Message From Our President

If you’re visiting this site for the first time, we hope you’ll find the resources you’re looking for in regard to clinical hypnosis – whether locating a practitioner or joining us as a professional.

If you’re already a member of NCSCH, you’ll notice a new look to the site. We’re excited about our updated design that will make it easier for you to post your profile for the public, get information about our conferences and generally keep up with all that we’re doing. The design will also make it easier for new members to join NCSCH, and, perhaps most important, the site will make us more visible to the general public when they search for hypnosis resources. We hope you like it!

In our region, the NCSCH continues to be the premier professional society for advancing the practice of clinical hypnosis. Along with the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis, we remain dedicated to upholding the highest standards of training and to ensuring that licensed healthcare professionals have access to that training. Whether you have come to this site to find help through hypnosis or you’re a professional seeking training and/or membership, we welcome your interest in hypnosis and in NCSCH. We have exciting conferences planned for 2014 and 2015 and hope you will save the date for the 2014 conference in your calendar.

You may have heard about this year’s conference featuring Joseph Barber, Ph.D., which will be held on November 14 and 15 at Rigmor House in Chapel Hill. For those of you who do not know him, Dr. Barber has held positions as a Clinical Professor in the School of Medicine at the University of Washington; Associate Clinical Professor at the UCLA School of Medicine; and Director of Psychological Services, Pain Management Center, UCLA School of Medicine. In addition, he long maintained a private practice in psychology. He is the author of several articles and books on pain management, brief therapy, hypnosis and memory, accessing hypnotic responsiveness and rapid induction analgesia. Since he has recently retired from UW, we feel especially fortunate that he has agreed to lead our conference.

We expect to have very good attendance and urge you to take advantage of the lower price that comes with your membership and register while the Early Bird rate is in effect. If you’re not already a member, please join us.

We look forward to seeing you at this year’s conference.

Finally, I’m delighted to announce that thanks to the perseverance of our treasurer, Frank Gantz, NCSCH has reached a major milestone: We are now a 501 C (6) under the IRS giving us tax-exempt status. Many thanks to Frank for his efforts!
