The workshop will describe hypnotic interventions that can be used with children and adolescents with medical or
psychological challenges. Hypnosis not only gives the child a tool to better cope with or solve the problem himself, but
also increases self-esteem, bolsters a sense of accomplishment and gives the child a valuable skill that he can adapt to
many new situations throughout life. How to match hypnotic strategies to the developmental level of the child will be
illustrated by using video clips. The principles and practice of integrating hypnosis into clinical encounters in child and
adolescent healthcare for a variety of common pediatric habit disorders, anxiety and pain will be presented.
