Intermediate / Advanced Workshop in Clinical Hypnosis is organized by University of Minnesota and would be held during Jun 8 - 10, 2017 at Crowne Plaza Minneapolis, Plymouth, Minnesota, United States of America.
Description : In this two-day workshop, we will consider the role that hypnosis can play in a relationally attuned therapeutic relationship towards facilitating attachment repair in patients with developmental arrests in self-regulation and identity formation. The relational and psychological functions of attunement, representation, and mentalization are essential components of a secure attachment experience.
The presenter will review the literature and describe how hypnosis can be applied in working with each of these areas of attachment. In its utilization of shared attention, tone of voice, pacing, language, and imagery, clinical hypnosis as a state, relationship, and technique offers psychotherapists a way of introducing a healthy attachment experience and renewing appropriate developmental functioning in these patients. Through a mixture of didactic and experiential approaches, participants will develop increased competency in (1) understanding how the therapeutic relationship in general, and clinical hypnosis from an attachment frame in particular, can be utilized to re-build developmental structure and re-engage reflective functioning and (2) utilizing specific applications of clinical hypnosis towards this aim.
Eligibility and target audience: This conference is ideal for persons holding a Doctoral Degree in Medicine, Dentistry, or Psychology; persons holding a Masters Degree in Social Work, Marriage and Family Counseling, or Clinical or Counseling Psychology who are licensed by the state/province in which they practice; a Registered Nurse with advanced subspecialty training and certification or a Masters Degree; or a student actively enrolled in a graduate program leading to a degree in any of the foregoing. Other Masters level, licensed health professionals (e.g., Occupational and Physical Therapists, Speech and Language Pathologists, et. al.) are welcome and encouraged to attend.
Educational Objectives are :
• Describe how a hypnotherapeutic attachment approach could be utilized for the purposes of developmental repair.
• Articulate how the hypnotic elements of attunement, representation, mentalization can be used to facilitate developmental repair.
• Deliver 3 hypnotic suggestions that advance the attachment goals of enhancing attunement in the hypnotherapeutic relationship, developing mental representation of a secure attachment figure or ego state, and increasing the capacity for reflective awareness about mental states in developmentally arrested patients.
• Integrate attachment and hypnosis into the psychotherapeutic treatment of borderline and narcissistic spectrum developmental arrests.
