SCEH Callf or Papers 2015 Reminder

Call for Papers - Society for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis 66th Annual Workshops & Scientific Session

NEW!   Submission deadline extended to Monday, May 25, 2015.


The Society for Clinical & Experimental Hypnosis (SCEH) is now  accepting proposals for Workshops, Scientific Papers and Posters for its 66th Annual Workshops and Scientific Session.  Deadline for submissions is May 25, 2015 (new extended deadline).  This year's event is being held at the Rosen Plaza Hotel in Orlando, Florida, from September 30 through October 4, 2015.

The Society has held more than 65 annual events, and boasts a rich history in hypnosis training and research. Each Annual Conference comprises a Workshop track as well as a Scientific Session that features the latest research on clinical and experimental hypnosis. The Society includes some of the most advanced clinicians and researchers on hypnosis in the world among its membership.  Conference sessions are led by leading experts in clinical and experimental hypnosis.

Workshops are offered at the Basic, Intermediate and Advanced levels.  The aim of the workshops is to teach participants hypnotic theory and practical techniques for immediate use in professional practice. The educational approaches will consist of lectures, audiovisual presentations, and skill-practice groups. 

The Scientific Session 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. The poster session provides another glimpse into the latest research in the field.
