Incorporating Hypnosis into Psychotherapy with Children and Adolescents to Promote Resilience. Many clinicians struggle with how to integrate their newly learned hypnosis skills into the practice of psychotherapy. This address will explore why it is useful to think hypnotically and how to do so. It will also illustrate how to use clinical creativity to find the opportunities to be hypnotic, adapting the tools of hypnosis to fit the child’s psychotherapeutic needs by Camillo Loriedo (Rome, Italy).
Global Cognition and Mental Health: The Therapeutic Merits of Concreteness and Specificity in Applied Hypnosis. Why does a grown adult need to be reminded by a therapist that he or she no longer needs to feel or act like a helpless child? Why does someone treat a new boyfriend or girlfriend unfairly, as if he or she is the same as the last one who hurt him or her? One answer: Global thinking. Most people – therapists included – are global thinkers, people who ativeeffects of trauma. It’s also a basis for giving bad therapeutic advice. What forms does global thinking take, and what can therapists who utilize hypnosis do to effectively address this cognitive style? In this keynote address, we will consider the role of global thinking on various symptom presentations and affirm how very important it is to be able to teach concrete and specific skills – perhaps surprisingly sometimes through the use of abstract, metaphorical language in hypnosis – in making important distinctions that can lead to improved decision-making and, subsequently, better mental health by Jeffrey K. Zeig (Phoenix, AZ, USA) and Arreed F. Barabasz.
