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.

ASCH Announcement: Ongoing Upgrades to Our New Database Management System and Website

ASCH purchases/transactions to be delayed until May 6

Starting in May 2024, ASCH is transitioning to a different database management system and website processor. This upgrade introduces an improved, user-friendly system that simplifies the process of making purchases, renewing memberships, registering for events, and managing your contact information, among other features. During the change over, we will be halting any purchases on the current site until we are migrated fully to the new processes. We apologize for any inconvenience during this transition.
