In this lecture you can expect an appealing mixture of scientific lecture, exciting stories from practice and a live demonstration. You will get a clear idea of what hypnosis is, how to study its effects and what it looks like in real life.

Dr. Barbara Schmidt represents the subject of hypnosis with an infectious enthusiasm that will get you excited about a therapeutic method that has been around for a long time and deserves more attention. In her studies, the scientist at the University Hospital of Jena shows that accompanying ventilated persons in the intensive care unit with hypnosis can significantly improve the fear of the breathing mask and the feelings of suffocation when breathing against the machine.

Hypnosis has also been shown to help with stress such as that experienced in job interviews and exam situations, reducing both psychological and physical indicators of stress. Even subjectively perceived confidence in remembering learned content can be increased by hypnotic suggestions. These are convincing arguments for using hypnosis more intensively in therapy.
