SCEH Scientific Program

 

The Scientific Program features presentations or symposia that address empirical issues in hypnosis research and practice and related areas. Research presentations shine the light on novel empirically-based findings, including experimental studies, case reports, clinical trials, meta-analyses, and systematic reviews. Symposia bring together top notch researchers as they critically discuss empirical findings pertaining to a specific theme of relevance to the hypnosis community. Many symposia integrate research and practice or draw upon research in psychology, psychiatry, or neuroscience to highlight issues that improve our understanding of hypnosis. Our poster session provides another glimpse into the latest research in the field.
