About the Conference

The 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. 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. 

In addition to keynote presentations, the Scientific Program includes Research Presentations, Symposia, and a Poster Session. The workshops component of the event features Introductory, Intermediate/Skills and Advanced Clinical Hypnosis Workshops. Workshops meet accepted Standards of Training in Clinical Hypnosis. Several networking events round out the program. Attendees can earn up to 25 CEs which also count toward SCEH Hypnosis Certification Programs.

The Society expects to open registration in early July. The Annual Conference is open to those who meet SCEH membership eligibility criteria.  Learn more about SCEH membership or review a list of member benefits.  Please bookmark the #SCEH2021 conference page for more details and event announcements:
