Clinical Case History Package 2 - Case 1

HMI Instructor: Michele Guzy
Recording Date: 2006-04-10
Media Length: 71 Minutes

Client
Cindy is a 59-year-old female, emotional sexual and suggestible.
Presenting Issue
Cindy is interested in hypnosis for weight loss.
Case Highlights
Ms. Guzy gets the class started on a group discussion of the client's handwriting sample. She reminds the class why the traits from the handwriting are not a permanent identity of the client and how to utilize the information obtained from a sample.
Ms. Guzy commences the process of the interview by asking Cindy, the client, some basic questions about her concerns and her idea of hypnosis, while weaving in parts of the pre-induction speech. Ms. Guzy's questions are very precise and relevant to the presenting issue. Cindy discusses her childhood and her relationship with food when she was growing up. She also reveals her eating habits and the unsuccessful diet programs she has tried in the past.
As the session progresses, Ms. Guzy counsels the client on weight management and offers suggestion on replacing the word' weight loss' with 'weight management' as she explains why it should be avoided.

Must Watch: This case is basic example of the first session with a weight management client as Ms. Guzy's interview process is marvelous and very effective in getting the therapy started.


Clinical Case History Package 2 - Case 2

HMI Instructor: Lisa Machenberg
Recording Date: 2006-05-02
Media Length: 88 Minutes

Client
Maryann is a 60-year-old female with emotional sexuality and emotional suggestibility.
Presenting Issue
Maryann complains of sleeping disorder and an itching problem that have not been explained by medical examinations over the past 14 years.
Case Highlights
Ms. Machenberg begins the interview process by directly asking the client, which of the two main issues she would like to work with first. As Maryann expresses her concern over her sleeplessness, Ms. Machenberg asks her questions relating to medicines, sleeping patterns and educates Maryann on the four stages of sleep. A possible case of anticipatory anxiety could be causing Maryann to lose sleep. Ms. Machenberg’s treatment plan for the client is using dream therapy to vent out the anxiety and worry through early morning dreams.

Clinical Case History Package 2 - Case 3

HMI Instructor: Michele Guzy
Recording Date: 2006-05-10
Media Length: 98 Minutes

Client
Asaf is a 30-year-old male actor with emotional suggestibility and sexuality.
Presenting Issue
Asaf expresses uneasiness with the condition of his sweaty palms when going in for auditions, a case of performance anxiety.
Case Highlights
Ms. Guzy commences the case history session by analyzing the client’s handwriting. The class contributes by expressing their intuition on the sample. She then to strategizes the session by discussing a plan of action with hypnotic modalities that could help him handle his issue. Physical anchors, imagery and desensitization might help this client.
As Asaf comes in, he gives the audience a background of his professional gigs, having played some famous roles on television, while disclosing the anxiety about his sweaty palms. Ms. Guzy continues to interview Asaf and gathers some important information regarding his reaction to auditions and anticipatory anxiety. The case takes a slight turn to a possible low-blood sugar condition, as during the interview Asaf reveals some very pivotal information on his diet, especially his caffeine intake. Find out, how big a large cup of coffee is, 3 times a day, for the actor

Clinical Case History Package 2 - Case 4

HMI Instructor: Michele Guzy
Recording Date: 2008-05-16
Media Length: 109 Minutes

Client
Michael is a 57-year-old physical sexual and physical suggestible male.
Presenting Issue
Michael wants to use hypnosis to get over the need of being "on guard" all times. He has a hard time forgiving family for the misdeeds that have been done to him in the past.
Case Highlights
Ms. Guzy explains how to find the ‘hook’ for the client and what to look for in a handwriting sample to reveal the suggestibility and sexuality of a person. She encourages the class to get a ‘feel’ of the handwriting sample and discusses what part of the handwriting gives a clue into the subconscious process of the client.
Michael, the client, describes his issue about his father and grandmother, and how in the present times he constantly feels the need to be on guard due to their behavior towards him and a physically abusive childhood. As Michael explains his past to the audience, Ms. Guzy helps organize the information and asks Michael how it has affected him in the three areas of physical, emotional and mental health.
Ms. Guzy continues to interview Michael, repeating back his answers, building rapport with her client, while maintaining control of the session. The discussion now moves to revealing clues about Michael’s sexuality and suggestibility as Ms. Guzy encourages the class to ask specific questions to confirm the information.
Before taking the client into hypnosis, Ms. Guzy reviews the session, and confirms the consistency with the handwriting, sexuality, and suggestibility.

Must Watch: This case is a great example of dynamic between a therapist and client with similar sexuality. Ms. Guzy gives some tips to therapists on this example.


Clinical Case History Package 2 - Case 5

HMI Instructor: Lisa Machenberg
Recording Date: 2006-05-30
Media Length: 95 Minutes

Client
Daniel is a 35-year-old physical sexual male with somnambulist suggestibility.
Presenting Issue
Daniel is looking towards hypnosis to integrate the past to have a superior, better life.
Case Highlights
Lisa Machenberg recaps the session by discussing with the class to look for metaphors in the client's speech and decide the hypnosis session based on the type of language they use. The client introduces himself to the class, describing his life, as an abused child and why he now calls himself as a 'road scholar'. Daniel's history is quite intense as he shares with the class, how he was constantly abandoned by his parents, the foster parents and his own grandparents from a very young age.
Lisa Machenberg breaks down the session for Daniel and explains his subconscious programming being the basis of his behavior throughout his life. Her treatment plan for Daniel includes regulating his diet to include fair amounts of protein while Ms. Machenberg reasons how this will aid the therapy. The power of the subconscious mind is explained to Daniel and Ms. Machenberg lists out the positives she will be lodging into his subconscious script.
Ms. Machenberg's treatment plan for Daniels includes re-parenting in self-hypnosis, regulating blood sugar and cognitive behavioral therapy for the following weeks.

Must Watch: Post hypnosis, the class discusses a very interesting analysis of Daniel, as Ms. Machenberg encourages the class to share their clinical notes on the case and treatment plan for the consecutive session.


Clinical Case History Package 2 - Case 6

HMI Instructor: Marc Gravelle
Recording Date: 2006-06-05
Media Length: 80 Minutes

Client
Angela is a Registered Nurse, emotional sexual and suggestible.
Presenting Issue
Weight management is a concern for Angela. She is feeling less motivated for school and career.
Case Highlights
Marc Gravelle interviews Angela on her feelings of depression and anxiety as she describes her symptoms to the class. Mr. Gravelle continues to ask her questions on what the major stressors are in her life that contributes to the anxiety. Mr. Gravelle reveals his approach to weight management, and how he relates it to math.
He further on explores the possibility of low blood sugar that might be contributing to the anxiety. Mr. Gravelle's synopsis of the client's issue is inclusive of a possible case of hyper suggestibility, low blood sugar and subconscious programming of utilizing food for emotional comfort.

Must Watch: Mr. Gravelle's pre-induction speech and the explanation of the Theory of Mind woven around the client's presenting issue of weight management is brilliant and serves as a guide for the first session.

2018-09-03 at 14:14 Pacific Time

This was a lesson packed with great material - such as how to use the client responses in his treatment, how to recognize and eventually break the cycle of behavior, and even how to use past experiences for rapport-building rather than psycho-analysis. I intend to watch this several times to absorb this wealth of information.
