The webinar will introduce Stop Solution for calming emotional flooding. Easy to learn and easy to teach tools will help our patients and clients deal with difficult emotions. The approach combines hypnosis, mindfulness and cognitive behavioral techniques. Dr. Daitch will demonstrate some of the tools with a volunteer.

The timing of the webinar is not incidental. Holiday season is fast approaching with promises of joyful time spent with friends and family, festivities, and a chance to rest and recharge. While for most people this time of year is cherished, it is also true that some of our most vulnerable patients and clients see it as a time when anxiety and depression take over their lives. Past or recent losses, loneliness, difficulties in resolving internal and external conflicts, unrealistic expectations, and problems in communicating with family or people outside one's close circle are sometimes just too much to handle. 

Dr. Daitch is well known for her clinical work, has published books on affect regulation, and has taught hundreds of professionals all over the world. 

We are looking forward to the webinar!

Basic, Intermediate & Advanced 

"Hypnosis in Medical and behavioral Settings: Appreciating Disparities and Common Grounds" advanced workshop will be taught by Joel Marcus, PsyD and David Reid, PsyD.

Just like the body and mind do not exist in separate worlds, practitioners in medical and mental health fields should be aware of each other and exist in harmony to help a person heal.

Great topic and just at the right time!

Advanced: "Healing when Cure is Not Possible: Hypnotic Approaches to Address Acute, Procedural, and Chronic Pain, and Palliative Intervention in Advanced Illness"
Dan Handel, MD, Sylvain Neron, PhD
It is well known to anyone who has used hypnosis in treatment of any type of pain that fear of more pain is one of the factors that contributes to more suffering. While we cannot cure a lot of illnesses or conditions of advanced age, we can always help our patients be more comfortable.
Dan Handel and Sylvian Neron will help us expand our skills when working with patients in severe distress, address our own fears and limitations, and help our patients maintain dignity and humanity when facing suffering and pain.
