Workshop Description:

Chronic pain is one of the most common reasons that adults seek medical care. The presenter will provide an overview of the basics of pain management, with a focus on hypnotic approaches. Topics will include: (1) what (and how) to speak with clients about the neurophysiology of pain; (2) the critical role of a thorough assessment of the factors contributing to pain; (3) the importance of having a depth of knowledge about the state-of-science knowledge regarding different pain conditions; and (4) the presenter’s favorite hypnotic inductions and suggestions for pain management.  

Following this initial presentation, the session moderator will facilitate a discussion between Dr. Jensen and the attendees on the issues presented (or any other issues raised by the attendees). Discussion will include clinical techniques for assessment and treatment for chronic pain.


Learning Objectives:

After attending this introductory-level presentation, participants will be able to:

(1) understand the physiological factors that underlie and influence pain and the implications of this for developing appropriate hypnotic suggestions; and

(2) be able to use hypnosis to help individuals more effectively manage chronic pain and its impact on their lives.
