Remember learning how to do an induction and prescribe suggestions at your first introductory workshop? Remember
practicing the order of induction-deepening-suggestion-re-alerting? Was that the best way to start learning hypnosis?
How well did it fit into practice then? How well does it now align with our evolving understanding of psychobiology?
How well does it fit with how people actually change their minds? Wouldn?t it be great to emerge from an introductory
workshop with more neurobiologically-based, client-focused skills that are usable across the spectrum of clinical
practices? Come join us to discuss and experience new models of introductory education and training in clinical
hypnosis. As described in?Reorienting Hypnosis Education? (AJCH, 59(3)), we will engage in experiential learning of
newly proposed basic skills through the lenses of new learning foci intended to drive the psychophysiological plasticity
that helps people change their minds in therapy. Together we will discuss and explore how to make clinical hypnosis
education more relevant, practical and accessible. Like first learning to walk, draw and sing, hypnosis rests on the
pursuit of the novelty, curiosity and uncertainty in each moment. This workshop builds these characteristics into clinical
hypnosis training. Are you interested in changing your mind? Come play with us.
