American Society of Clinical Hypnosis-Education and Research Foundation (ASCH-ERF) Regional Workshop (Dec, 2018)
Dec 13 - 16, 2018 | Pinellas County, Florida
American Society of Clinical Hypnosis-Education and Research Foundation (ASCH-ERF) Regional Workshop is organized by American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH) and will be held from Dec 13 - 16, 2018 at Sheraton Sand Key Resort, Clearwater Beach, Florida, United States of America. Course Description: Integrative case formulation has long been considered a core skill of trained healthcare professionals. However, while many articles describe what case formulation might include, and how to use the process, many health care professionals remain uncertain and uncomfortable with the use of this skill, how to integrate hypnosis into the plan and how it can appropriately inform ongoing and frequently changing treatment. This might be particularly true for clinicians from varied healthcare disciplines who use the dynamic and powerful intervention strategy of clinical hypnosis. Dr Lane Wagaman will begin the workshop with an overview of the what, why, when, and how of case formulation, core content of a pertinent case conceptualization, a brief review of integrative conceptualization models, and the importance of case conceptualization in the development of an initial, and adaptable, treatment plan. The how, why and when of incorporating hypnosis into the treatment plan will also be presented. The workshop will continue with presentations and discussion by several widely experienced and capable clinicians, who are accomplished and respected educators, of clinical applications of case conceptualization and treatment planning, with emphasis on specific patient populations and presentations, and with particular focus on the inclusion of clinical hypnosis in the healthcare relationship. Dr. David Reid will focus on case formulation and treatment planning using hypnosis for the treatment of anxiety and phobic disorders. Two case studies will be reviewed and include a thorough review of each case and the rationale for selected treatment interventions. Participants will have the opportunity to generate their own hypnotic treatment plan for an individual who suffers from a specific phobia. How to conceptualize the issues being presented in complicated cases will be discussed and demonstrated by Dr Holly Forester-Miller. She will review the psychological and medical issues in hypnotic surgery preparation for a patient having very complex surgery with a trauma history related to prior surgeries and related grief issues. Participants will have the opportunity to work through another complicated case for which hypnosis was effective in helping a woman whose anxiety impacted every area of her life and manifested in a variety of physical symptoms. Case formulation and treatment planning when working with patients with obesity will be discussed by Dr Cheryl Beighle. Biobehavioral interventions and hypnotic strategies will be presented. Dr. Sheryll Daniel will discuss case formulation and the use of hypnosis in the treatment of depressive disorders. She will focus on when and how to focus on addressing the patient’s symptoms, and how to discern when deeper exploration of the causes of depression and the triggers for a specific depressive episode is indicated. She will demonstrate the integration of hypnosis with cognitive-behavioural techniques. She will provide case reviews as examples. Participants will create treatment plans for a patient with a depressive disorder. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
