59th Annual NESCH Basic Workshop in Hypnosis
The Basic Workshop will be held on October 11-12 and October 25-26, 2014 at the Newton-Wellesley Hospital, 2014 Washington St., Newton, MA
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.
Learning hypnosis requires mastery of both theoretical material and practical skills. Learning formats will include sixteen hours of lectures and demonstrations, and twelve hours practicing hypnotic skills in small groups (closely supervised by senior faculty). We have found that beginning hypnotists learn to be competent with extensive skill practice--- more 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 two weeks. In addition, more specialized techniques applicable to each participant's practice will be taught and practiced in small groups. Attendance is expected at both weekend sessions and will offer 28 hours of CEU/CME credit.
