Virginia Beach, VA – November 13-14, 2010.  Hypnotists of the Virginia Veterans Hypnosis Project gathered at the Oceanfront to discuss hypnosis methods and techniques that would benefit Veterans who are struggling with combat operational stress.  

Andrew Leon, chairman of the Virginia Veterans Hypnosis Project stated, “The goal is to reach out to the veterans who cannot talk about their symptoms.” 

One of several local speakers at the meeting was Mary von Posch, owner of Hypnosis Center of Virginia, who spoke on the topic of Mindfulness and how these techniques can be incorporated into hypnosis sessions for returning combat veterans to help them live more fully in the present rather than focusing on the past.  This process helps them take back control of their thoughts.  Additional hypnosis techniques may also help Veterans reduce overall negative feelings related to their experiences in combat.  

The members of the Virginia Hypnosis Veterans Project continue to meet periodically to formulate their standards of practice guidelines for working with veterans who are experiencing combat operational stress.
