Description

In this two day workshop, we will consider the role that hypnosis can play in a relationally attuned therapeutic relationship towards facilitating attachment repair in patients with developmental arrests in self-regulation and identity formation. The relational and psychological functions of attunement, representation, and mentalization are essential components of a secure attachment experience.  The presenter will review the literature and describe how hypnosis can be applied in working with each of these areas of attachment.  In its’ utilization of shared attention, tone of voice, pacing, language, and imagery, clinical hypnosis as a state, relationship, and technique offers psychotherapists a way of introducing a healthy attachment experience and renewing appropriate developmental functioning in these patients.  Through a mixture of didactic and experiential approaches, participants will develop increased competency in (1) understanding how the therapeutic relationship in general, and clinical hypnosis from an attachment frame in particular, can be utilized to re-build developmental structure and re-engage reflective functioning and (2) utilizing specific applications of clinical hypnosis towards this aim.
