Healthy Boundaries

Elaine Perliss

Presented By: Elaine Perliss

Have you or your clients ever said, “I’m a helping, caring, sharing person but often feel overwhelmed, taken advantage of, unappreciated or even abandoned? Do you feel that no matter how much you do, it’s never enough? Are you a perfectionist or strongly self-critical? Is it difficult to ask for what you want or need? Do you feel guilty saying "no" to another’s request for “help,” or just say yes due to a sense of "obligation" or to "please" others? Did you or your clients grow up with trauma, alcohol or other addictions in the home?

If you or your clients answered “yes” to three or more of these, it's likely their struggle to maintain healthy boundaries is standing in the way of their strongest desire for change. Join Elaine Perliss, C.Ht. and discover what healthy boundaries are, how to recognize when your clients are struggling with them and learn powerful tools that can help.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Hypnosis

Lisa Machenberg

Presented By: Lisa Machenberg

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an EVIDENCE BASED therapy that has been shown to reduce anxiety, fears and phobias, stress, sadness, obsessive thinking, and acting out behaviors. It teaches the triad of FEELINGS, THOUGHTS, and ACTIONS. When we change the way we think and act, it will change the way we feel!

In this exciting presentation, you will learn proven techniques and exercises to help your client and yourself have a calmer, more rational life as well as increasing the ability to enjoy the present moment. When CBT tools are combined with relaxation and visualization in hypnosis, you will achieve a faster and longer lasting positive impact with your clients.

The Empty Leash - Hypnosis and the Loss of a Beloved Pet

Mario Pescatore

Presented By: Mario Pescatore

Mario will describe how, as hypnotherapists, we are uniquely qualified to help our clients deal with the loss of their beloved pet in a way that is adaptive, by working with the subconscious mind to help the client find relief, comfort, and ultimately move forward.

The 3 Key Strategies to helping our clients through this seemingly insurmountable climb to normalcy are:

  1. Hypnodetective – exploring their grief process, looking for "hidden symptoms" resulting from the client's state that is a result of their grief, and learning to recognize 8 key signs of grief.
  2. Validation – as family and friends may not understand the scope of the client's grief.
  3. Specific tools and techniques to use in a comprehensive treatment plan, such as Imagery and the 3 Rs to Recovery: Reorganizing, Reinvesting in self-care and Re-engaging in life. Mario will discuss specific Imagery Journeys he has created for pet grief clients.

I applaud Mario's courage to give a class on a topic such as this utilizing the loss of his own beloved pet. I lost my dog Grizelle who lived to be just shy of 17 years of age (three years ago) and I still cannot hold a conversation about her without tearing up.

Thank you Mario, for this heartfelt presentation. I lost a pet almost six years ago to a sudden illness and felt very guilty that I didn't take her to the Vet sooner. I cried for three days almost non-stop. But then I spoke to her spirit and asked her to take the pain away, and I felt it lift away from me. Now she is one of my Angels.

How can I support a client who notices her boundaries are not strong in her relationship? She acknowledges she would not advise her best friend to stay in the romantic relationship she is in. She feels like she can "handle" the situation. I think I give hypnosis to create and follow through with the boundaries she would create for others. I would ask her what she can do to practice healthy boundaries with her partner. Could she take a break, be friends with that person so she can begin to make the healthy boundaries?

This is a great class for anyone that has pets. The loss of a pet is devastating for many of us pet lovers. Mario explains the bond between an animal and it’s human in such a way that even a non animal person could understand and relate to.

Simply perfect. Short, sweet, and to the point. I would advocate for such lectures being accessible and taught from middle school onward. In theory, many would assert such thinking as common sense. In reality, a majority of society falls into situations and or "traps" unbeknownst to themselves. Furthermore, many are unable to identify if they have fallen victim in the past or if presently exist in their lives. It is critical to reinforce the thought processes, methodologies, and self preserving techniques; to best distinguish between our kind behavior verses being manipulated or taken advantage of. A thin line separates the two and unless properly explained from youth, the gray area cannot be easily determined. Albeit, essential lessons for individual happiness. Throughout our life, beginning from the time we are capable of making decisions for ourselves, these tools are invaluable.
