Description

Your clients have endured stressful and traumatic experiences which often results in less ability maintain health and to fully provide self-comfort. This course is designed to help you understand more the neurological and psychological patterns that create PSTD symptoms. This course will focus on developing strategies to help traumatized clients heal by changing these patterns.

Hypnosis is a powerful tool that you can add to your clinical toolbox for treating trauma. When it’s 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.

During this course, special emphasis will be given to understanding how trauma affects the brain and can lead to symptoms such as anxiety, depression, panic, insomnia, obsessive-compulsive behavior and difficulty handling anger. You will learn how to treat these symptoms with the use of hypnosis.

Watch 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 research that supports hypnosis for trauma 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.

This is a course you don’t want to miss!
