In spite of distinctly different histories, Biofeedback and Clinical Hypnosis have long been considered twin pillars in the field of self-regulation.Both are primarily adjunctive techniques which provide patients with skills that promote self-empowerment and enhance self-regulation skills. This workshop with introduce new opportunities to select when hypnosis or biofeedback might be a preferred modality and when the combination of these two approaches may be the best approach. Relevant research will be reviewed and video and live demonstrations will be used to provide examples of each approach. Core elements of clinical hypnosis will be reviewed along with recommendations for developing a fully integrative approach to providing care for those suffering from chronic pain and related disorders.
Professionals who complete this webinar will be able to:
- Summarize basic hypnosis theory and technique.
- Observe demonstrations of both biofeedback and hypnosis applied to pain management and related problems.
- Differentiate when biofeedback or hypnosis might be the preferred approach to treatment.
- Be able to design client-centered approaches to pain management.

While AAPB works to assure fair treatment for all participants and attempts to anticipate problems, there will be occasional issues which will require intervention and/or action on the part of AAPB. This procedural description serves as a guideline for handling such grievances. When a participant, either orally or in written format, files a grievance and expects action on the issue, the following actions will be taken: 1. If the grievance concerns a speaker, the content presented by the speaker, or the style of presentation, the individual filing the grievance will be asked to put his/her comments in written format. The CE Coordinator will then pass on the comments to the speaker, assuring the confidentiality of the grieved individual. 2. If the grievance concerns a workshop offering, its content, level of presentation, or the facilities in which the workshop was offered, the CE Coordinator will mediate and will be the final arbitrator. If the participant requests action during a workshop or conference, the CE Coordinator or his/her representative will: a. attempt to move the participant to another presentation or; b. provide a credit for a subsequent presentation or; c. provide a partial or full refund of the registration fee. Actions 2b and 2c will require a written note, documenting the grievance, for record keeping purposes. The note need not be signed by the grieved individual. 3. If the grievance concerns the business practices of AAPB, in a specific regard, the CE Coordinator will attempt to arbitrate. There is no commercial support for this program nor are there any relationships between the CE Sponsor, presenting organization, presenter, program content, research, grants, or other funding that could reasonably be construed as conflicts of interest.
