Promoting excellence and progress in hypnosis research, education and clinical practice.

The Society for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis (SCEH) is an international association whose mission is to promote excellence and progress in hypnosis research, education, and clinical practice.  A distinguishing feature of the Society is our emphasis on empirical inquiry and the evidence-base of hypnosis. 

SCEH hypnosis training programs are scientifically based and recognized by professional schools (medical, dental, psychology, social work).  We also offer hypnosis certification programs for both clinicians and researchers.  Among SCEH member benefits are the International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis (the Society's quarterly scholarly journal), a quarterly newsletter, networking, hypnosis resources, a mentorship program and book discounts.
