HYPNOSIS: Neural Correlates and other Brain Stuff

Proposed Program Description:
HYPNOSIS is a powerful treatment modality used for thousands of years to help people heal and make rapid and lasting change, but only recently have we begun to really understand the WHAT and HOW and WHY it works as the field of NEUROSCIENCE is exploding with research and confirmation of what hypnotists have known for years. This session will explore why hypnosis is truly shaping up to be the cornerstone of therapeutic treatment in the future as our nation and the world evolves to want more control over making fast, lasting change.

Behavioral Learning Objectives:
1.      To be able to relay to clients some information about the neuroscience behind how hypnosis works.
2.      To have a general understanding of evidence behind effectiveness of hypnosis as a treatment modality in counseling.
3.      To be able to list the two primary neural correlates of hypnosis.

Friday 1pm Clinical Track Room 1

Hypnosis & Human Givens: Resources, Rewinds, and REM.

Proposed Program Description:
The HUMAN GIVENS approach is a set of organizing ideas that provides a holistic, scientific framework for understanding the way that individuals and society work and at its core is a highly empowering idea – that we come into the world with an instinctive knowledge of what we need and with a set of inner resources that can help us get our needs met, provided we use them properly and are living within a healthy environment. Based in the most cutting-edge research into neuroscience and consciousness, Human Givens uses healing through trance state as a primary modality for its most powerful treatment.

Behavioral Learning Objectives:
To learn the 9 primary and basic needs of each human being.
To list the resources that we each have available within us.
To delineate the steps of the rewind protocol and the mechanisms for brain activation that allow it to work.

Sunday 2p-4p Clinical Track Room 1

HG Rewind: Fast Phobia RELIEF!

Fears and phobias can be very debilitating for a lot of people and most would do just about anything to feel better, calmer, and braver. Through my work with the HUMAN GIVENS approach, a holistic, scientific framework for understanding the way that individuals and society work, I learned a new and improved version of the rewind method that is all about how to help clients get their wish – fast! This session will include an in-depth look at the steps of the technique, what happens in the brain and how it works, a short demonstration, and a chance to practice!

Behavioral Learning Objectives:
To learn the steps of the HG Fast Phobia Cure/Rewind.
To be able to recite one helpful story for use within the protocol.
To delineate the mechanisms for brain activation that allow it to work.
