Presented by OSCH President Debbie Bensching LCSW, This workshop will review information related to the clinical applications, prerequisites, and contraindications of using exploratory, insight oriented, and uncovering techniques to address a range of clinical conditions. Debbie will bring a trauma informed lens to applications of 4 or more hypnotic exploratory and uncovering techniques that will be presented for use in clinical practice. These techniques can be used with a range of clients with or without a trauma background. Factors in decision making for technique choice will serve as the basis for discussing treatment options and clinical applications.

- Describe rational for using hypnotic exploratory and uncovering techniques.
