Tri-level pediatric-specific medical hypnosis skills training, co-sponsored by the National Pediatric Hypnosis Training Institute (www.NPHTI.org), the University of Minnesota Department of Pediatrics, and the Minnesota Society of Clinical Hypnosis.
Clinical Hypnosis is a therapeutic intervention with empirical support for a variety of clinical conditions: including chronic and procedure-related pain, anxiety disorders, stress-related conditions, habit problems, sleep disturbance, and various medical conditions. This workshop provides training in the use of clinical hypnosis and its applications to children and teens with various conditions in pediatric settings. The workshop is offered at three levels (Introductory, Intermediate and Advanced) depending on the clinician’s previous training in pediatric hypnosis. Strong emphasis is placed on experiential learning, with supervised practice of hypnotic techniques suitable for children/teens and of integrating a developmental perspective.
