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, working with individuals who experience persistent pain primarily from traumatic injury or illness that interferes with their performance and obtaining quality of life. Originally trained as a Social Worker (Boston University School of Social Work), 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. He has taught a variety of workshops since 1989, covering such topics as the use of imagery in psychotherapy, hypnosis in rehabilitation and behavioral medicine, Psychosynthesis and pain management. 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.
NOTE: will include morning and afternoon breaks
