ASCH Level I (Fundamentals) Training in Clinical Hypnosis 2022
ISSTD is pleased to offer an ASCH Level I (Fundamental) training in clinical hypnosis! Join us prior to the ISSTD Annual Conference to gain a solid theoretical, practical, and experiential understanding of clinical hypnosis. This training is trauma and dissociation focused, appreciating the autohypnotic capacities of traumatized and dissociated people, and the unique abilities of clinically sound hypnotic interventions to further the healing process.
The training incorporates lots of opportunities to experience hypnosis for yourself, as well as 1:1 and small group practices to become comfortable with offering individualized formal and informal trance experiences from start to finish. This training will address how to integrate hypnosis into your practice, and how to offer hypnosis as part of the treatment you are already providing. At the end of the training, you can feel confident and ready to share your beginning hypnosis skills with some of your patients, tailored to their individual needs.
