Integrating Hypnosis and EMDR in the Treatment of Trauma and Medically-Unexplained Pain

Presenter:  Mark Grant, Psychologist

On Demand:  5 Hours

Although Hypnosis and EMDR are categorically different interventions, in practice there is much interchange between the two, and many advantages to their being used together. Both approaches involve similar phenomena including special learning states, age regression and progression, controlled use of dissociation and evocation of unconscious resources. 

 

In this workshop, you'll be introduced  to EMDR and Hypnosis and how to integrate these two approaches into a ‘dynamic duo’ for treating trauma and medically unexplained pain. This material will be illustrated through case-histories, videos, demonstrations and experiential activities.   Training in hypnosis is not a prerequisite.

EMDR therapists will learn to integrate new interventions into their clinical work at different phases of treatment. In particular, you will learn to implement specific clinical interventions, based on ‘progressive protocols’ for dissociative disorders.
