Who Can Join?
NCSCH is a professional society, and is open to individuals who are licensed health care professionals with either a doctoral or master's degree in medicine, psychology, dentistry, social work, marriage and family counseling, licensed professional counseling, nursing or chiropractic (or who are post-graduate students working toward one of these degrees).
Members of the general public are not eligible to join the Society but the Society provides services to the general public by offering information on these web pages and by providing member contact information for those who wish to utilize the skills of one of our members if you require professional services. Be aware that the NCSCH does not verify members qualifications and skill level. Ethical and skillful utilization of clinical hypnosis is the responsibility of the member clinician.
Clients/patients as consumers of professional services are obliged to use the same good judgement in your decision to work with any of the members listed in this site as you would with any other service provider.
We believe that hypnosis should be used for health purposes, and delivered by licensed, trained health care professionals. We are an active society that engages in training, promotion of the use of hypnosis, research and collegiality and consultation among our members. What characterizes our Society is a spirit of professionalism combined with a strong sense of community. We are a warm, welcoming organization that provides expert training in hypnosis in an atmosphere of collegial support and consultation. We believe we have much to offer to health care professionals who have or want to develop an interest in hypnosis. We can enhance your effectiveness as a clinician and increase your referrals.
