- Part one of this course (9 AM- 2 PM), led by Terri Haaga, will provide an overview of Stress, what the common symptoms are, how it can impact older adults and ways to intervene. Time will be spent gaining a basic understanding of the neurobiology of stress and how our clients can become mindful of their stress reactions. Easy to learn stress reduction and mindfulness techniques will be discussed and practiced throughout the course. Case examples will be utilized throughout the class. Part two (2-4 PM), led by Ryan Larsen, will be an introduction to guided meditation and trance. This section is intended to demystify hypnosis and trance states, teach clinicians how to use a trance based approach to help their clients deeply relax, and serve as a step off point for clinicians who want to go deeper into the subject of trance states or even go on to be hypnotherapists.
