The Connection Imperative

What Compassion and Hypnosis Teach us about Treating Violence and Trauma

Dr-Stefanakis
Presented By
:·Dr. Harry Stefanakis, Ph.D., R. Psych.

Saturday April 29th, 2017

Unitarian Church of Vancouver

949 West 49th Avenue (at Oak Street)
Vancouver, BC  V5Z 2T1

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

The fundamental problems in today's society involve experiences of fragmentation. People experience a sense of fragmentation within themselves, from each other and the world at large. Violence and trauma are consequences of fragmentation, and also are causes of fragmentation. The antidote to fragmentation is connection.

In this one day workshop, Dr Stefanakis explored how compassion and hypnosis can activate this antidote and can provide us with a foundation for intervening in violence and trauma.

Through discussion and demonstration, Dr. Stefanakis presented his C.O.R.E. (Centering, Opening, Releasing and Extending) essential components for effective interventions supported by theory, research and practice from more than two decades addressing violence and trauma issues.
