Trauma-focused Hypnotherapy/Bilateral Hypnotherapy combines innovative approaches with one of the oldest interventions used in the treatment of trauma: hypnosis. This course will teach participants a brief history and the foundations of hypnotherapy. Participants will be taught how to implement hypnotic inductions, apply a variety of interventions, as well as how to emerge clients out of a hypnotic state. By the end of the course participants will also understand that using hypnotherapy has a positive, lasting, vicarious effect on the therapist.
The protocols used will include the GIDIE Method. The ingredients of the GIDIE acronym will help steer participants through easy application of each stage of this intervention and offers an easily accessible method for remembering phases of hypnotherapy, which will allow for transfer from the course material to your clinical practice! Participants will be able to conceptualize complicated cases in a clear system that allows for quick resolution and reduced stress on the client and therapist.
