Hypnosis for GI Issues: An Integrative Approach

Mark Weisberg, PhD, ABPP


In this 3 hour presentation, Dr Weisberg will discuss essentials of applying clinical hypnosis in the treatment of GI issues, including Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), GERD/Reflux, and Inflammatory Bowel conditions such as Crohns and Ulcerative Colitis. Participants will learn how concepts of Autonomic Dysregulation and Central Sensitization are vital to the understanding and treatment of these conditions. We will also discuss the category of Disorders of Gut-Brain Interaction (DGBI). Specific hypnotic techniques for treating GI conditions will be discussed.

In the second part of the workshop, Dr Weisberg will discuss applications of these concepts to case material provided by workshop participants.


  1. Participants will describe disorders of gut-brain interaction (DGBI) and how nervous system dysregulation affects this.
  2. Participants will describe why patients with IBS often have co-morbid symptoms of headache, insomnia, or widespread pain.
  3. Participants will learn at least 2 hypnotic techniques applied to the treatment of GI issues.
