Treating Depression Hypnotically and Strategically: The Power of Experiential Learning in Teaching Mood Regulation Skills


Treating Depression Hypnotically and Strategically emphasizes the importance of utilizing proactive and well-targeted interventions when treating depression. How you as a clinician think about the nature of depression and answers fundamental questions – such as what causes depression – naturally determine what treatment approach you are most likely to take.

But regardless of your preferred orientation, depression experts agree that treatment needs to be multi-dimensional and active. Furthermore, the more we learn about the neuroscience of depression, especially neuroplasticity and neurogenesis, the more important well designed experiential learning processes become in treatment. These include the use of task assignments and focusing processes such as hypnosis.

You will learn:

How hypnosis can both increase your client’s responsiveness and enhance the efficacy and power of your interventions.
To identify specific cognitive patterns that influence treatment responsiveness so that you can employ hypnotic strategies to enhance their value as catalysts
How hypnosis can be used as a means of encouraging behavioral activation. Regardless of your theoretical model, the research shows us that we need to get our clients acting and trying on new behaviors. Hypnosis can help you do that.

Out of the Blue: Six non-medication ways to relieve depression

ohanlonDepressed people tend to ruminate on the same thoughts, focus their attention in the same direction and do the same things over and over again (like stay in bed). This presentation will show you how these things are like creating and reinforcing a “bad trance”-like state and how to use our modern knowledge of the brain to come up with some simple, yet powerful interventions to start to give depressed people traction out of their bleak state.

You will learn:

Specify why depression is like a bad trance and how to change the trance to a more positive one.
Discover and use many non-drug interventions you can use to break the bad trance of depression and help your clients heal while drastically reducing relapse rates
Talk about why brain plasticity has both a good and bad aspect for people who are depressed. This will help you in your interventions and to build rapport with your clients.

Getting Your Life Back: Healing Depression with Hypnosis

Carolyn DaitchThe aim of this workshop is to present innovative and effective hypnotherapeutic techniques for the management of depression. Hypnosis is a powerful modality that can help your clients manage their symptoms by altering the cognitive, emotional, behavioral and physical responses that accompany depression. As such, it can be a powerful adjunct to both cognitive and behavioral treatments for depression. Mental health professionals from all backgrounds can enhance their clinical repertoire with the hypnotherapeutic adjuncts provided, and offer clients quick, easy-to-implement techniques to treat depression.

You will be able to:

Articulate the rationale for the use of hypnotherapeutic techniques as an adjunct in the treatment of depression (for you, your clients and any organization where you need to justify your treatment protocol)
Identify and implement several interventions that can help your clients diminish feelings of hopelessness associated with depression, including a demonstration of two short, powerful trances call “fast forward” and “the wise self.”
Identify and implement two interventions (transcripts provided) that can help access strong parts of self that can manage more vulnerable parts.

Steve Andreas
The Many Faces of Loss, and How to Resolve It.

SteveAndreas Much depression results from grieving a loss, which can take many forms. It can be a loss of a person/relationship, a location, a treasured activity, information, or a physical object. It can even be the loss of something that someone never actually had, except as a treasured anticipated dream. Grief results from thinking of the loss as distant, resulting in a feeling of emptiness. Resolution occurs when the person reunites with the treasured memory so that it is present in their experience, with all the positive feelings.

You will learn:

How to elicit the internal mental structure of Grief in response to a
loss (loss of a person, desired futures and other commonly encountered losses).
How to elicit the internal mental structure of a loss that is experienced as a positive resourceful present felt experience.
How to transform the experience of grief into a positive resourceful present “felt experience” to help your clients rapidly transform their life.

Rob McNeilly
What Can Solution Hypnosis Contribute to The Treatment of Depression?

JF04951 – Version 3 In this presentation I will invite you to explore into what hypnosis in general and solution hypnosis in particular can contribute to this question, how we can explore ways to more respectfully adapt our approach to the uniqueness of each individual client’s experience of depression by exploring what might be missing for them and helping them to reconnect with whatever this may be so they can then find their own solution often in a surprisingly rapid and permanent way.

The issue of self care will also be addressed. That is, how to avoid getting depressed yourself.

You will learn:

how you can discover the specific experiences that each of your clients needs to heal from depression.
to clarify what might be missing for each individual leading to a more respectful and more rapid resolution of their depression
use ericksonian strategies for connect people to their experiential resources so that they can more easily change their behaviors and engage in enjoyable life activities.
how to avoid therapy burnout and make sure that you do not “catch” depression.

Some rare and highly impactful presentations from our extensive library of presentations:

A Kaleidoscopic View of Utilization” by Helen Erickson, PhD

“Most Ericksonian practitioners have adopted the concept of Utilization as the foundation for their practice. Yet many still discuss it from the perspective of what the practitioner does with the client. An alternative perspective is that utilization is a way of thinking about the client. The first emphasizes the work of the therapist, the second emphasizes the client’s world view as a foundation for the therapist’s work. This presentation explores the relationship and implications for the two perspectives.”

Gabrielle Peacock, MD: Starting In The Middle: Ericksonian Hypnosis For Psychosis

Several people asked whether hypnosis should or should not be used with people labeled “psychotic” or with other such labels. In this bonus presentation Gabrielle Peacock shares her experience of working with human beings with various levels of what she calls “a mastery at dissociation” and what the medical model might call psychosis, bipolar, or the dissociative spectrum disorders. Many of her strategies are useful with people labeled “depressed.”
