Workshop Description:

Glove anesthesia has a long tradition as a hypnoanalgesic technique to reduce pain and anxiety in anticipation of and during medical procedures. Adapted to Pediatrics over 30 years ago, it became “The Magic Glove.” This child-friendly procedure invites imaginative absorption with repeated stroking the back of the hand combined with specific hypnotic suggestions for sensory changes and increased comfort.

This presentation will show videos and explore the wide range of applications for the Magic Glove: as an Induction, for Flu/Covid Vaccinations, for analgesia at the dentist, drawing blood, accessing IVs, in-dwelling ports, or lines, and for empowering patients and their parents.

Workshop Learning Objectives:

After attending this introductory level workshop, participants will be able to:

1. Describe four forms that the Magic Glove technique can be applied to create sensory changes for children and teens during medical or dental procedures

2. Plan how to use hypnotic suggestions to focus the attention of anxious children and teens in order to build comfort and calm prior to and during painful medical and dental procedures.

3. Apply this hypno-analgesic technique to their own field of work.
