    In this two day workshop the importance of utilizing proactive and well targeted interventions will be emphasized for treating depression. The more we learn about depression, the more important well designed experiential learning processes become in treatment.These include the use of task assignments and focusing processes such as hypnosis.

    In this special one-day pre-conference workshop, based on Dr. Yapko’s book, The Discriminating Therapist: Asking “How” Questions, Making Distinctions, and Finding Direction in Therapy, we will look at people through the lens of cognitive style and HOW they make the choices they make. We will especially focus on what they failed to either notice or discriminate in their global response to some circumstance. From this gentler perspective, we can focus on the roles of missing skills or incorrect information relevant to making better decisions instead of simply pathologizing people. Through carefully constructed “how” questions that reveal the client’s ineffective decision-making framework, the goals of therapy quickly become clearer and the likelihood of hitting well defined therapy targets increases. The merits of hypnosis as a vehicle of delivering these well-targeted interventions will be considered in detail.

    This is a 2-day workshop  offered for the North Carolina Society of Clinical Hypnosis, Fall 2018 conference. Both Mindfulness and hypnosis have been applied to a variety of clinical problems where they have successfully demonstrated the therapeutic value of teaching people ways to direct and intensify their quality of focus. A primary goal of the workshop is to encourage a greater awareness of and sensitivity to the personal and interpersonal dynamics that make these experiential interventions meaningful.
