Master’s Course in Ericksonian Clinical Hypnosis - 12 Days

10° Edition

50 CME

Scientific Director: Nicoletta Gava

Our Master’s Course is addressed to clinicians who wish to learn hypnosis in a context that promotes debate and exchange between colleagues trained in different approaches. Since we believe in the value of multidisciplinary teams, the Course welcomes psychologists, psychotherapists, physicians, dentists, graduates and graduate students of such disciplines.

Our goal is to create a practical workshop in which participants can develop new skills through study, exercises and practice. In our experience as clinical trainers we noticed that in such environment each and everyone is able to develop personal induction styles that seamlessly integrate with their practice and personality.

Course Structure

After a short theoretical introduction, the training will proceed adopting an intensive, practical and experiential format: participants will go through exercises of increasing difficulty aimed at developing the necessary skills to conduct hypnosis sessions in their clinical practice.

Course Organization

The Course will take place over four monthly three-day sessions (fridays to sundays). Dates are available on the right side of this page.

Training times:

Fridays: 10.00 - 17.30
