and certification or a Master’s Degree; or a student actively enrolled in a graduate program leading to a degree in any of the foregoing. Other Master’s level, licensed health professionals (e.g., Occupational and Physical Therapists, Speech and Language Pathologists, et. al.) are welcome and encouraged to attend.
