COURSE DESCRIPTION: Children are always in a creative and imaginative trance-like state. This might seem to make the pediatric hypnotherapist's job easier, or perhaps challenging and difficult. While the trance may frequently be right there, understanding a child's developmental level and degree of autonomy and the necessary language to use [or not to use] in order to establish rapport and trust is where the differences are compared to working with adults. An introduction to working with clinical hypnosis in the pediatric population in terms of concepts, history and techniques will be presented.
1-Children are not little adults.
2-Need to establish "Rapport, rapport, rapport."
3-The importance of language used in pediatric population.
4-In Ericksonian fashion, be able to utilize what the child brings to the table.
5-Hopefully the talk will serve as a springboard to attend to all-pediatric course.
