Special Course Offering for Summer 2018

COUN 5088/7340 Clinical Hypnosis Applications
Prof: Dr. Rick Bruhn

"Hypnosis is the epitome of mind-body medicine. It can enable the mind to tell the body how to react and modify the messages that the body sends to the mind." - New York Times

This is a 3-credit hour course that meets at the Teacher Education Center in Huntsville on nine Wednesday evenings, and on-line assignments from 4:30 to 8:50.

Come learn a new skill to help your clients and a new self-care skill.

Students will develop an understanding of clinical hypnosis as applied to counseling and clinical work. In class Dr. Bruhn will rely heavily on discussion and large amounts of experiential exercises involving hypnotic induction processes in both individual and small groups. Students (and instructor) will practice the roles of hypnotic operator and client. The instructor will demonstrate hypnotic inductions for the class to observe and discuss. Each student will be expected to develop his or her own skills with hypnotic inductions and the use of hypnotic principles in counseling situations.

Students are expected to be highly active participants in the course.  While there is plenty of reading involved, there is an emphasis on experiential activities and written reflections related to course objectives.
