Roger Moore’s Institute of Hypnotherapy is excited to announce that Hypnotherapy for Alzheimer’s and other Dementias will be held here in Seattle, September 14 and 15, 2013. Studies show that hypnotherapy for some people living with dementia may be a valuable form of therapy in enhancing their quality of life. This course is facilitated over two full days and is aimed at existing clinicians wishing to further develop their existing clinical skills, knowledge and competence in older care or those wishing to develop a new clinical interest.

Hypnotherapy for Alzheimer’s
and other Dementias
The course has been designed, and is taught by, Dr Daniel Nightingale, a UK based Senior Dementia Consultant and Consultant Hypno-Psychotherapist in Dementia, and Kathy Balland, an Arizona based Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist and award winning wellness author.
Dr Daniel Nightingale and Dr Simon Duff collaborated on researching the use of hypnotherapy for people living with dementia. This research led to 3 major publications, worldwide interest and the development of this course.
The first day focus solely on dementia and present person centered care approaches within the UK and USA . This will be an interactive workshop with group activities and feedback sessions taking place. Areas covered will include types of dementia, brain pathology and risk factors, empathy, environmental factors, appropriate memory aid strategies and activities.
Day two will focus on evidence from the published work in this field by Duff and Nightingale; the assessment process; ethical issues and use of hypnotherapy and psychotherapy in clinical practice.
There are 3 main outcomes for this course:
- To equip qualified therapists with the most up-to-date knowledge of present day philosophies of care for people living with dementia and their loved ones.
- To equip qualified therapists with the skills, knowledge and clinical competence that will ensure the most up to date and best practice in this area is offered to people with dementia.
- To provide qualified therapists with appropriate and relevant support and guidance in the provision of hypnotherapy to this client group.

“Living with dementia is often a life that is uncertain from day to day. As such, fear and anxiety are at the very core of daily living. We aim to change that through a true person centered care approach that not only involves therapy, but also an awareness of the impact one’s environment has on the behavior, character and personality of someone living with dementia. We do not have a concept of suffering from dementia. Our concept is that individuals can live well with dementia.” ~Dr Daniel Nightingale
An estimated 5.4 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease alone (2012 Alzheimer’s disease Facts and Figures). This does not take in to account those living with other types of dementia (there are over 100 types of dementia), nor those who do not have a formal diagnosis, in which case the numbers could be doubled. With the aging population and one in eight people age 65 and over having Alzheimer’s disease, it won’t be too long now before someone comes to see you for help – help with the challenges brought by dementia.
