At present, live participation is required for our webinars, with the exception of our special public service webinar, Coping with Covid-19. SCEH and the TCSPP are building a recorded library of our webinars, which when completed, will allow on demand viewing of webinars, 24/7. We hope to roll this out later in 2020. This webinar is part of a series of SCEH Webinars on clinical hypnosis. Learn more at: www.sceh.us/webinars
This experiential webinar will invite clinicians to approach hypnotic interventions from a positive psychology perspective. Unlike other psychological approaches which focus on reducing problems and weaknesses, positive psychology strives to identify character strengths and behaviors that encourage individuals to enhance their life with meaning and purpose. This approach is especially relevant during the ongoing pandemic. This training welcomes beginner, intermediate, and even advanced level clinicians that wish to deepen their repertoire of hypnotic suggestions for strengthening well-being.
Attendees will learn to approach the 10 principles of Hypnotic Relaxation Therapy from a positive psychology perspective. The fundamental theory, research, and applications of positive psychology interventions and Hypnotic Relaxation Therapy for Well-Being will be presented. Brief clinical vignettes and clinical anecdotes will be incorporated to ignite imagination and discussion. Most importantly, the 10 simple steps for self-hypnosis for well-being will be demonstrated to enrich experiential learning.
Workshop Learning Objectives:
After attending this intermediate level workshop, participants will be able to:
1) Describe the theory of Positive Psychology and identify three Positive Psychology interventions that are aimed at increasing well-being in clients.
2) Identify the 10 principles of Hypnotic Relaxation Therapy to ensure the intervention is successfully administered to increase well-being in clients.
3) Identify the 10 steps of self-hypnosis and describe the applicability for improving well-being for both the clinician’s and client’s well-being.
