The American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH) is unique among organizations for professionals using hypnosis because members must be licensed healthcare workers with graduate degrees.  

As an interdisciplinary organization, ASCH not only provides a classroom to teach you how to use hypnosis as a tool in your practice, it provides you with a community of professionals from different disciplines that helps you grow not only as a practitioner but as a person.

From the classroom to the community, ASCH helps you grow as a practitioner and a person.

 
The ASCH membership year runs from July 1st through June 30th of the following year. Please note that initial membership applications for membership are peer-reviewed, and therefore can take as little as two weeks to as much as eight weeks, depending upon when the initial application is received.

Benefit Details

 

Attend trainings.  Becoming a member of ASCH entitles you to significant discounts on all ASCH educational programs.  This discount can be worth up to $200 off of workshop registration fees.  Most training through ASCH doesn’t just offer credit towards ASCH Membership and Certification. Training taken at the majority of ASCH Regional and Annual Workshops offers training that is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the American Psychological Association (APA), Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), and the National Association of Social Workers (NASW).  For a full listing of ASCH Accreditations, click here.

Listing on the ASCH Referral Database.  As a Full Member of ASCH, you can choose to be listed on our public referral list of qualified clinical professionals who use hypnosis in their practice.  This list generates thousands of hits by the public each year and can be a beneficial tool in growing the use of hypnosis in your practice.

American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis (AJCH). Membership in ASCH provides you with a quarterly print subscription to the AJCH (value $216).  Membership also gives you online access to all issues of the AJCH from 1958 forward.

ASCH Newsletter.  Receive the quarterly ASCH Newsletter with clinical columns, videos, and podcasts.

Discounts on Certification.  The ASCH Certification Program is gaining national recognition as a standard for the practice of hypnosis. In fact, anecdotal evidence suggests that hospitals and third-party payers are beginning to recognize the importance of such standards and view ASCH Certification as a basic requirement for promoting hypnosis as a treatment modality.  As an ASCH Member, you are entitled to a $200 discount off of your initial Certification and $60 off of Certification renewal.
