Evoking Positive Emotional States

Uplifting Interventions to Heal the Heart and Rewire the Brain

Courtney Armstrong

Research from brain science and positive psychology shows that activating positive emotional states is the fastest route to instilling hope, stimulating creativity, spurring motivation, and empowering our clients. But how do you help clients access resourceful states when they’re feeling hopeless and helpless? In this session, you’ll discover how to gently lead discouraged clients into heartening experiences that enable them to reclaim inner states of peace, strength, joy, and vitality. You’ll learn why helping your clients generate positive emotional states is an essential part of healing that rewires old patterns and helps new patterns stick. Moreover, you’ll have opportunities to evoke your own uplifting states through experiential activities. You’ll discover how to:

  • Use imagery techniques to elicit desired emotions and engender positive feelings towards the self and the future
  • Frame ideas, questions, and other interventions in ways that foster hope and boost motivation
  • Craft music and movement interventions that lift depression, calm anxiety, and empower traumatized clients
  • Use playful interventions that optimize learning and reinforce new behaviors

Healing with Hypnosis

Gentle Protocols for Rewiring the Brain

Courtney Armstrong

Hypnosis is making a comeback as research demonstrates its effectiveness in relieving anxiety, resolving traumatic memories, breaking habitual patterns, and reducing chronic pain. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to safely guide your clients into hypnotic states, effectively frame suggestions, clear subconscious blocks, and activate the client’s own healing responses. Find out why hypnosis is an effective tool for influencing subcortical areas of the brain, and learn the art of communicating with the subconscious using metaphor, multisensory language, and Ericksonian-inspired utilization techniques. You may even experience your own transformative trance with live demonstrations and experiential activities. You’ll discover how to:

  • Use at least three inductions that safely guide clients into hypnotic states
  • Craft direct and indirect suggestions for relieving anxiety, reducing pain, and breaking habitual patterns
  • Resolve traumatic memories safely and painlessly using a simple five-step protocol
  • Observe hypnotic phenomena and explain how hypnosis changes the brain
