Hypnotic Techniques to Elicit Memory Reconsolidation
Transforming Traumatic Memories with Hypnosis and Memory Reconsolidation- ASCH ASMW Conference
March 5, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 1:15 pm
Can traumatic memories really be changed so they no longer haunt a person emotionally? Neuroscience research suggests they can by harnessing the mechanism of memory reconsolidation, the brain’s own process of updating an emotional memory with new meanings and associations. In this presentation, Courtney Armstrong will get you up to date on this exciting discovery, explain why clinical hypnosis is a natural tool for eliciting memory reconsolidation, then demonstrate a simple five-step protocol you can use that integrates clinical hypnosis with cognitive-behavioral techniques to safely resolve traumatic memories and foster client resilience.
After this training you’ll be better able to:
Describe the difference between implicit and explicit memory.
Summarize research regarding memory reconsolidation and its clinical implications for treatment.
Discuss how and when to safely use age regression to resolve traumatic memories without retraumatizing your client.
Demonstrate 2 metaphorical imagery, ego-strengthening, and age progression techniques that elicit client strengths and change implicit beliefs driving unwanted patterns.
“Out of all the workshops I have gone to in recent memory, this workshop was the most informative applicable. I learned many new skills and ways of approaching therapy – something I can actually use. I find that piece to often be lacking in the seminars I’ve been to. Courtney’s attitude, teaching style, use of role plays, media, etc. it was great!”
— Becky DavidsonLCSW, Chattanooga, Tennessee
"I have attended numerous trainings by Courtney. She’s an amazing therapist, inspiring and understanding trainer, and an incredible writer. Courtney brings everything she knows from the therapeutic process to neuroscience and makes it all understandable and interesting. Anyone who gets a chance to train with her, see her professionally, or read one of her books will be glad they did!”
— Tara DickherberLPC, St. Charles, Missouri
"May I take this opportunity to say that taking Courtney’s online course has been – hands down – one of the best decisions I’ve made both professionally and personally. She has a way of teaching that is not only informative but also engaging and accessible. What I’ve learned has already made a huge difference in my practice and outlook."

"Courtney presented one of the most profitable workshops I have ever attended on trauma. The insights are brilliant. Thank you for a superlative experience.”
— Alan BattlePh. D, ABPP Chief, Division of Clinical Psychology, UT Medical Group
"I have known Courtney for some time and find her to be skilled as a presenter/speaker, deeply knowledgeable about her subject area (resilience and traumatic stress among other areas), and in general one of the kindest and generous people you could meet. I hope you get a chance to see or read her work."
