    The CSCH-OD Fundamentals of Clinical Hypnosis Workshop provides clinical training in both the theory and application of hypnosis in the clinical practice of medicine and psychotherapy for those who have never practiced hypnosis. Based on evidence-based best practices, the workshop uses a combined format of lecture, demonstration and supervision to develop clinical hypnosis skills. Participants will be taught how to present hypnosis to a patient, how to do a number of different hypnotic inductions, and how to apply these in their practices. Participants will practice in small group sessions with individualized supervision, leading to the development of selected skills.

    This will be a highly interactive two days, with a minimum of 25% of workshop time spent in question and answer discussions, learning from case vignettes, video and live demonstrations and practice of induction techniques.

    Please note: there is a pre-workshop reading and a follow-up assignment for this workshop. Participants write a one-page summary of the use of hypnosis in their own practice and then submits it to a “mentor”. The mentor then provides constructive feedback and suggestions for improvement. Participants are invited to participate in a 90-minute post-workshop conference in 1-2 months following the workshop.

    Student applicants must provide supporting documentation. Please review eligibility requirements prior to registering.

    Presented by Dr. Candice Monson and Dr. Philippe Shniader.

Participants in this workshop will receive specific instruction in the manualized therapy. CBCT for PTSD is time-limited (fifteen 75-minute sessions) and problem-focused, and has the simultaneous goals of improving individual PTSD and enhancing intimate relationship functioning. Case examples and role-plays allow participants to have hands-on experience with the interventions. Clinical considerations in the application of this therapy to different types of couples and specific issues that might arise in the delivery of the therapy (e.g., intimate aggression, substance abuse) are discussed.
