Hypnosis For Clinical Applications & Self-Care
Have you ever been hypnotized before? Contrary to popular belief, the participant being hypnotized is in FULL CONTROL of what's happening and is not simply obeying the hypnotist. You may be more familiar with “Stage hypnosis," which has the purpose to entertain an audience but did you know that clinical hypnosis is a practical and evidence-based technique for the management of stress, anxiety, pain, apprehensions, phobias, fatigue and various persistent health conditions? Hypnosis is also a powerful tool that can create lasting behaviour changes.
In this webinar you will learn:
- What the evidence says about hypnosis and the management of stress, anxiety, apprehensions, acute and persistent pain conditions (including pre and post-surgical pain, irritable bowel syndrome, and more), dental phobia and dental pain, paediatric pain and more.
- Discover the myths and facts about hypnosis.
- Understand how hypnosis is similar and different from meditation. Learn how both techniques may be combined or complement one another in therapy and self-practice.
- Learn what is the difference between your unconscious and conscious minds and how hypnosis taps into your unconscious mind and unlocks its vast potential.
- Learn the benefits and applications of hypnosis in rehabilitation and medical practices (including dentistry, surgical procedures, etc.) and how we can add these techniques to our toolbox when providing telehealth/virtual care.
- Understand how hypnosis empowers participants to take control of their own health and manage their own symptoms from a top-down approach (relaxing their minds, calming their nervous systems, and reconnecting their minds and their bodies).
- Learn how hypnosis can be used as a self-care technique to manage stress and prevent burnout or compassion fatigue. With COVID-19, almost everyone can benefit from more self-care and stress-relieving strategies!
- How you can learn to do self-hypnosis or learn to deliver hypnosis as adjunctive therapy in your clinical practice.
