PEDIATRIC HYPNOSIS

Clinical Training Workshop for Health Professionals

Two days of training at B.C. Children’s Hospital
KO-155
Part 1: October 20th 2018 (Saturday)
&
Part 2: January 19th 2019 (Saturday)

Children in pain and distress are highly responsive to hypnotic suggestions for relief, sensation alteration, and for comfort. This workshop will teach how to utilize pediatric hypnosis to address common distressing hospital procedures and situations and enable children to cope, co-operate and feel better. It is specifically designed to strengthen clinical practice skills.

The two-day workshop (October 20th 2018 & January 19th 2019) is provided on two Saturdays which are 3 months apart, to allow for the implementation of skills and practice opportunities between sessions. At the January 19th 2019 session, case experiences can be discussed, analyzed, alternative strategies demonstrated, and learning refined and practiced.

We will focus on hypnotic language, communication skills and pediatric hypnotic strategies to therapeutically address pain, distress and anxiety. Live demonstrations and video examples will be a key part of the workshop. There will also be supervised practiced sessions in this applied, hands-on experience, so that you leave knowing how to use hypnotic skills more purposefully in your pediatric practice with children and adolescents.
