2013 Basic Workshop
The NESCH Annual Basic Workshop will be held on October 12-13 and October 26-27, 2013. The overview below outlines the structure of the workshop.
Participants in the four-day Basic Workshop will learn how to use hypnosis to resolve problems of anxiety, acute pain, and procedural pain. Upon completion of the full curriculum, participants will be prepared to use hypnosis in their own clinical practice of medicine, dentistry, psychotherapy, and the allied health professions.
This four-day course will provide a foundation for understanding hypnotic trance phenomena and the utilization of hypnotic trance in clinical practice. Topic areas in healthcare to be covered will include anxiety management and acute and procedural pain. This is an intensive Workshop which is designed to equip clinicians to immediately begin using hypnosis after completion of the full curriculum. Participants should be prepared to personally experience hypnotic trance phenomena, and to extensively practice trance inductions in supervised small groups (in fact, more skill-practice time than in any other Workshop.)
Participants will learn:
a conceptual foundation for understanding hypnotic trance phenomena.
to assess patients for suitability for hypnotherapy
to utilize hypnotic trance phenomena for symptom resolution.
Learning hypnosis requires mastery of both theoretical material and practical skills. Learning formats will include fourteen hours of lectures and demonstrations, and fourteen hours practicing hypnotic skills in small groups (closely supervised by senior faculty). We have found that beginning hypnotists learn to be competent with more skill practice than in any other Workshop. Participants will be expected to practice their emerging skills in the intervening two weeks between weekend sessions. In the second weekend there will be an opportunity for participants to discuss and learn from their experiences during the preceding three weeks. In addition, more specialized techniques will be taught by lectures, demonstrations and skill practice in small groups. Attendance is expected at both weekend sessions and will offer 28 hours of CEU/CME credit.
