This workshop will provide a description and demonstration of a strategy – the Hypnotic Reflective Listening technique — for identifying effective hypnotic suggestions for helping clients more effectively achieve their behavior change goals. It will begin with a brief presentation of research findings demonstrating the central role that client’s “self-talk” (i.e., self-suggestions) plays in facilitating or suppressing goal attainment. The facilitator will then demonstrate the use of two strategies (open questions and reflective listening) to identify the helpful self-suggestions (to be nurtured) and less than helpful self-suggestions (to be gently altered). Participants will then be encouraged to practice the strategies to increase their confidence in being able to use the technique in their practice. After the workshop, participants will be able to: (1) understand the role that automatic thoughts (also known as “self-suggestions”) play in an individual’s psychological function and behavior; (2) be able to use two specific techniques to increase the frequency of a client’s adaptive automatic self-suggestions, including the use of (a) open questions and (b) reflective listening; and (3) be able to use the adaptive self-suggestions identified in the context of a formal hypnosis session to enhance outcome efficacy.
