American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH) Regional Workshop is organized by American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH) and will be held during Apr 26 - 29, 2018 at Holiday Inn Express Denver Downtown, Denver, Colorado, United States of America.
Course Description :
While research supports hypnosis as a legitimate medical intervention for both behavioral health and medical conditions, there is a gap at the individual practitioner level in understanding the neurobiological underpinnings of hypnosis and its effects on the brain and body, and the translation of this knowledge to enhance clinical care. In addition, with the advent of technologically-enhanced health care, including behavioral health, the nature of the clinician-patient therapeutic alliance is changing. Clinicians of the future will need to understand how technology is changing health-care delivery including its impact on the practice of hypnosis. This workshop will provide a unique blend of didactic and experiential opportunities dedicated to the neuroscience of hypnosis. Participants will gain a pragmatic understanding of the neuroscience of hypnosis, observe hypnotic demonstrations, and participate in discussions about the neurobiology underlying hypnotic techniques. For some, seeing is believing, and gaining a better understanding and appreciation of how hypnotic interventions impact and modify neurophysiology can be validating, not only for the clinician, but our patients as well.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
