COURSE PURPOSE/STATEMENT OF NEED
Clinical Hypnosis is a therapeutic intervention with empirical support for a variety of clinical conditions including: procedure-related and chronic 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.
