We are a Florida professional association dedicated to the clinical application of hypnosis by licensed physicians, dentists, psychologists, podiatrists, clinical social workers, marriage and family therapists, mental health counselors, chiropractors and nurses, who qualify for training and membership.
The FLORIDA SOCIETY OF CLINICAL HYPNOSIS is an awarded component chapter of the American Society for Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH). We offer training workshops in both Basic Hypnosis and Advanced Hypnosis, designed to fulfill licensing requirements and to provide professional growth and knowledge
for workshop participants. We are fortunate to have master clinicians in our
organization to provide much of this training, and often have
nationally recognized practitioners as well.
As defined on the ASCH website under the Public tab,
"Hypnosis is a state of inner absorption, concentration and focused attention. It is like using a magnifying glass to focus the rays of the sun and make them more powerful. Similarly, when our minds are concentrated and focused, we are able to use our minds more powerfully. Because hypnosis allows people to use more of their potential, learning self-hypnosis is the ultimate act of self-control."
Under that same tab, there is much more information as well as answers to frequently asked questions. We hope you will find these links helpful.
We believe that clinicians should practice the relaxation we teach our clients as part of their own life care. For that reason, our workshops are usually held in
relaxing Florida resort locations so that our participants and their families can build vacations around them. The combination of extensive learning, collegiality, and
family enjoyment contributes to the warmth and meaning many of our members
experience from our Society.
We welcome your interest, and invite you to explore our website and the announcements of upcoming workshops.
