Over the past five decades or so, Dr. Lynn has used hypnosis in clinical practice and studied hypnosis in the laboratory. In this presentation, he will share what he has learned from his ongoing fascination with hypnosis and how it can be used as a catalyst to augment the effects of empirically supported interventions.
He will overview findings from his laboratory and what others have discovered regarding the nature of hypnotic inductions, suggestions, and the hypnotic context, and review their implications for clinical work. He will also present his approach to leveraging hypnosis to increase cognitive-behavioral-flexibility and shift spontaneous mental activity in line with goal-directed actions and deeply held personal values.
After attending this introductory level workshop, participants will be able to:
1. Summarize recent findings regarding how hypnosis can be used as a catalyst to empirically supported interventions.
2. Discuss recent findings regarding the nature of hypnotic inductions, suggestions, and how the hypnotic context affects experiential learning in psychotherapy and beyond.
