Dr Michael Goldblatt works half time as a staff specialist at Flinders Medical Centre and half time in private practice with Stace Anaesthetic Services. He was awarded a Diploma of Clinical Hypnosis in 2012 after training with some of the world’s leading hypnotherapists.

Presentation summary:
As anaesthetists we meet people all the time who behave in ways that defy logic. Why would any rational adult continue to smoke? Why are some patients, who are covered in tattoos and piercings, absolutely terrified of the smallest of cannulas? And the list goes on of behaviours that defy rational thinking… and not just in our patients.

The way we think, act and feel results from very complex interactions but new research in the fields of cognitive and social psychology combined with advances in neuroimaging shows us that the influence of unconscious processing is more important than we had previously realised. This knowledge provides us with meaningful explanations for the origins of our thinking, as well as how hypnosis can be used to change people’s perceptions and thereby allowing changes to occur in the way we think, feel and behave.
