Advanced Workshops in Clinical Hypnosis - Hypnosis is for Everyone: Tailoring for Gender and Culture


There are many unique benefits of hypnosis available to its practitioners. This 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. View agenda.
