CPD Event title: Pain management for hypnotherapists
Brief Description Of Event: This workshop gives participants an opportunity to explore the theory and practice of pain management using a range of hypnotherapy approaches and learning how to promote self- management and self-care beyond the hypnotherapy session, thus empowering the client.
For many years, those experiencing pain were treated within the ‘biomedical’ model. The emergence of the ‘biopsychosocial’ model offers a broader range of treatment and management options, including hypnotherapy. As chronic pain is estimated to affect between one-third and one-half of the population of the UK, hypnotherapists will benefit from having a range of pain management tools to work with both chronic and acute pain. The American Psychological Association, consider hypnotherapy is likely to be effective for most people suffering from diverse forms of pain.
Learning Objectives: Participants will explore the theory and practice of pain management including:
• Classifications and types of pain
