The Academy for Guided Imagery and Integrative Practitioner in co-operation with 24 other co-sponsoring organizations present “IMAGERY, SUGGESTION, AND MIND/BODY MEDICINE: 2008.”  This historic conference will be held as an online webcast that will first reach an international audience on May 15-18, 2008. Participants will not have to travel, pay for hotel or transportation expenses, or take extended time away from work, study or home activities. Even better, any missed presentations will be available online anytime until July 19, 2008.

Imagery and suggestion are critically important unconscious elements in most health care communications, for they can significantly affect the outcome of many medical interventions and therapies.  During this groundbreaking webcast, the originators and long-time developers, researchers, teachers, and practitioners of ancient and modern imagery-related techniques will share their unique and extensive expertise, wisdom, and experience through formal presentations and interactive interviews.

This distinguished faculty includes 30 of the leading international researchers, clinicians, and authorities in this field. These experts will share their most recent theories, thoughts, research, techniques, strategies, and clinical findings concerning imagery, visualization, suggestion, mind/body medicine, and related topics. 

Presenters include Jeanne Achterberg, PhD; Daniel J. Benor, MD, ABHM; David E. Bresler, PhD, LAc; Hyla Cass, MD; Effie Poy Yew Chow, PhD, RN, LAc; James S. Gordon, MD; Dennis Jaffe, PhD; Stanley Krippner, PhD; Lewis Mehl-Madrona, MD, PhD; Emmett Miller, MD; Dean Ornish, MD; Kenneth R. Pelletier, PhD, MD(hc); Martin Rossman, MD; Francine Shapiro, PhD; C. Norman Shealy, MD, PhD; David S. Sobel, MD, MPH; and (hopefully) Andrew Weil, among others. 

Guest faculty include best-selling crime novelist James Ellroy, on envisioning addiction and sobriety; legendary Hollywood film producer Peter Guber, on the power of the narrative; and preeminent security expert and best-selling author Gavin de Becker, on “The Gift of Fear.”

Co-sponsoring organizations include Integrative Practitioner, American Health Association, American Holistic Medical Association, Association for Humanistic Psychology, California School of Professional Psychology/Alliant International University, Center for Mind-Body Medicine, Institute of Noetic Sciences, ISSSEEM, Pacific Graduate School of Psychology, Saybrook Graduate School & Research Center, and Walden University, among others, and CE credits are offered for most health care professions.
