Workshop Summary:

In this two-day workshop, participants will discover the power of an integrative mind-body orientation to hypnosis. Participants will learn to apply this orientation in crafting effective hypnotic strategies for intervening in digestive disorders (such as IBS and GERD), autoimmune problems (including rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis) and addiction issues. Through an engaging and humor-filled approach, Dr. Weisberg will bring these concepts to life utilizing a combination of demonstrations, experiential exercises and didactic training. Participants will acquire a broader conceptual framework for mind-body interventions as well as several new hypnotic strategies for addressing complex clinical challenges.
