The SCEH Webinar Series allows busy health care professionals to obtain high quality clinical hypnosis training that is convenient, reasonably priced, and includes continuing education (CE) credit for licensure or certification.  Led by hypnosis experts, topics are varied and designed to impart actionable insights that can be employed immediately with patients.  SCEH Webinars are co-sponsored by SCEH and the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. All webinars will offer 1.5 APA CE credits for Psychologists and 1.5 BBS CEUs for Counselors and Social Workers. 

At present, live participation is required. SCEH and the TCSPP are in the process of building a recorded library of our webinars which will eventually be accessible for later viewing, 24/7. We hope to roll this out later in 2020, pending transition to a new platform.  Watch this page or sign up for our email list to receive updates.

About the Webinar

Many Americans are reporting anxiety and a sense of stress about the COVID-19 pandemic. The health threat, the disruption of usual schedules and activities, and the lack of control over rapidly changing life-events all are undermining individual's sense of safety and self-confidence. Rapid fire media attention to the global impact of the pandemic is heightening the sense of urgency and threat for the general public. Individuals with pre-existing emotional and psychiatric disorders are reporting exacerbations of their symptoms and usually calm individuals are reporting preoccupation and anxiety.
 
This webinar will bring together leading mental health experts from North American universities to discuss coping strategies, self-care skills, and lifestyle supports for emotional and physical well-being. The presenters will provide attendees with practical skills applicable for their own lives and also for their patients/clients/students.
The COVID-19 pandemic is a major threat to individuals and communities, with serious health impact and dramatic economic impact. Nevertheless, this threat can provide a useful opportunity for each person to consider current coping and to adopt new self-care habits that will provide a pathway for improved well-being long-term.

2020 Series

 

 

Friday, March 6, 2020 -- Hypnosis for Chronic Pain: Maximizing Comfort

Mark P. Jensen, PhD, University of Washington, Seattle, WA

Overview:  This 1.5-hour webinar will provide an overview of hypnotic strategies and suggestions for helping individuals better self-manage chronic pain conditions. It will begin with a discussion of the neurophysiology of nociception and pain, focusing on nine specific processes and physiological structures involved in pain perception, that can be influenced by hypnotic suggestions. Evidence regarding pain’s impact on other functioning domains (e.g., activity level, sleep, mood) will be discussed, and ideas for hypnotic suggestions and approaches for addressing all of these domains and processes will be generated.

Next, the facilitator will describe what is currently known about the etiology and factors that contribute to pain associated with a number of common chronic pain conditions (specifically, headache, chronic widespread pain, low back pain, neuropathic pain, and complex regional pain syndrome), and how hypnosis can be tailored to treat each one. The webinar will end with a demonstration showing how clinicians can target hypnotic suggestions tailored to the needs of a specific patient.

About the Presenter:  Mark P. Jensen, PhD, is a Professor and Vice Chair for Research in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine who has been studying chronic pain and helping individuals better manage chronic pain for 40 years. He has been funded by the National Institutes of Health and other funding agencies to study the efficacy and mechanisms of various treatments for chronic pain, including hypnotic analgesia. He has published extensively (over 500 articles and book chapters) on the topics of pain assessment and treatment. His guidebook on the use of hypnosis for chronic pain management and an accompanying patient manual in the Oxford University Press “Treatments that Work” series (Hypnosis for Chronic Pain Management: Therapist Guide) co-won (along with David Patterson’s book, Clinical Hypnosis for Pain Control) the 2011 Society of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis Arthur Shapiro Award for Best Book on Hypnosis.
