Lecturer: Peter Mabbutt

The 'inner child' is a concept found within many therapeutic traditions, and is one that helps explain the development of personality over time. In a healthy functioning individual, the 'inner child' is functionally integrated into the personality. However, when maladaptive and dysfunctional integration occurs, or where the 'inner child' is damaged during or after creation, then a variety of dissociative, behavioural and cognitive issues occur. Traditionally associated with the resolution of sexual abuse, the 'inner child' idea has evolved to encompass many non-trauma related issues and can now be applied, for example, to performance enhancement approaches.

This CPD event will explore ways of effectively working with your own and your patient's 'inner child'. It will also look at the 'inner child' in relation to the psychopathology of a variety of presenting symptoms to encourage an opening up of perspectives for treatment.

This CPD event is open to all hypnotherapists who want to gain an in-depth understanding of this powerful hypnotherapeutic approach.
