HOURS: [1pm-3pm]

Presented by: Dr. Marlene Levy [President, NYSCH.ORG]

 

       DESCRIPTION:

Misrepresentations of hypnosis and its professional usage seem to pervade television shows and movies. 

Understanding the reality behind the many myths and misrepresentations is paramount prior to beginning an in-depth learning needed for the professional use of Clinical Hypnosis.

Knowing these myths and relating them to your patient at the initial consultation is a prerequisite to forming the needed professional/patient rapport when working with clinical hypnosis With this understanding,  a professional can first begin to explore  clinical hypnosis with a patient , along with its many uses. Along with the basic need to understand what Clinical hypnosis is, an explanation and description of the metaphoric suggestions used for changing patterns will be outlined for professional usage.

  

Learning Objectives

  1-Name the various myths and misrepresentations then describe the actual realities.

  2- Give examples of the professional use of clinical hypnosis as an adjunct to the professional treatment plan. 

3-Give examples of at least 3 metaphoric suggestions which can be used to change negative patterns into more positive ones.

   [i.e. gate control theory, control switch, pressure cooker along with various worded metaphoric suggestions]

  4-Describe the difference in trance interventions used in clinical hypnosis using metaphoric suggestions as a means to enhance the trance state as well as further the individual patient treatment goals.

2nd NYSCH Focus Group

PLEASE, let us know the best days and times that would work for you meet on ZOOM.

 

Dear Colleagues,

This is an unprecedented time in our history with our population emotionally in need of our services.

We are unique in being able to ease much of the pain being presently experienced.

The New York Society of Clinical Hypnosis was founded in 1974. Now, we are in a new era of providing patients with our services via ZOOM or programs similar, for the time being.

Again, I would like you to please consider becoming involved in a NYSCH FOCUS group in order for us to continue to provide training to eligible professionals in the use of hypnosis in clinical settings.

 

Let’s work together to once again make NYSCH a prominent teaching society.

Let’s offer each other suggestions as to what is perceived at present to be needed by our Society.

Would you want to participate in a question and answer session about CLINICAL HYPNOSIS TODAY?

 

*Please contact me with days and time that would you be available to participate in the new NYSCH focus group.

Let’s meet and share with each other.
