Workshop Eligibility

Introductory Workshop:  Available to all Licensed/Registered Health Care Providers and students enrolled in programs leading to this professional designation. *

Intermediate Workshop:  Available to Licensed/Registered Health Care Providers who have completed Introductory training approved by CFCH-AS as consistent with the standards set by the American Society of Clinical hypnosis or of equivalent quality (assessed on an individual basis).  Participants are encouraged to take Intermediate level training before moving on to the Advanced Workshops.  Intermediate level workshops provide more participation in training due to smaller group sizes and comparable levels of experience by the participants. *

Advanced Workshop:  Available to Licensed/Registered Health Care Providers who have completed Introductory training as defined above.  Intermediate level training is not required prior to attending Advanced Workshops. *

* Note:

Non-psychotherapists:  Health Care Providers who do not practice psychotherapy will only be allowed to attend Intermediate or Advanced Workshops that contribute to the understanding and use of Hypnotic Language to induce trance states that would ease anxiety and discomfort for patients during health care.  They will not be allowed to attend more advanced training in the Psychotherapeutic Practice of Hypnosis.

Students:  Must provide written proof of current, full-time registration in a program of study that would result in licensing/registration in a regulated Health Care profession.  This qualification must be met in order to register for Introductory, Intermediate or Advanced Hypnosis workshops.  Attendance may be limited so students are encouraged to apply early.
