Sorting out Hypnosis, Mindfulness, Psychedelics and Such

Dr. Mau will present a two hour workshop.

There seems to be confusion about the distinctions between mindfulness, hypnosis, meditation, and contemplation and about how they are practiced. For example, the use of hypnotic induction in mindfulness exercises occurs with increasing frequency. How should these tools be utilized in clinical practice and what is the current understanding of how they work? Does psilocybin work by inducing a dissociative phenomenon similar to trance? And how does dissociation and confusion contribute to change thinking and creating new meanings in your life?

The Client’s Vision: Clarifying, Motivating, Powerful

Dr. Mau will present a one hour lecture.

Using the client’s language to create personalized hypnotic processes from induction to emerging is incredibly powerful. Dr. Fredric Mau is a clinical mental health counselor who also serves on a medical faculty teaching hypnosis to psychiatrists. This workshop focuses on practical experiences with clients, modeled by a recognized master therapist. Whether you are crafting each process individually or heavily tailoring scripts – or you just want to do that, this workshop will make your processes more powerful. From pretalk through the entire process Dr. Mau demonstrates his solid approach to help clients create futures which are healed, bright, healthy, and joyful.

Superhero Regression—The Active Wiser You

Dr. Mau will present a two hour workshop.

What if the ways we think about hypnotic regression, and the expectations we create for our clients for this process, are really focused backwards when they can be powerfully focused forward? Regression is a fantastic way to address trauma, but does it have to be problem-focused? This fun, substantive, interactive workshop will explore fresh solution-focused approaches to a tried-and-true hypnotic technique, and open your eyes to new ways to engage your client’s active superhero creativity and self-healing.

Hypnosis for Pain Relief: Practical, Ethical, Neurologically Powerful

Dr. Mau will present a one hour workshop. Physical pain relief is arguably the most effective use of hypnosis. If your client suffers ongoing pain it will make any other issues they are facing worse. Hypnotic pain relief is so powerful that in clinical studies it is effective for even low-suggestible clients. Opioid blockers can block acupuncture- or placebo-based relief, but not hypnotic pain relief. Dr. Mau will demonstrate practical techniques you can use immediately with your clients and describe the neurological basis of pain relief. Hypnosis is a standard of care process in the US – not complimentary or alternative – treatment for physical pain which can be safely and ethically administered by consulting hypnotists. You can understand it and do it!
