The Role of Relationship Building in Palliative Care: Utilization in Service of Healing When Cure is Not Possible
Dr. Handel will provide this hands-on, skills-based workshop for advanced level participants interested in utilizing relationship to support patients with advancing, incurable, or terminal disease while training in hypnotic pain or symptom management strategies. Emphasis on language-based re-interpretations adds depth and specificity to selection of specific suggestions to speed responsiveness in therapy. In palliative care, opportunities are often short in duration and filled with need and a sense of urgency. A focus on ?just in time? suggestions, offered in naturalistic style, will be modeled in order to maximize opportunities for therapeutic suggestions during clinical encounters while also fostering hope, building trustful relationships, and encouraging positive reframes as possible.
This session will include didactic presentation, coupled with small group practice and script building exercises. Video presentations and demonstrations will be utilized to show specific techniques or
examples of approaches. This session is intended to exemplify and expand on the conference themes of clinical utilization and the role of relationship in facilitating healing experience.
