This 1.5-hour webinar will provide an overview of hypnotic strategies and suggestions for helping individuals better self-manage chronic pain conditions.  It will begin with a discussion of the neurophysiology of nociception and pain, focusing on nine specific processes and physiological structures involved in pain perception, and that can be influenced by hypnotic suggestions.  Evidence regarding pain’s impact on other functioning domains (e.g., activity level, sleep, mood) will be discussed, and ideas for hypnotic suggestions and approaches for addressing *all* of these domains and processes will be generated.

Next, the facilitator will describe what is currently known about the etiology and factors that contribute to pain associated with a number of common chronic pain conditions (specifically, headache, chronic widespread pain, low back pain, neuropathic pain, and complex regional pain syndrome), and how hypnosis can be tailored to treat each one.  The webinar will end with a demonstration showing how clinicians can target hypnotic suggestions tailored to the needs of a specific patient.
