Improve your knowledge in Clinical Hypnosis and Relaxation with this program, where you will find the best didactic material with real clinical cases. Get to know the latest advances in the specialty to be able to perform a quality psychological praxis"

The main objective of the Professional Master’s Degree in Clinical Hypnosis and Relaxation is to ensure that the psychologist learns to hypnotize his patients in real time, that is to say, that he/she can include Clinical Hypnosis in his/her daily work, and in this way, not only be more effective, but also achieve this effectiveness in less time.

In this program the professional will learn the different modalities known, at this moment, to reach the hypnotic state of the patient. There are three ways of hypnotizing: 

  • The classic techniques, similar to relaxation, are a first way to achieve the hypnotic state, since if in addition to body relaxation, we are able to involve the subject in a mental dissociation, the consequence is a hypnotic state of medium or deep alteration of consciousness 
  • Conversational techniques where an apparent conversation is interspersed with a sophisticated technology in the use of language that allows the listener to enter a hypnotic state, even with open eyes and without the need to concentrate on the hypnotist's voice, as required by classical techniques. This type of techniques were developed mainly by H. Milton Erickson, and later multiple schools such as NLP or Palo Alto MRI added technology to carry it out. In this program we present all the technology on conversational techniques, those that were designed by other models, and those designed by ours
  • Selective Dissociation Focusing Techniques, where mainly the ICM (Induced Head Movements) is the therapy in which without talking to the subject is able to achieve a deep hypnotic state, also in very few minutes. This state of consciousness is achieved by stimulating the ascending reticular system. Achieving very deep hypnotic states without the need for conversation is fundamental in the intervention with young children, the elderly and all those individuals who have trouble concentrating or understanding the language they are being spoken to with
