Course Descriptions

 

Introduction to Using Hypnotherapy with Children

Four 90 min On-Line Modules & A pre-recorded Audio Talk

This course is available in February, March/April, and October 2017

 

overview

The Introductory course will comprise 4 x 90 minute sessions plus one pre-recorded audio talk over a period of 4 weeks 

There will be a mixture of informal lecture, examples of case study and student question (via instant messaging) and answer

The online training will help you identify and be prepared for the differences in approach between working with adults and working with children. It offers general principles, guidelines and good practice for the safety and protection of child and therapist alike

By using a solution focused approach it seems that often as much therapy can take place outside the trance as inside the trance. It is important to be aware of the expectations of all concerned (including your own) and to expect the unexpected and be able to use your own creativity and imagination.

  • GENERAL PRINCIPLES AND GUIDELINES
  • DIFFERENCES YOU WILL FIND BETWEEN ADULTS AND CHILDREN
  • THE IMPORTANCE OF PRE-SESSION EXPLANATION TO PARENTS

The New ‘Mindcraft Miracle Solution’

Single 90 min On-Line Module

This class is available in March and July 2017

 

There is an on-line game loved by millions of children worldwide between the ages of 7 or 8 years to about 12 or 13 years, maybe older too! The game involves the idea of building imaginary worlds and creating fun activities.

Lynda has developed a way to capture the child's interest in creating their own imaginary parallel world and she has used this to great effect with a variety of issues in the children's therapy room. She shares her ideas with you in the webinar.

How to treat Nocturnal Enuresis

Single On-Line 90 min Module

This class is available in March 2017

 

Nocturnal Enuresis is, by its very nature, a problem that reoccurs with each new young generation. It causes great distress to children and causes parental anxiety on behalf of their children. Naturally it is also a source of considerable inconvenience to both parents and children. Although hypnotherapy is not the answer in every single case of enuresis (because there are many different causes and different degrees of receptivity to the approach), it can be remarkably effective for very many children. If you can become skilled in treating this problem you will not only relieve a great deal of stress, you will create a niche market for your services

Overview

There will be a mixture of informal lecture, examples of case study and student question (via instant messaging) and answer

YOU WILL LEARN

  • POSSIBLE CAUSES OF NOCTURNAL ENURESIS

  • ADVICE TO PARENTS ON HOW TO SUPPORT YOUR THERAPY
  • APPROPRIATE INDUCTIONS
  • TWO NOCTURNAL ENURESIS SCRIPTS

You will take away

There will be student notes to support the session and two scripts for use in your therapy

ATTENDANCE CERTIFICATE

Each participant who attends the session, either in person or via the recorded version, will receive a certificate of attendance

The workshop assumes knowledge and skill using a variety of hypnotic approaches with adults

 

How to treat Selective Eating 

Two On-Line 90 min Modules

This course is available in May and November 2017

 

Selective Eating is quite a tricky problem to deal with as there is generally a tremendous amount of anxiety in both the children and the parents. Mealtimes obviously are often occasions of great emotional stress for all and at least part of the treatment will normally involve persuading parents (very tactfully) to support your work by changing their own approach.
The problem is very rarely resolved in a single session so we will look at some different interventions to be used over a few sessions. As with the treatment of Nocturnal Enuresis, if you can become skilled in treating this problem you will not only relieve a great deal of stress, you will create a niche market for your services

Overview

There will be a mixture of informal lecture, examples of case study and student question (via instant messaging) and answer

YOU WILL LEARN

  • Possible causes of Selective Eating
  • Likely characteristics of children with this disorder
  • The importance of pre-session explanation to parents
  • How this issue can affect family life
  • Questions you need to ask
  • Appropriate aims for Hypnotherapy treatment
  • Advice to parents on how to support their child
  • Advice to parents on how to support your therapy
  • Appropriate inductions and interventions

YOU WILL take away

There will be student notes to support the session and a selection of scripts and strategies for use in your therapy

ATTENDANCE CERTIFICATE

Each participant who attends the sessions, either in person or via the recorded versions, will receive a certificate of attendance for CPD purposes

 The workshop assumes knowledge and skill using a variety of hypnotic approaches with adults and preferably a little experience in working with children

How to treat Tics and Tourette Syndrome

Two On-Line 90 min Modules

This course is available in November 2017

Childhood tics are quite common and, as parents learn more about the benefits of hypnotherapy, there are increasing numbers of children who present with Transient or Chronic tics, and Tourette Syndrome. You will be given background information about the conditions, different aspects and some of the frequently occurring variations which can accompany them. Tics are rarely resolved in a single session so we will look at some different interventions to be used over a few sessions. In the case of Tourette Syndrome, depending on the severity of the problem, it may be more of a case of managing the condition over time. We will also look at the importance of finding the appropriate approach for different personalities

Overview

There will be a mixture of informal lecture, examples of case study and student question (via instant messaging) and answer

YOU WILL LEARN

  • POSSIBLE ORIGINS OF MOTOR AND VOCAL TICS
  • CHARACTERISTICS OF TICS
  • TRANSIENT AND CHRONIC TICS
  • DIAGNOSTIC DIFFERENCES
  • QUESTIONS YOU NEED TO ASK
  • RECOGNIZING POSSIBLE LIMITATIONS OF TREATMENT

The workshop assumes knowledge and skill using a variety of hypnotic approaches with adults and preferably a little experience in working with children

How to treat Selective Mutism 

Two On-Line 90 min Modules

This course is available in November/December 2017

Selective Mutism has become more acknowledged recently and therefore more distressed parents are bringing their children for treatment, usually after much ineffective searching for informed help. By learning more and becoming expert in treating this condition you can help very anxious children and parents cope with this distressing condition and also create a niche market for yourself This workshop will look at this area in the children’s consulting room which is less well understood than most and takes careful handling during treatment

overview

There will be a mixture of informal lecture, examples of case study and student question (via instant messaging) and answer

YOU WILL LEARN 

  • Possible causes of Selective Mutism
  • What it is and what it is not
  • Symptoms and associated behaviours

  • Conventional treatment v Hypnotherapy treatment
  • Appropriate aims for Hypnotherapy treatment

Comments on the Selective Mutism
On-line training

''I really enjoyed today's training session with Lynda Hudson on Selective Mutism. A fascinating subject that goes largely under the radar. Lynda's knowledge and guidance over the topic was excellent. I am really looking forward to ongoing distance training from Lynda as it is a platform that works so well on very many levels. The quality of the handouts was superb and I just need to crack on with my assignments now to get my CPD certificate. Thanks Lynda''!!!

Sally McHugh

 ''What a brilliant training session on Selective Mutism with the lovely Lynda Hudson today. I have a personal interest in this little known disorder and found Lynda to be a very knowledgeable lady on the subject. The webinar went off without a hitch and the time flew by. The accompanying notes were comprehensive and easy to follow and I can't wait for part 2 on case studies. Thanks again Lynda and I look forward to doing more training with you in the future.''
