72nd Annual Workshops and Scientific Program

Protests, a Pandemic and Political Unrest:
Hypnosis to Weather the Storm

October 13-17, 2021        #SCEH2021

Online *

Submission Deadline: March 12, 2021

 

* Conference Format: Online

Out of an abundance of caution, SCEH has voted to move our 2021 Annual Conference online. We plan to reschedule our face-to-face meeting in Anaheim to 2022.

Conference Theme

The 2021 conference theme is Protests, a Pandemic, and Political Unrest: Hypnosis to Weather the Storm. Proposals that further this theme will be prioritized, as well as those that extend the scope of hypnosis in both medical and psychological practice.

Our conference theme for 2021 puts a focus on moving through the seismic events of the past year. 2020 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 2021 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 of hypnosis 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. Our workshops are not only a great way to generate creative renewal which can be readily applied across a variety of clinical settings, they are also a great way to interact with instructors and establish connections within the SCEH community. Consistent with prior SCEH conferences, participants can also attend the Scientific Program, a Poster Session, and will have opportunities for interactions at SCEH networking events. The Scientific Program will offer keynotes, symposia and research presentations with speakers from across the world, addressing the scope of hypnosis in both psychological and medical settings.

Providing a Welcoming Environment

All Presenters are asked to familiarize themselves with the following SCEH Policies.

Creating Your Submission

We suggest using Firefox, Chrome or Safari browsers for completing forms on our website.  Other browsers are not supported by our system.

Please create and save the content of your proposal in a simple text format, then cut and paste it into the form. This will save you time should you lose your Internet connection while working on your submission, or should your form submission fail for some reason.  Please note that most submission problems can be addressed by clearing your browser's cache.

Due to formatting limitations, SCEH forms are restricted to plain text, and therefore will not accept bold, italics, or other special formatting. Please create your proposal with this in mind.

To submit a proposal, click on the buttons below to access the appropriate online form.

Delivering Your Presentation: What You Will Need

Presenters should be aware that as a small organization, SCEH is not able to provide full A/V support. As a Presenter, we ask that you 1) become familiar with Zoom; 2) practice your presentation in advance to ensure it keeps within your scheduled time, and 3) if using video, arrange to play it directly from your computer, not try to stream it from the Internet (which can significantly reduce audio and visual quality). If using video, you must also stipulate you have secured all the necessary rights to use the content. Thank you.

Call for Advanced Workshops

The Advanced Workshops take place Wednesday through Friday, and are offered in one, two, three and four-hour formats.

We invite workshops that address our conference theme and/or cover major themes in hypnosis. SCEH workshops are scientifically-based and of the highest teaching quality. Please be sure to include demonstrations and practice sessions in your proposal wherever possible. Our attendees frequently ask for more hands practice opportunities and we consider experiential components an important part of our workshops.

Pre-submission Inquiries

Pre-submission inquiries can be sent to the Advanced Workshop Chairs or you may email us at [email protected]

Note on Introductory and Intermediate/Skills Workshops

The curriculum for these workshops is established by the Conference Committee and Workshop Co-chairs, governed by the Standards of Training and SCEH Certification requirements. Both include 20 hours of training and CE, and are conducted over three days (Wednesday - Friday).  If you are interested in volunteering to teach a topic or serve as a group practice supervisor for either, please contact us.  Note that all conference attendees and presenters are required to register for the conference.

 

Call for Scientific Presentations and Posters

The Scientific Program will run throughout the conference with keynotes on Wednesday through Friday, and symposia, panels and presentations from Friday through Sunday.  A poster session is scheduled for Saturday evening in advance of our Annual Awards Banquet.

We invite researchers and clinicians to submit proposals addressing empirical issues in the science of hypnosis and related topics which address our conference theme and/or cover major themes in hypnosis and related areas, and which broaden our understanding of hypnosis. Aside from empirical work, we also invite the submission of abstracts of rigorously conducted case studies, case series and critical reviews.

Presentation Formats

The Scientific Program features Research Presentations, Symposia and Posters focused on empirical issues in hypnosis research and practice and related areas. The SCEH Scientific Program provides a unique venue for presenting and integrating rigorous data-based findings in an atmosphere conducive to constructive criticism and debate.

  • 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 today's leading researchers as they critically discuss empirical findings pertaining to a specific topic relevant to the hypnosis community. Many of these sessions integrate research and practice or draw upon research in psychology, psychiatry or neuroscience.
  • Posters provide another glimpse into the latest research in the field. Posters can include either fully completed research studies, clinical case studies and pilot studies as well as preliminary research. See more information on posters below.

Poster Submissions

We invite researchers and clinicians to submit posters addressing our conference theme and/or exploring empirical issues in the science of hypnosis and related topics. Presenting a poster at the SCEH Scientific Program is an excellent opportunity to present either fully completed research studies, clinical case studies and pilot studies as well as preliminary research. The submission should clearly specify that the submission is a Poster.

The SCEH Annual Conference provides a unique venue for presenting and integrating rigorous data-based findings in an atmosphere conducive to constructive criticism and debate. Poster presentations allow authors to concisely present a case report or data that can be easily grasped in this format. Poster presentations often permit more discussion between presenters and attendees and may be especially advantageous for students, clinicians, and new investigators. At the Poster Session, poster presenters gain valuable feedback from leading clinicians and researchers in the hypnosis field, both in group and one on one discussions.  Poster presenters gain experience in the poster format and have an opportunity to expand professional relationships.

Accepted poster presenters will be also invited to give a mini oral presentation (2-5 minute) about their work during a "Poster Blitz Session" included in the Scientific Program Agenda..

Poster submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis until August 1, 2021
