Hypnosis is an effective tool, applicable beyond borders, and is recognized for the management of stress and post achievement stress and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Association Hypnose Humanitaire (AHH) will introduce you to the world of hypnosis in the humanitarian sector through a combination of theoretical and practical knowledge.

You will get a short theoretical overview of how hypnosis works, how practitioners apply hypnosis as a tool in the medical sector, in therapy, and on stage. Additionally, AHH will show the benefits of hypnosis in the humanitarian sector and how they use hypnosis to support humanitarian workers before, during, and after a mission.

Finally, in the practical part, AHH will teach you a self-hypnosis tool to enable you to live your life even better and more stress-free. The workshop is going to be concluded with group hypnosis.

Through this first webinar in English, the following points will be discussed:

1. What is hypnosis? How does it work?

2. The differences between stage, medical and therapeutic hypnosis

3. The possibilities of hypnosis in the humanitarian context

a. before a field mission
