Working in mental health is a privilege. We help people so much. As a mental health professional, you want to have tools and techniques to help a wide range of patients. Hypnosis should be one of those tools, an approach that can enhance and energize the many useful approaches in our helping profession. If you see clients who need personal growth, greater resources, and more emotional resiliency, then this workshop is designed for you. If you want to feel more confident and flexible, then this workshop is designed for you. And if you want personal growth as well as professional competency, then this workshop is certainly designed for you.

 

This course will extract critical insights about hypnosis that you can begin assimilating right away. We will focus on both formal trancework and informal hypnotic language that you can use to calm a nervous patient, to focus a distracted one or energize a depressed one. It is a myth to think that we have to always do formal hypnosis to get value from a hypnotic approach.

 

Because hypnosis is heavily weighted toward language skills that require practice, this workshop runs Friday evening, May 13 from 5:00 PM until 9:15 PM, and Saturday May 14 from 8:30 AM until 4:45 PM. When you attend this workshop, you can feel confident that you have plenty of time to practice the language of influence and helpful suggestion. You may wonder if you will be able to actually apply the skills right away, since the seminar is defined as an introduction. That is a good question. If you have attended workshops with Dr. Lynn Johnson before, you know that you leave those workshops with plenty of useful tools you can start using right away.

 

At the end of this workshop, Dr. Johnson will re-create an organization: The Utah Society of Clinical Hypnosis, offering ongoing discussion and skill building to members. Attending this workshop entitles you to be a member of this new organization.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER: Dr. Lynn Johnson had personal training with Dr. Milton H. Erickson, considered the greatest hypnotist in history, and has worked closely with many of Erickson’s students. After meeting with Erickson he began using hypnosis in his practice and continued that for over thirty-five years. He originally organized the Utah Society of Clinical Hypnosis (USCH) and was the president for the first five years. While the society ceased to function many years ago, Lynn hopes to reinstate and energize the USCH as a source of clinical skills and practice. Those who attend will be invited to help establish a new USCH. Lynn is a popular teacher and psychotherapy innovator.
