OVERVIEW

This event will discuss methods of using hypnosis/imagery for symptom management at End-of-Life as well as clinical interventions for working with parents and children through a terminal illness.

Learning Goals:
  • Participants will build a toolbox of interventions for dissemination in individual and group-based practice settings for work with anticipatory grief and early stage bereavement.
  • Participants will develop skills to communicate effectively and therapeutically with children to prepare them for the death of a loved one.
  • Participants will build skills to apply hypnotic techniques and interventions to assist patients with symptom management associated with chronic illness, including anxiety and pain.
