Self-hypnosis is a powerful tool that can be used to alter affect, thoughts, behaviors, and self-experience. It can be used for many issues, such as self-esteem, anxiety, phobias, medical conditions and procedures, and habit control. With self-hypnosis, we can induce relaxation, do self-exploration, and strategize. This workshop will be both didactic and highly experiential. Participants will learn self-hypnotic techniques, how to design protocols, and when to train patients in self-hypnosis. We will discuss how self-hypnosis may be used for personal growth, to overcome obstacles, change behavior, to expand potential and envision new possibilities. (ASCH - 6 hours) (6 NYS CE Hours)
