Techniques of Age Regression and Age Progression: Research, Theory, Techniques- Applications and Practice! Practice! Practice! Maureen Turner, MEd, LCMHC, RNBC, LCSW
An Age Regression technique is any technique that connects present belief and behavior to the past and past to the present and encourages insight. Hypnosis can augment that connection to belief change and therefore, behavior change. The main focus will be to teach, apply and practice the techniques most utilized, adapted and developed by the presenter and now used by colleagues she has trained in the practice of Age Regression hypnosis.
Hypnosis has been utilized for trauma-release intuitively cross-culturally for centuries (Harms, 1967). In 2007, Lynn and Cardena reviewed empirically supported evidence-based principles and practices that suggests that hypnosis can be a useful adjunctive procedure in the treatment of post-traumatic conditions. Their conclusion was that more research on hypnosis, hypnotic-suggestibility, and post-traumatic conditions is urgently needed. This workshop will briefly review the still sparse hypnosis research in applications fostering connections from the past to present and future (Rotaru and Rusu, 2016; Turner, 2016, 2017, 2018; Grogan, Barabasz, and Christensen, 2017).
The applications of theory and techniques will include:
Assessing for timing and conditions for age regression.
Deepening inductions that can also double for self-hypnosis, such as the Elman-Turner and Chakra Inductions.
Teaching clients to anchor positive mind states and set triggers for self-soothing self-talk.
Demonstrating techniques that help facilitate age regression like the Somatic-Affect Bridge, adaptations of the Meeting Room, the Magic Sieve and Turner’s Rescue Mission protocols.
Handouts, demonstrations, videos, case presentations, supervised experiential exercises, practice and practice will be included in the workshop experience.
State timing issues and three conditions where age regression would be appropriate treatment.
Describe techniques to induce and deepen to induction, for both use as self-hypnosis for the client and a means of establishing a deep trance state by the therapist.
Describe how to anchor positive mind states and set them to be triggered for self-soothing self-talk.
Describe the Turner Rescue Mission and describe the roles of the therapist and the client .
Demonstrate at least 2 technique(s) to facilitate age regression.
