  Working With Children
Presented by Siobhan Hill Elam
Many hypnotherapists shy away from treating children because they don’t feel comfortable or do not know what approach to take, partly as children do not readily respond to the standard adult inductions and strategies.

The James Braid Society's July meeting on Thursday 24 July 2008 focused exclusively on the specialised techniques required for this work.

The talk delivered by Siobhan Hill Elam, examined the difficulties involved in working with children and the general adaptations needed to do successful therapy. These included:

  • Child logic and psychology;
  • Communicaions;
  • Hypnotic responsiveness;
  • Special factors in treating the under-sixes;

  • Parental issues.

Siobhan's talk also covered a numer of specific child probems including issues such thumb-sucking; bed-wetting; insomnia; school phobia; bullying; dental phobia; eating disorders; learning disorders and child sexual abuse.

Working with children she explained can be very rewarding for the therapist as well as enhancing the therapeutic portfolio offered.
