about this item
From the initial interview to creating the best metaphors, Using Hypnosis with Children is a practical, step-by-step guide that shows health care providers (including therapists, nurses, pediatricians, dentists, and educators) how to create and deliver hypnotic interventions that are customized and effective into their pediatric clinical work, with utilization and flexibility as key components to an overall treatment approach. Using case examples of language for all age groups, readers learn first how to identify the salient targets or themes, deliver a session that hits these targets with precision, and then connect the session to the child's everyday experience. More broadly, readers learn to use hypnosis as a way to help create new neural pathways, teach self-regulation, introduce a more internal locus of control, and develop positive interpersonal experiences.Chapters focus on the most common issues families face, including anxiety, depression, medical procedures/pain, and sleep.

Individual sessions are discussed, as well as how hypnosis can help with specificproblems such as anxiety, depression, divorcing parents, and habits like thumb sucking, bedwetting, and lackof motivation.
