College of Mind-Body Medicine Students Complete Practicum at the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute

03/22/2012

 

  As PhD candidates in Mind-Body Medicine, LaVera Forbes and Beth Haggett keenly listened to Dr. Michael Roizen at the American Society for Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH) conference in Las Vegas, they both had the same thought “…we should do our practicum with him.”  After the presentation they approached Dr. Roizen.  They introduced themselves as Ph.D. students in the College of Mind-Body Medicine at Saybrook University, and presented their idea to do a practicum with him.  Within minutes their idea turned into a reality, as Dr. Roizen gracefully agreed.  Actualizing this practicum required some coordination work on Beth and LaVera’s part, as well as some trust as for months they communicated only through Dr. Roizen’s assistant. One year later they were shadowing Dr. Roizen around the internationally respected Cleveland Clinic.
 
            Dr. Roizen, who continues to practice anesthesiology and internal medicine, wears many hats.  He is the Chief Wellness Officer at the Cleveland Clinic and leads the Wellness Institute. He has appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show 13 times, the Today 17 times, 20/20 (3 times), Good Morning America (24 times), CBN (15 times), CNN, CBS, and that is just a sample. The following statement from Dr. Roizen sums up his passion for preventive medicine, “I have the honor and pleasure of working each day from 6:30 am to 11:00 pm, but I love it and it is an honor.”

The Vitality of Fragmentation: Desublimation and the Symbolic Order
By Geoffrey Thompson

This chapter will focus on theoretical, clinical and personal challenges surrounding my work as an art therapist in an adult outpatient service of a psychiatric hospital. The evolution of my thinking pervades my clinical work with the client discussed in the vignette, as I sought to integrate desublimation from art theory and philosophy with psychoanalytic theory. (Thompson, 2007).

Newsflash from the Meeting of the American Society for Clinical Hypnosis in Charlotte, North Carolina

03/20/2012

It's been a blast here at the ASCH meeting in a sort of sleep-deprived way.  Yesterday after Pierre Rainville's keynote, I spent 2 hours with him (and David Spiegel of Stanford) in my room doing Dr. Rainville’s video interview and talking about his perspective that hypnosis is the humanistic connection between neuroscience and the study of subjective experience, something that the Cognitive Behavioral perspective misses.  Dr. Rainville (University of Montreal) filmed a short "hello" to the Saybrook Hypnosis, Biofeedback, and Cognitive Neuroscience students, responding to the question, “Why should a student in Mind-Body Medicine study __________?”   Dr. Rainville is a great guy, who researches everything from brain mechanisms in hypnosis to pain perception in Zen meditators.
