Two Webinars in one Morning - Brief Therapy and Clinical Hypnosis

September 16, 2022

SESSION 1:

Title:   Re-discovering Hypnosis Again for the First Time:
           The Utilization of Attentional Processes in Short-Term Psychotherapies

Time:  10:00 am -11:30 am (Eastern Time in the USA/Canada) Check your local time

Many therapists appreciate mindfulness which is often described as “attention without intention.”  The powerful and relevant question to ask, then is this: How does focusing WITH intention give rise to even more successful clinical interventions? In this dynamic webinar, we will explore how focused attention and well-structured suggestions can give rise to dramatic shifts in perception. These shifts can facilitate adaptive cognitive and emotional processes and thereby enhance psychological and physical well-being.  

SESSION 2:

Title:   Process-Oriented Hypnosis: Being General Deliberately to Produce Specific Results 

Time:  11:45 am -1:15 pm (Eastern Time in the USA/Canada) Check your local time

As advances are made to better understanding the power of focus in shaping one’s subjective perceptions and even one’s physiology, the field of clinical hypnosis has played an especially. important role in this ongoing process of discovery.  Just as there are many different models of psychotherapy, each with different foundational philosophies and methods, there are many different model of hypnosis. In this presentation we’ll explore the gentle style of process-oriented hypnotic intervention based upon my most recent book by the same title. The emphasis will be on targeting the structural components of problems rather than their content. This means thriving to understand how the client generates their symptomatic experience rather than attempting to explain why.

2022 Master Class Process-Oriented Hypnosis: Being General Deliberately to Produce Specific Results

September 23, 2022 - September 24, 2022

A New Online Skill-Building Webinar. LIVE, not recorded.

Each year we offer a Master Class for participants that have participated in our Comprehensive 100-Hour Training Course that expands upon a topic presented  in the 100-Hour training. This year’s Master Class is designed to focus on Process-Oriented Hypnosis.

This is an innovative approach to the clinical uses of hypnosis for reasons that will be well-described and explained in this webinar. We’ll explore the advantages of adopting a macro-view of people’s problems as a complement to the more typical micro-views clinicians focus upon.  The emphasis will be on targeting the structural components of problems rather than their content. This means striving to better understand how the client generates their symptomatic experience rather than attempting to explain why. More important, we’ll go the next step in identifying what the structural components of hypnotically based solutions may be.

Course times:

9:00-noon on Sept 23 (Pacific Daylight time in the USA/Canada)
9:00-noon on Sept 24 (Pacific Daylight time in the USA/Canada)

2022/2023 Online 100-Hour Clinical Hypnosis & Strategic Psychotherapy Training

October 26, 2022 - October 30, 2022

This is Phase 1 (OPEN to new participants) of a multi-phase (5-part) training and participants must register for the entire training to participate. There is no partial attendance. Once the training begins on October 26, 2022 no new participants may join this course.

This 100-hour clinical hypnosis and strategic psychotherapy course is a comprehensive training for health care professionals only (with at least a Master’s degree and license to practice in the country where you live) to learn and integrate the skills of clinical hypnosis into their practice.

Traditionally, we have offered this course as an in-person live event in the beautiful coastal city of Carlsbad, California. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit the U.S. in March, 2020 it prompted us to complete our 2020 100-Hour training online. It proved to be a much better experience than we were expecting and participants were pleased to have completed the training in this way. As a result, we are conducting this training online now and the feedback to date has been great appreciation for the opportunity to be able to participate since the in-person option would not have been possible for many of the participants. We have made the decision that this online option remains the most desirable going forward.

The small group cohesiveness becomes an integral part of this training experience as no new participants can join the group once it begins. Michael Yapko’s structured approach to teaching, his humor and emphasis on practical and hands-on learning makes this an outstanding professional and personal experience. Despite concerns that the online format would interfere with the group cohesiveness and practice sessions, that has not been the case. We are able to maintain the small group practice sessions and participants get alot of practice with each other deepening their connection and learning.

Course times:

1:00-5:00 pm each day (Pacific Daylight time in the USA/Canada)
