  • Individualized consultation by our renowned faculty
  • A personalized, professional experience to enhance your hypnosis skills
  • Participating in peer to peer consultation in addition to individualized consultation

Individualized Consultation Virtual Workshop:

  • Personalized and Peer Mentoring
  • Provides extensive, individualized mentor consultation to clinicians ready to enhance their knowledge and expertise in the use of pediatric hypnosis.
  • Fulfills partial requirements for attaining ASCH Certification in Clinical Hypnosis and/or an ASCH-Approved Consultant.
  • Unique format: Clinicians consult in a small group (max = 6) with rotating faculty facilitators (ASCH Approved Consultants).

In addition to thoughtfully-matched faculty consultation, this model expects participants to learn from one another and to have their own expertise affirmed and expanded. During the consultation sessions, the focus is on issues unique to each practitioner’s practice as reflected in their video submissions. Participants must present a video-recording of hypnotic work with a pediatric patient and a corresponding typed case vignette of the video. A firm deadline for video submission is July 21, 2021. A “how to” guide to help learners develop effective video recordings will be provided. Prior to registering for this workshop, a required application must be submitted for review. See instructions below.
