They say “nicotine is as addictive as heroin” and the research shows hypnosis is one of the most effective treatments for nicotine dependency. One has to wonder then why hypnosis is not more widely used in the treatment of drug and alcohol addiction?
In this two-day seminar you will learn from two of the nation’s foremost authorities on the use of hypnosis methods for ending the cycle of addiction, stopping compulsive behavior, and control physical withdrawal using hypnotic methods of intervention. Scott and Richard are experienced in working on treatment teams, and will share an integrative approach to using hypnotic methods in traditional counseling and treatment.
Consider these statistics:
- One in every eight Americans has a significant problem with alcohol or drugs
- Approximately 27 million Americans either use illicit drugs regularly or are “heavy drinkers.” Of these almost 16 million are estimated to need immediate treatment
- The estimated annual direct cost to our society resulting from substance abuse is more than 250 billion dollars
And these headlines from peer reviewed journals:
- 81% Reported They Had Stopped Smoking After Hypnosis (Texas A&M University)
- Significantly More Methadone Addicts Quit with Hypnosis. 94% Remained Narcotic Free (American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis)
- Hypnosis shows a 77 percent success rate for at least a 1-year follow-up (American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis)
- Hypnosis is a successful method to treat addictions. (American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis)
- See all of these citations at TheHypnoStore: http://thehypnostore.com/research-on-the-effectiveness-of-hypnosis/
The progression of addiction is effectively halted using methods of clinical hypnosis.
You can earn 12 Hours of Approved Continuing Education and learn specific methods for relapse prevention, detoxification and behavioral change. This two day seminar will provide hypnotic scripts, lectures, notes and assessment tools for both hypnotherapy and counseling settings.
In this seminar, professionals will learn both how to integrate hypnosis into other treatment modalities, including (but not limited to) 12-step programs. This seminar will not teach a “this over that” approach, but rather a holistic approach integrating hypnosis, NLP, spirituality and medically based solutions to the problem of addiction.
This seminar will teach Professionals to:
- Utilize trance as a method of recovery from alcohol and drug abuse
- Integrate NLP patterns into successful change work for drug and alcohol abusing clients
- Work both in private practice as a hypnotist, or to integrate these methods into work with a treatment team in inpatient or outpatient settings.
This workshop will open doors to you professionally and equip you to help clients with a variety of addictions find recovery even if they have failed at traditional treatment or 12-step programs. You can consider this workshop an essential toolkit helping you to become the best therapist possible in the area of addictions intervention.
This seminar teaches both alternatives to the dominant medical and 12-step model and working within this framework. Our purpose is to find what works for each client, rather than a singular approach that limits client options.
We will explore behavioral self-control models and techniques for reducing rather than eliminating drug or alcohol use. In our pursuit of client solutions we will not shy away from that which is controversial, instead preferring to explore the possibilities which may help each unique client.
