Treating Depression Hypnotically and Strategically emphasizes the importance of utilizing proactive and well-targeted interventions when treating depression. How you as a clinician think about the nature of depression and answers fundamental questions - such as what causes depression - naturally determine what treatment approach you are most likely to take.
But regardless of your preferred orientation, depression experts agree that treatment needs to be multi-dimensional and active. Furthermore, the more we learn about the neuroscience of depression, especially neuroplasticity and neurogenesis, the more important well designed experiential learning processes become in treatment. These include the use of task assignments and focusing processes such as hypnosis.

Depressed people tend to ruminate on the same thoughts, focus their attention in the same direction and do the same things over and over again (like stay in bed). This presentation will show you how these things are like creating and reinforcing a “bad trance”-like state and how to use our modern knowledge of the brain to come up with some simple, yet powerful interventions to start to give depressed people traction out of their bleak state.

The aim of this workshop is to present innovative and effective hypnotherapeutic techniques for the management of depression. Hypnosis is a powerful modality that can help your clients manage their symptoms by altering the cognitive, emotional, behavioral and physical responses that accompany depression. As such, it can be a powerful adjunct to both cognitive and behavioral treatments for depression. Mental health professionals from all backgrounds can enhance their clinical repertoire with the hypnotherapeutic adjuncts provided, and offer clients quick, easy-to-implement techniques to treat depression.

Much depression results from grieving a loss, which can take many forms. It can be a loss of a person/relationship, a location, a treasured activity, information, or a physical object. It can even be the loss of something that someone never actually had, except as a treasured anticipated dream. Grief results from thinking of the loss as distant, resulting in a feeling of emptiness. Resolution occurs when the person reunites with the treasured memory so that it is present in their experience, with all the positive feelings.

In this presentation I will invite you to explore into what hypnosis in general and solution hypnosis in particular can contribute to this question, how we can explore ways to more respectfully adapt our approach to the uniqueness of each individual client’s experience of depression by exploring what might be missing for them and helping them to reconnect with whatever this may be so they can then find their own solution often in a surprisingly rapid and permanent way.
The issue of self care will also be addressed. That is, how to avoid getting depressed yourself.

In this briefing, clinicians will learn a simple form of self-hypnosis (autogenic training) that is shown to greatly reduce relapse. We will also cover studies of meditation and depression recovery to show why this skill is so useful to you as a caring clinician.

Some rare and highly impactful presentations from our extensive library of presentations:
A Kaleidoscopic View of Utilization" by Helen Erickson, PhD
"Most Ericksonian practitioners have adopted the concept of Utilization as the foundation for their practice. Yet many still discuss it from the perspective of what the practitioner does with the client. An alternative perspective is that utilization is a way of thinking about the client. The first emphasizes the work of the therapist, the second emphasizes the client's world view as a foundation for the therapist's work. This presentation explores the relationship and implications for the two perspectives."

Gabrielle Peacock, MD: Starting In The Middle: Ericksonian Hypnosis For Psychosis
Several people asked whether hypnosis should or should not be used with people labeled "psychotic" or with other such labels. In this bonus presentation Gabrielle Peacock shares her experience of working with human beings with various levels of what she calls "a mastery at dissociation" and what the medical model might call psychosis, bipolar, or the dissociative spectrum disorders. Many of her strategies are useful with people labeled "depressed."
