March 9, 2020 -- Hypnosis for Chronic Pain: Maximizing Comfort

Mark P. Jensen, PhD, University of Washington, Seattle, WA

Overview:  This 1.5-hour webinar will provide an overview of hypnotic strategies and suggestions for helping individuals better self-manage chronic pain
conditions. It will begin with a discussion of the neurophysiology of nociception and pain, focusing on nine specific processes and physiological
structures involved in pain perception, that can be influenced by hypnotic suggestions. Evidence regarding pain’s impact on other functioning
domains (e.g., activity level, sleep, mood) will be discussed, and ideas for hypnotic suggestions and approaches for addressing all of these
domains and processes will be generated.

Next, the facilitator will describe what is currently known about the etiology and factors that contribute to pain associated with a number of common
chronic pain conditions (specifically, headache, chronic widespread pain, low back pain, neuropathic pain, and complex regional pain syndrome),
and how hypnosis can be tailored to treat each one. The webinar will end with a demonstration showing how clinicians can target hypnotic
suggestions tailored to the needs of a specific patient.

About the Presenter:  Mark P. Jensen, PhD, is a Professor and Vice Chair for Research in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine who has been studying chronic pain and helping individuals better manage chronic pain for 40 years. He has been funded by the National Institutes of Health and other funding agencies to study the efficacy and mechanisms of various treatments for chronic pain, including hypnotic analgesia. He has published extensively (over 500 articles and book chapters) on the topics of pain assessment and treatment. His guidebook on the use of hypnosis for chronic pain management and an accompanying patient manual in the Oxford University Press “Treatments that Work” series (Hypnosis for Chronic Pain Management: Therapist Guide) co-won (along with David Patterson’s book, Clinical Hypnosis for Pain Control) the 2011 Society of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis Arthur Shapiro Award for Best Book on Hypnosis.
