Event held online via Zoom. Zoom link will be available on course page in “My Courses” upon event registration. 

Descriptions and definitions of stress and anxiety in children will be presented, with particular emphasis on their increasing prevalence. These two problem areas greatly impact children’s biopsychosocial health. Common stress-related and anxiety-based problems will be discussed. Unfortunately, the availability of clinical treatments is limited for this population and many families encounter long wait lists. Therapeutic pediatric hypnosis is an evidence-based and clinically effective therapeutic tool for stress management and coping with anxiety. A brief review of its efficacy for select conditions will be provided.

This webinar will focus on self-hypnosis training for children, a component of therapeutic pediatric hypnosis. It supports desired behavioral changes and encourages ongoing wellness. Self-hypnosis training can be a useful stand-alone intervention, too, as a component of psychological first aid and a lifelong preventative skill. This is evidenced by the efforts of Health Frontiers and Comfort Kits for Children. Some of the phenomenological elements of self-hypnosis will be identified and practical tips to introduce and encourage self-hypnosis to children will be described. An excerpt of a self-hypnosis training audio recording for a child will be played. Free resources that have been created and assembled by faculty affiliated with the National Pediatric Hypnosis Training Institute will be referenced.

Event held online via Zoom. Zoom link will be available on course page in “My Courses” upon event registration.
