Introduction

SCEH is very excited to be celebrating its 72nd anniversary at our 2021 conference, which will be held online.  The Annual Conference continues the proud tradition of SCEH meetings that focus  and expand upon the evidence base of clinical hypnosis.

Conference Theme

Our 2021 conference theme, Protests, a Pandemic, and Political Unrest: Hypnosis to Weather the Storm, puts a focus on moving through the seismic events of the past year. Last year revealed waves of shocks to many of our systems, including clients/patients, communities, families, countries -- and the list continues. As we continue to navigate through challenging times marked with widespread hardships, our conference will focus on supporting one another in order to take care of our clients/patients, as well as ourselves. Prominent experts in the field will join us to offer fresh creative interventions and applications of clinical hypnosis. Workshops across three levels (Introductory, Intermediate/Skills and Advanced) will review the utilization of hypnosis as an adaptable adjunct to other therapeutic interventions for enhancing treatment outcomes. The Scientific Program will include Keynotes, Symposia and Research Presentations with speakers from across the world, addressing the scope of hypnosis in both psychological and medical settings.  Consistent with prior SCEH conferences, there will be numerous opportunities for interaction with colleagues, both at our networking sessions and throughout the event.
