Introduction

This year’s Annual Conference continues SCEH’s proud tradition of evidence-based professional development and educational sessions on clinical hypnosis.  The Annual Conference provides attendees the opportunity to explore new topics, learn best practices and tools, gain continuing education credits and engage in vibrant debate with instructors and colleagues.
Agenda is subject to change.  SCEH reserves the right to cancel any workshop due to insufficient registration. Bookmark this page for the latest information.
All Presenters and Attendees are asked to familiarize themselves with SCEH Confidentiality Statement for Attendees and Presenters.
 

Conference Theme

Our 2022 conference theme, Next Steps and Future Directions for Hypnosis Research and Practice, reflects the Society’s commitment to research and practice, and how each informs the other. The theme reflects the diverse clinical settings in which our clinical members practice, and the wide range of research questions that arise from those interactions. Important work on elements fundamental to understanding hypnosis, such as the nature of consciousness, beliefs, and suggestion, point to next steps and future directions for advancing our understanding of practical applications of hypnosis. We invite workshop proposals supported by research findings, and scientific program submissions ranging from basic research findings to outcome data broadly relevant to hypnosis.

Workshops

SCEH workshops teach participants hypnotic theory and practical techniques for immediate use in professional practice. Workshops are scientifically based and of the highest teaching quality. Most workshops include demonstrations and/or practica or other experiential components. Workshops meet accepted Standards of Training in Clinical Hypnosis and count toward SCEH Hypnosis Certification Programs.
The Annual Conference includes Introductory, Intermediate and Advanced Workshops.  
  • Introductory (Basic) Workshop in Clinical Hypnosis (Taken as a cohort)
    The Introductory Workshop follows established Standards of Training to provide attendees with a basic background and understanding to begin using hypnosis within the context of their scope of practice.
  • Intermediate/Skills Workshops (Taken as a cohort, or Advanced Workshop registrants can select some sessions from this category also.)
    The Intermediate Workshop can be used toward SCEH intermediate certification or simply to refresh and expand hypnotic skills.
  • Advanced Workshops (Choose from a selection of full or half day concurrent sessions)
    Advanced Workshops are designed for those who have completed Introductory and Intermediate level clinical hypnosis training.
Please refer to the conference brochure for complete information on all conference workshops.
 

Scientific Program

The Scientific Program includes Keynotes, Symposia, Research Presentations and a Poster Session.  Sessions 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 systemati 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. 

Please refer to the conference brochure for details on the Scientific Program, including an agenda and session descriptions.
