Dr. Wagaman’s professional interests include behavioral health and medical applications of clinical hypnosis, teaching and supervision of clinical hypnosis practice, pain management, behavioral health contributions to management of chronic medical disorders, comorbidity of medical and psychological difficulties, geriatric behavioral health assessment and care, behavioral and behavioral medicine education and training, and health care ethics.  

Why is This Workshop Important?
As health care continues to move toward enhanced integration and collaboration, it is increasingly important to understand not only how health care disciplines other than our own practice, but the ways in which those practices complement or augment our own, as well as intervention strategies that improve treatment outcomes.  Clinicians who include hypnosis skills in their practices already understand the care-enhancing advantages of clinical hypnosis. This workshop will review, and consider possible alternative views of, some important foundational understandings about hypnotic communication and consider how trance is actually influenced. The importance of rapport, specifically with respect to the use of hypnosis, and clinician perceptions, and the influence of, resistance in the health care relationship will also be addressed. Descriptions and demonstrations of advanced trance inductions and intensification strategies will include a variety of modalities. Finally, the use of clinical hypnosis for symptom management or change in medicine and behavioral health care will be discussed using pain management as a basic framework for demonstrating the range of hypnotic strategies to effect symptom change generally in health care.  This workshop is appropriate for clinicians with at least basic understanding of, and experience with, clinical hypnosis in practice and will include lecture, discussion, demonstration, and participant experiential and practice opportunities.
