Hypnosis Falsely Blamed

Presented By: Bruce Bonnett, CCHt

Bruce Bonnett

Did you know that in 2011 a Florida high school principal was falsely blamed and criminally charged for the deaths of three teenage students who did hypnosis with him? This story is back in the headlines right now in 2023 because AMC Networks and Sundance TV just recently released a 4-part documentary series about it.

Clients, prospective clients, and parents of teenagers might ask you about this news story that has gained national attention. In this presentation, Bruce Bonnet, former lawyer, HMI/AOS Graduate and Senior Staff Instructor, will share with you the details of this fascinating story. You will learn why hypnosis did not cause these teenagers’ deaths, and some valuable lessons about how to keep yourself safe from possible, sensationalized media stories about hypnosis.

Introduction to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Presented By: Randy Kasper

AOS Professor Randy Kasper, PhD, LCSW will introduce the basics of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is credited with being the most research-backed psychotherapy modality to date; in fact, it is often referred to as the most popular EBP (Evidence-Based Practice). It can be used in a wide variety of settings and is especially helpful with practitioners and clients who appreciate a highly structured, short-term approach.

In this introductory presentation, Dr. Kasper will present the basic theoretical ideas that inform Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, outline CBT techniques that any practitioner can immediately integrate into their practice, and offer clear and simple CBT exercises that participants can use for their own benefit.

HMI Student and Graduate Tips for Creating More Ease and Success

Presented By: Shay Austin, CCHt

Shay Austin

In this presentation, HMI/AOS Graduate and HMI Associate Instructor, Shay Austin, CCHt shares learned experiences she and her students in Practicum Workshops have navigated during the HMI program. But these experiences aren’t in the manual or the classroom. These involve your choices, how to balance such a generous life-changing experience, and the emotions that can surprise and overwhelm you in passion-based work.

Shay offers student tips in her workshops before practice-time, getting positive responses and requests for more. At HMI you are learning the art of hypnotherapy, self-help care, starting a business, and so much more. No wonder you may feel a little pressure, and in need of good tips for learning as you continue to move forward. Now you can ease some of that pressure with ways Shay has figured out… often the hard, humorous, or goofy ways from her own experience. These tips can help bring more success, confidence and ease to your everyday practice and education. They can help you save time, and to know it is all doable.
