Annapolis, Md. — Based on member feedback, the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH), in partnership with the ASCH Education and Research Foundation (ASCH-ERF), has decided to switch to a full-virtual format for the 2022 Annual Scientific Meeting and Workshops (ASMW) With this change, the program will offer more than 30 Advanced Workshops and plenary sessions.
“Caring for ourselves and our clients is of utmost importance,” said ASCH President-Elect Joe Tramontana, Ph.D. “When tasked with developing a theme and program for this year’s meeting, the end result became a wonderful panel of plenary speakers and workshops educating on the topic of resilience.”
Workshop topics fit into four tracks: Level 3 topics, Mind-Body-Spirit, Pain Management, and Trauma. These workshops are offered in session blocks of 90 minutes or three hours.
Plenary speakers for the upcoming ASMW include two renowned clinical experts. Michael D. Yapko, Ph.D., a private practice clinical psychologist and author of 16 books, conducts intensive hypnosis training programs around the world. His session, “Hypnotically Catalyzing Resilience: The Merits of Encouraging Vision,” will identify ways hypnosis can be used to promote resilience, examine the consequences of a future orientation on different aspects of psychological functioning, and analyze ways a temporal orientation influences treatment results. Yapko will also be presenting a 90-minute workshop on the second day of ASMW.
Plenary speaker and psychologist David Patterson, Ph.D., ABPH, of the University of Washington School of Medicine, has 30 years of experience practicing hypnosis and experimental hypnosis. More than 200 of his publications have appeared in peer-reviewed journals and chapters relevant to hypnosis, pain control, and adjustment to trauma. His plenary session, “Scientific Principles to Enhance and Broaden Inductions and Suggestions for Enhanced Resilience,” will detail three areas of science that can promote more effective hypnotic inductions, and evaluate the language of inductions based on dissociation, neurophysiology, and social psychological principles. Patterson will also present a workshop on March 3.
