American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH) conference

I’m delighted to present a pre-conference on Thursday morning, March 16, It Takes More than Two to Tango: Building Secure Attachment through Hypnotic and Ego-State Relationships.” I will also offer a plenary (keynote address) on Relational Safety as THE Treatment for Trauma and Pain: Polyvagal Contributions to the Countertransference Trance also on Thursday.

Other conference highlights include my participation in a panel on the Hypnosis and the Psychotherapy Relationship. These are some of my favorite topics these days. It would be great if you could join me!

And, according to local advertising, there are at least 138 attractions to visit in Orlando—one of my favorites is SeaWorld, though you can have a more intimate experience of holding and swimming with baby dolphins at Discovery Cove. If you have kids, they will find lots of entertainment and so will you (visit here).

Energy Psychology Conference

I am looking forward to attending the Energy Psychology conference sponsored by ACEP (the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology), and one of my favorite events. If you have never attended one of these, I highly recommend that you do.

The lineup of keynotes alone is worth the price of admission: James Oschman, Dawson Church, Tony Robbins, Anodea Judith, Donna Eden and David Feinstein, among others. But there’s much more including 45 2-hour learning labs/ breakout sessions, high quality pre and post conference events, and some new formats this year.

I will be presenting one of the Quantum (TED) talks on Saturday afternoon: “How to Guarantee Success in Trauma Therapy.” Please join us!
