Attending the second level of training in Clinical Hypnosis is an important step towards proficiency and confidence in offering hypnotic interventions to diverse populations and symptom presentations.

Whether your Fundamental – Level I (Basic) training in Clinical Hypnosis was 6 months or 6 years ago, this training will meet you where you are and help you build on to your “how to” techniques from the Fundamental course, and refresh, solidify, broaden, and refine your hypnotic skills and strategies.

Similar to the Fundamental training, the Level II course will offer you learning through didactic presentations, demonstrations and small-group practices, so that new information can be integrated and become available to you in your clinical practice. Our learning community will be capped at 21 participants and 3 instructors to facilitate an optimal learning environment. Your instructors will be ASCH approved consultants with decades of clinical experience offering hypnosis.

We will address the following topics on the utilization of clinical hypnosis:

  • Creative use of language for hypnotic interventions
  • Working with Children
  • Trauma based disorders
  • Habit Disorders
  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Sleep Disorders
  • Medical procedures, pain management, acute/chronic illness (Headaches/IBS)
  • Treatment Planning

If you are pursuing the increasingly more sought-after certification by ASCH, the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis, the Level II training will offer 20 hours towards the 60-hour ASCH certification. In addition, 20 CEs towards your professional licensure requirements will be made available.
