8:30-Noon Scott Sandland, Ch.t. – Hypnotherapy with Children and Teens.
Working with adolescents and children in hypnotherapy requires knowledge of specific induction strategies, and methods of structuring suggestion.

This is a real opportunity for those who want to gain skills for working with a fun and exciting patient population.
1:30-5:00 Kweetai Neill, Ph.D. - Open Eye Trance: Hypnosis without formal induction
Did you know effective trance work can be done in an open-eye state? Clinical hypnosis is presumed to involve formal trance induction, working with alpha consciousness as a client reclines in a relaxed state with eyes closed. But that formal process may intimidate some counselors or scare their clients. Dr. Kweethai’s mesmerizing workshop shows how to conduct an Intuitive Interview, engaging clients in focused, intensive sessions without formal trance induction. The moment a client enters your space, they are already in trance. Learn how to maximize your environment, demeanor, and professional self to help clients heal. Even the colors within your office space can influence the client’s state of mind. Formal induction is optional; the real magic of trance work begins with the first moment of rapport. Dr. Kweethai will teach specific communication techniques to help you help clients feel safe and excited; ready to evoke the change they desire.

Mental and Emotional Road Blocks to Change
There are countless diets available today and people can lose weight on most any diet. Few people succeed in attaining their goal and maintaining that goal weight throughout their life. Even people who have had stomach surgery struggle to keep the weight off and sometimes gain it back. Diets don’t work and it's not about the food! If taking the weight off and keeping it off is not about the food then what is it all about?
"If It’s Not About The Food … Then What? ", Roger Moore will explore six mental and emotional roadblocks that keep people from losing the weight.
- Commitment: What are the stages of change?
- Discomfort: Food as a drug of choice.
- Inner Control: After all of these failures, will I ever be successful?
- Perfectionism: Since I’ve eaten the cookie I’ve blown the whole day.
- Secondary Gain: This weight is protection?
- Stress Eating: Coping with life.
Each of these roadblocks will be explored and methods of working with them will be offered. Be more successful with your weight loss clients. Find out how to ascertain your client’s roadblocks and offer them the tools to progress through these barriers so that they may take the weight off and keep it off.
