Presented by Philip R. Appel, PhD
Dr. Appel is the Director of the Psychology Service of the National Rehabilitation Hospital in Washington, DC and has been with the hospital since 1987. Originally trained as a Social Worker (Boston University), his first clinical position was as a Behavioral Science Officer in the US Army. After 4 years of active duty, the Army awarded him a full scholarship to pursue doctoral studies in clinical psychology. He attended the United States International University in San Diego, interned at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, and then completed another 4 years of active duty. Dr. Appel’s approach to clinical work is greatly influenced by Gestalt therapy and Psychosynthesis as well as Eastern Philosophical approaches to consciousness. He has written extensively about the use of hypnosis in physical medicine and rehabilitation and has several chapters in professional books, as well as articles in the American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis. Dr. Appel is a Fellow of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis and an ASCH Past-President. He is listed in the National Register for Health Service Providers in Psychology, and is licensed in both Maryland and the District of Columbia.
Psychosynthesis is one of the first Western transpersonal models of personality and psychotherapy. It was developed in 1910 by the Italian psychiatrist Roberto Assagioli. In this workshop, basic constructs involving the realms of consciousness, subpersonalities (ego-states), and the importance of the will, and the neo-Jungian functions, will be introduced and related to the practice of hypnotically mediated psychotherapy. That which makes this model unique is its recognition of the human spirit and how that impacts consciousness and its inclusion as an important element to be included in therapy. A guideline for selecting interventions based upon the patient’s symptom will be described as well as a discussion of some of the therapy techniques associated with this model. This workshop will be experiential as well as didactic.
This workshop will explore one model for the treatment of suffering as it relates to lasting medical illness and injury. We will explore concepts of suffering and look at a multistage model for restoring a sense of self, as it transcends the narrative self to promote an identification with the agent self, to repair the narcissistic wound that arose in the face of disability. We will look at the self-regulation skills necessary not only in the sensory, cognitive, and affective realms, but in awareness training as well to promote acceptance. We will discuss the involvement of ego states and how the transforming power of empathy and compassion directed toward self brings about a reproach met within and does much to ameliorate the experience of suffering.
NOTE: The schedule will include morning and afternoon breaks, lunch at noon on Saturday (provided by FSCH) and lunch at noon on Sunday (on your own).
