Welcome

The American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH) was founded by Milton H. Erickson, MD in 1957. ASCH promotes greater acceptance of hypnosis as a clinical tool with broad applications. Today, ASCH offers professional hypnosis training workshops, certification, and networking opportunities that can enhance both professional and personal lives.  ASCH is unique among organizations for professionals using hypnosis. Members must be licensed healthcare workers and, at a minimum, must hold a doctorate, PA Certification, APRN, CRNA, or master's degree in a health care discipline considered appropriate by the Society. 

As an interdisciplinary organization, ASCH provides an opportunity to learn from and interact with colleagues in other health and mental health care disciplines. This allows for a cross-fertilization of ideas and applications that meshes neatly with current trends, such as mind-body health and integrative medicine. Regardless of whether you are a professional wanting to learn hypnosis, or a patient wanting help with a problem, take your time and enjoy the visit to our site.
