19th October 2019 (1 days) – When the World Makes Less sense Than It Should: A Positive Psychology Approach to Activating Strengths and Meaning to Leverage Growth

CPD Event title: When the World Makes Less sense Than It Should: A Positive Psychology Approach to Activating Strengths and Meaning to Leverage Growth

Brief Description Of Event: One of the correlates of difficult moments in our lives is that a sense of coherence disappears. We are shocked by what has happened (this appears to be a global issue at this time), or sometimes disappointed in our own choices (that middle-of-the-night difficult assessment of where we seem to have ended up). We may be confronted with situations far out of our control (such as illness or loss of work) or simply aware that the structures or accomplishments that had once made sense to us no longer cohere. We feel lost, discouraged, uncertain, angry and/or weary – and in those states find it difficult to activate resilience. In our day-long exploration of the practices/perspectives of positive psychology we will highlight two: the importance of crafting and re-crafting meaning and the application of character strengths. We’ll examine these in light of the latest research on building internal capacity in order to navigate change with clarity and courage, and we’ll consider how both contribute to greater health within ourselves and in our relationships.

Learning Objectives: Attendees will leave understanding the importance of character strengths and how to integrate them into their practice.

Course Structure: There will be an interactive mix of teaching and exercises.

Date of event: 19th October 2019

Duration of Event: 1 days

The American Psychological Association, consider hypnotherapy is likely to be effective for most people suffering from diverse forms of pain.

• Classifications and types of pain
• Assessing and describing pain
• Emotional influences on pain

25th November 2019 (1 days) – Low Self-Esteem Workshop with Daniel Mirea (BABCP), by the UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy

CPD Event title: Low Self-Esteem Workshop with Daniel Mirea (BABCP), by the UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy

Brief Description Of Event: Low self-esteem is a unique condition characterised by symptoms from both the depressive and the anxiety spectrum; it therefore requires a creative and comprehensive approach that undermines all these varied symptoms.
If we view ‘self-esteem’ as a sense of self, or set of beliefs or rigid opinions that we have about ourselves, significant others and the world around us, then we understand why CBT brings such an important contribution to the overall understanding and the treatment of low self-esteem. This training covers a wide range of CBT topics from introductory through to advanced. The combination of lecture, case studies (video/ audio analysis) and role-play significantly develops skills and knowledge of CBT techniques and provides an effective and cost-efficient investment in your professional development.

Learning Objectives: A deeper understanding of the term ‘low self-esteem’: a term that is commonly used to the extent that it has now become part of our everyday vocabulary.
An in-depth exploration of The Oxford Guide’s description of Low Self Esteem and how that differs from clinical or severe depression – understanding the sphere of competences (in particular for hypnotherapists with no other clinical background)
Understanding what and how other disorders are associated with low moods and low self-esteem, such as depression or social phobia.
Assessment and conceptualisation: the vicious circle (or working model) of low self-esteem -highlighting factors that maintain this condition, such as social withdrawal, common misinterpretations of social interactions and self-critical thinking.
You will be able to understand the assessment and the main working models (or vicious cycles) of low moods, low self-esteem and other associated disorders.
You will understand the self-report measures commonly used with depression and low moods.
The treatment of low mood and low self-esteem: socialising people to the CBT model, psychological education, modifying and challenging dysfunctional assumptions and self-critical thinking. The creative use of behavioural and social experiments as well as imagery work and hypnosis.
You will understand how you could integrate different skills used in the treatment of depressive and anxiety disorders.
The use of other more recent CBT approaches also know as third-wave therapies such as mindfulness and acceptance, imagery, and relaxation.
How to integrate hypnotherapy and self-hypnosis into the Oxford model.
Session structure and session planning.

Course Structure: One-day workshop.

14th December 2019 (1 days) – Hypno-CBT® for Insomnia Workshop, by the UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy

CPD Event title: Hypno-CBT® for Insomnia Workshop, by the UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy

Brief Description Of Event: This one day workshop for therapists will provide sound basic training in treating clients presenting with insomnia and sleeplessness issues. The approach used is based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy integrated with hypnotherapy. CBT for Insomnia (CBTI) is an excellent example of the application of cognitive behavioural therapy and so can become a good introduction to the CBT model. Hypnosis integrates particularly with CBTI – both in terms of inducing rest (leading to sleep) – but also with changing unhelpful habits and associations.
Typically about 35% of people experience insomnia in any given year – and about 18% view the insomnia as serious. Therefore, with this workshop not only can you expand your practice to reach new clients, you can also expand your services to help existing clients.

Learning Objectives: Understand the definitions, diagnosis, prevalence and theoretical models of insomnia
Assess, conceptualise and monitor insomnia
Integrate methods of treatment: stimulus control and sleep reduction, relaxation methods and sleep induction
Integrate hypnotherapy into treatment

Course Structure: Insomnia – definitions, diagnosis, prevalence, theoretical models
CBT Model of Insomnia & Sleep Architecture
Behavioural aspects of insomnia
Cognitive aspects of insomnia
Stimulus Control and Sleep Reduction treatments
Assessment and monitoring
Training in Relaxation Methods and Sleep Induction methods
Integrating hypnotherapy
Dealing with use of alcohol/addiction to sleeping tablets
Use of hypnosis to mitigate impact of sleeplessness
