Course Description:

Your clients have endured stressful and traumatic experiences which often results in less ability to maintain health and to fully provide self-comfort. This course is designed to help you understand more fully the neurological and psychological patterns that create PTSD. The course will focus on developing strategies to change these patterns so that trauma survivors can heal more quickly and fully.

Hypnosis is a powerful tool that can move your clients from trauma to thriving. Used with the brain in mind, hypnosis provides effective interventions to help clients interrupt negative patterns, live more in joy with the ability to self-motivate, and accomplish life goals.

When the unconscious mind activates the resources within a client, recovery is accomplished. Then when hypnotic interventions are provided in deeper mental states, the nervous system provides self-comfort, and results in the ability to resolve trauma, and cultivate creative solutions to problems. Hypnosis allows the trauma memories to lose their emotional charge and move into long-term memory without intrusions into everyday living.

Special emphasis will be given to understanding how trauma affects the brain and leads to anxiety, depression, panic, insomnia, obsessive-compulsive behavior and difficulty handling anger. You will learn how to also heal these symptoms with hypnosis.

Join hypnosis experts and trainers, Carol Kershaw and Bill Wade, as they demystify and simplify hypnosis so you can start using it with your traumatized clients immediately. They will break down the cutting-edge research that supports hypnosis and teach you how to implement it into your clinical work. You will learn through demonstration, case-examples, lecture, experiential exercises and hands-on experience.

  1. Breakdown the basics of hypnosis.
  2. Analyze the research on hypnosis for treating trauma.

  10. Develop a positive mood with three brain change tools.
