Hypnosis and CBT, two therapeutic tools serving the patient / practitioner relationship

The immense progress made since 1853, the date of the invention of the syringe by the good Dr. Pravaz, might have led to the belief that dental care is henceforth perceived as innocuous and harmless. But this is not the case: not only does the prevalence of “dental phobia” not decrease in the general population, but the demands of patients are increasing, which is increasingly burdening the healthcare team. Clinicians should be prepared to receive these patients and be trained in communication and behavior management techniques. To avoid seeing his patient get carried away by an emotional whirlwind that can lead to panic disorder, the professional must know how to take his time, to welcome without judging, to collect grievances, to explain without frightening … It ‘s a good paternalism but to gain confidence by showing empathy. This benevolence is necessary but not always sufficient: it nevertheless finds considerable leverage when the right word is given at the right time.
There is no care without trust, and no confidence without communication … But the relation of care is not an ordinary conversation: to know how to communicate, means for the practitioner, to adapt his discourse, his strategy, his objectives to each patient. Do not always yield to the temptation of the more “urgent” technically, but let the patient prepare for more intrusive acts by gradual exposure. harmonizing the verbal with the non-verbal, with the layout of the premises or the ergonomics of the work area. We will discuss the basic principles of conversational hypnosis, which today is of particular interest to the medical community, as well as those of cognitive and behavioral therapies (CBT) that are capable of dealing with anxiety disorders and specific phobias.
