Treating Depression Hypnotically and Strategically:
A 4-Part Webinar
In this training program, Dr. Yapko will discuss:
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic struck Europe, depression was already the most common mood disorder on the continent, just as it is the most common mood disorder in the world. COVID-19 has created a sharp rise in people reporting higher levels of anxiety and depression, which isn’t really very surprising given how often these two disorders are found to co-exist in people. The long-term impact of the COVID-19 world crisis remains to be seen, but already the debilitating anxiety and depression too many people are experiencing is increasing as a result of their sense of isolation, helplessness, and hopelessness. The depression isn’t just in their neurochemistry – no, it’s point of origin is in their circumstances. This observation alone requires us to re-think what we believe about depression, who is vulnerable to it and under what conditions, and most importantly, what to do about it when trying to help others.
Treating Depression Hypnotically and Strategically is a four-part webinar that emphasizes the importance of utilizing proactive and well-targeted interventions when treating depression. How a clinician thinks about the nature of depression and answers fundamental questions - such as what causes depression - naturally determines what treatment approach he or she is most likely to take. Regardless of one’s preferred orientation, however, depression experts agree that treatment needs to be multi-dimensional and active, thus providing an empirical foundation for using hypnosis and strategic interventions. 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 hypnosis.
Dr. Yapko’s well-known books on depression, which include Keys to Unlocking Depression, Depression is Contagious, Hypnosis and Treating Depression, Breaking the Patterns of Depression and Hand-Me-Down Blues, each break new ground and challenge much of the conventional wisdom therapists typically hold about depression and its treatment. In this webinar, we will pay special attention to the ways in which our social lives directly shape our perspectives and phenomenology and thereby powerfully affect the way we think and feel.
Our relationships can depress us and they can heal us. The cutting edge of rapidly expanding scientific evidence highlights that the more we learn about the biology of depression, the more important psychology and social life experience become in understanding and treating it effectively. How therapy, itself a social process, can teach skills known to reduce and even prevent depression will be explored in depth. Lecture, discussion, case examples, and structured skill-building hypnosis practice sessions will be provided during the training. A primary goal is for attendees to further evolve their skills in applying hypnosis in the treatment of depression.
