NPHTI Listserve Goal
Our Listserve is a safe, supportive forum in which all of the NPHTI teaching faculty, and almost all of our past workshop attendees, are able to refine, define, and shine a light on the practice of pediatric clinical hypnosis for one another. It’s the “workshop” of our everyday experiences and a place to bring quandaries, successes, and pearls of wisdom. We have found that sharing these with each other expands our mutual knowledge and experience; promotes reflection, continued education, and growth; and ultimately maximizes the service that we provide to our patients, clients, and their families.
NPHTI Listserve Membership
Membership and posting is by invitation only — these invitations are sent out to our workshop attendees immediately upon their completion of their first workshop with us. The membership of this Listserve is limited to NPHTI graduates and faculty, all SDBP Pediatric Hypnosis Workshop alumni, and selected other workshops with comparable pediatric hypnosis training approved by NPHTI.
If you attended any of these workshops and are not yet a member of the NPHTI Listserve, please contact our NPHTI Listserve Manager, Andy Barnes. He can be contacted by submitting your request after clicking on the following link: Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
After you have become a member of the NPHTI Listserve, please be sure to read the GUIDELINES FOR POSTING MESSAGES on the NPHTI Google site.
Coinciding with our inaugural NPHTI Workshops (September 30-October 2, 2010, Minneapolis) our NPHTI Listserve was launched. During the 2002 Advanced Pediatric Hypnosis Workshop (at that time, sponsored by the Society for Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics-SDBP, Seattle), the students created the first pediatric hypnosis listserve, called the Pediatric Guerilla Hypnosis listserve, which was initially managed by Bob Deutsch, PhD who then continued to do so as the workshops transitioned from SDBP to NPHTI. It was designed for clinicians around the world with advanced pediatric hypnosis training with our Faculty. The intention was to provide a forum for dialogue amongst clinicians committed to excellence in the utilization of pediatric hypnosis and hypnotherapy with children, youth, and families.
Google Group Membership
We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the variety of Google group functions. When you go to the NPHTI Listserve site, please explore the many options available for directing the listserve postings to you. You may also benefit from “Googling” Google Groups for excellent explanations and directions for the use of Google Groups. YouTube also offers some excellent tutorials for the use of Google Groups.
