Making the Connection: Hypnosis and Its Interplay with the Brain, Body, and Awareness


Neuroscience and research on hypnosis have advanced our understanding of brain activity changes associated with hypnosis. Evidence shows the effectiveness of clinical hypnosis in treating mental, emotional, interpersonal, and physical disorders.

The 2023 ASCH Annual Scientific Meeting and Workshops will provide participants with an in-depth understanding of the science and empirical research that subserves the effective practice of hypnosis and informs our clinical applications. Specific clinical content areas will include military-specific methods of serving our Veterans, trauma, pain management, dental and medical applications, integration of hypnosis and psychotherapy, altered states of consciousness, metaphysical phenomena, and spirituality.

Two Advanced Pre-Conference workshops, daily Plenary sessions, 30+ Advanced Workshops, and Symposium presentations are planned for ASMW 2023.
