NESCH Seminars & Study Groups

The New England Society of Clinical Hypnosis provides professional training resources to promote the highest quality of clinical care in hypnosis. The Annual Workshop brings clinical hypnotists of international prominence to Boston, and the bi-monthly meetings offer unique learning opportunities to the professional community.

NESCH offers ongoing monthly Seminars and Study Groups in which members can expand their professional skill set. Hypnotic theory and technique are explored in a collegial atmosphere where participants can present their own work, as well as learn from the experiences of colleagues and instructors. Non-members of NESCH wishing to join a Seminar should inquire about membership in the Society.
