    Integrating Hypnosis into Dynamic Psychotherapy 

    Paul Feldman

    Paul Feldman, PhD, will present a day long workshop and share how he uses hypnosis in clinical practice.   The workshop will review two psychodynamic models of development based diagnosis and implications for treatment including goals, strategy and technical considerations. Hypnotic supportive and uncovering techniques will be presented for use in clinical practice.

    This workshop will explore issues of personality development and structure, and corresponding decisions regarding treatment, through clinical case material presented by participants.  Participants are requested to submit brief clinical vignettes from their current work prior to the training that will serve as the basis for discussing treatment options and, where appropriate, selection and introduction of hypnotic techniques.  

    By submitting brief clinical vignettes from current work with clients, participants can more easily grasp the application and usefulness of the material presented.  

    While it is not required, each registrant is requested to present a brief (one page) case summary as a basis for discussion.  Summaries might include:  Basic biographical information (age, gender, etc.), presenting problem, treatment history & current status, and a question regarding treatment that might be helpful to address. 

    If possible, please email your case summary a week or two in advance to  If not, please bring two copies of your summary with you on the 15th.

    If you have any questions regarding this request or any other aspect of the workshop, please send them to the above email address.

    Learning Objectives :

    1. Participants will be able to discuss and apply 2 psychodynamic models of development for diagnosis and treatment planning. 
    2.  Participants will learn hypnotic techniques to use with clients for uncovering clinically relevant information. 
    3. Participants will learn through clinical vignettes, demonstration and application of material presented.
