Pain Management and Hypnosis: Add to Your Clinical Skills

October 7, 2016 @ 8:00 am

$105 – $115

Alternative Treatments for Pain Management Using Hypnosis, October 7th, 2016

Co-Sponsored by the Cincinnati Academy of Professional Psychology and The Cincinnati Society of Clinical Hypnosis


An internationally known expert on pain management, Dabney Ewin, M.D., is Clinical Professor of Surgery and Psychiatry at Tulane University School of Medicine. He utilizes alternative techniques to manage pain, beyond prescription medication. Dr. Ewin has presented this topic at the National Conventions of The American Society of Clinical Hypnosis and The Society of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis.

Clinical hypnosis is used to treat many psychological and mental health issues as well as physical problems. Join us to learn how these techniques can help you and your client. This workshop will be especially helpful for those professionals who have clients who struggle with chronic pain and/or overuse pain medication. All mental health professionals deal with clients who have medical issues (psychosomatic or otherwise) and can benefit from complementary interventions such as hypnosis.

Attendees will learn how to identify five different types of pain and will learn hypnotic and other alternative therapeutic techniques for pain management. These methods of intervention will be presented with an emphasis on the psychopathology of psychosomatic disorders and other related mental health diagnoses as related to pain. Video examples will be utilized to illustrate how to use these new intervention techniques.



  • Identify five (5) different types of pain, and the most effective hypnotic techniques to treat each type.
  • Participants will learn common causes of psychosomatic disorders, and the hypnotic treatment for each.
  • Describe the remarkable effect of early hypnosis on the course of both psychological and physical treatment such as anxiety and burn treatment.
  • Recognize the potential danger to the patient of “letting the inmates run the asylum”, i.e., better manage the pain patient’s exposure to the stress of standard medical treatment protocols.
