The Clinical Conversations are free to members of ASCH, its component sections, and SCEH.  There is a $15 fee for nonmembers.  All proceeds go to fund the Stephen R. Lankton Scholarship Award.

Description:  There is increasing evidence that properly facilitated “imagined” experience can play a central role in supporting the recalibration of the brain’s response to pain perception. Join us as we explore recent findings in pain science which can be utilized in combination with hypnotic techniques to support chronic pain recovery. Information on pain neuroscience education for patients, opportunities to integrate hypnotic techniques for pain recovery in clinical practice, as well as an experiential exercise will be offered.
