Sylvain Neron

Sylvain Néron obtained a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from University of Montreal in 1986. From 1980 to 1995, he worked in two psychiatric services. In the early eighties, his clinical focus shifted to psycho-oncology. In addition to his initial training in psychodynamic psychotherapy, he became a specialist of adapting stress management strategies and cognitive-behavioral therapy techniques to the several contexts of the cancer treatment continuum for persons dealing with cancer and their caregivers, and offered existential psychotherapy in palliative care settings. From 1990 to 1995, he authored and co-authored several publications : « Vivre avec le cancer », « Vivre avec un malade... sans le devenir ! », « Des outils pour maîtriser l'anxiété et la panique » (éditions du Méridien) and « L'art et les voix de l'accompagnement: À l'écoute de la souffrance et de la maladie », (éditions MédiasPaul). Dr. Néron is a Faculty Lecturer in the Department of Psychiatry at McGill University and Associate professor in the Department of Social Work of Laval University. He consults for inpatient and outpatient services of the oncology department at the Sir Mortimer B. Davis - Jewish General Hospital. He uses clinical hypnosis to help patients prepare for various diagnostic and surgical procedures, palliation of symptoms and alleviation of suffering, and existential psychotherapy for patients with cancer. He is certified in clinical hypnosis and is an approved consultant of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis. He teaches clinical hypnosis for health care professionals in national and international organizations and scientific meetings. With a few dedicated colleagues, in 2004 he founded and became the first president of the Federation canadienne d’hypnose clinique / Canadian Federation of Clinical Hypnosis: Section – Québec - Division.
