Jim Rymer - Hypnosis for young people with a forensic history

‘Forensic’, refers to those at risk of becoming involved with the Police or Courts, and those that have committed offences and are already serving a sentence in prison or a secure unit. My special interest is with young people, so I will be looking specifically at this population and how hypnosis can be used to help treat impulse control as well as other presenting problems, that may have led them to commit crimes. In this talk, I will look briefly at the different approaches that I have found work and some information about important legal issues. We will have a crash course on the role of attachment and why hypnotherapists should have a good grounding in this area.

Dr Greta Ross - Recognising and working with PTSD and trauma

Greta's presentation on Trauma will briefly include the following: • recognising the disabling sequelae of trauma (including PTSD) • why hypnosis can be helpful in dealing with the sequelae of trauma • hypnotic approaches that can be useful in working with ‘trauma’ patients
