Marc Davis, Psy.D.D

Augmenting The Therapeutic Toolbox with Focused Mindful Approaches;  Applicable to Preparation Phase in EMDR Therapy

Sponsored by Jill Strunk

Course Description:

You will learn about mindfulness approaches, including “Guided Mindfulness Meditation,” which can also be thought of as Hypnosis.  Marc Davis, an Adlerian and EMDR Therapist and a Hypnotherapist, completed his dissertation on Mindful Approaches, with comparison to Hypnosis.  He will teach techniques for facilitating a trance state in clients, with demos and practice opportunities.  You will also learn ways to deepen the trance state.

He will then discuss many applications of mindfulness/hypnotic techniques, with examples and demos.  This tool can be used very powerfully in the Preparation Phase of EMDR Therapy.

You will become familiar with:

  • hypnotic language;
  • use of metaphor and story;
  • age regression and age progression;
  • quick, effective techniques for relief from stress and anxiety;
  • discovering one’s passion;
  • pain management;
  • dealing with somatic symptoms and enhancing physical healing;
  • and more.

You will learn solutions to use with stuck clients.  Because their life challenges are predicated on mistaken ideas of how they are supposed to act and be, new insights and inner experiences can clarify consequences, free them from limitations, and open new possibilities. Clients will be empowered to make choices congruent with their true selves.
