The New England Society of Clinical Hypnosis presents:

The 67th Annual Max Shapiro Workshop in Clinical Hypnosis (formerly known as the Level I Training)

Max Shapiro, Ph.D. is the Director Emeritus of Training and Research for the New England Society of Clinical Hypnosis.  This program was renamed in recognition of Max’s many years of dedicated service to the Society, as well as to the community at large.  Max was more than an exemplary teacher, he carried on the legacy of his own mentor, Harold Golan, in his dedication to the advancement of hypnosis for the benefit of patients and clinicians alike.

Where: Live via Zoom.  Login information will be provided the week of the training.

Workshop Description: Clinical hypnosis deepens the work of mind-body practices such as mindfulness meditation. Adding hypnosis allows clients/patients to become even more deeply aware of their inner states and fosters awareness of their own strengths, resources and problem-solving abilities. Extensive research has been done demonstrating its effectiveness in treating a number of mind-body conditions, expediting habit change, facilitating pain management and enhancing treatment of depression and anxiety.

This intensive workshop will allow participants to receive in-depth training in both the theory and practice of clinical hypnosis.  The didactic includes presentations, demonstrations and experiential exercises.  The practices and tips will be from some of New England’s leading hypnosis practitioners.  They will act as teachers and mentors in small group practice sessions tailored to the specific needs, interests, and learning styles of participants.

Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to incorporate the following in their clinical practice:

  • Identify and demonstrate four ways to facilitate hypnotic trance and appropriately reorient patients from a trance state.
  • Demonstrate three strategies for facilitating intensification of trance.
  • Describe four conditions in which hypnosis might be successfully utilized.

Open to physicians, doctoral or master’s level licensed healthcare professionals, and dentists.

CE hours/CMEs: This two-weekend course has been approved by the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis. 22 CE hours and CMEs have been applied for. Please note that attendance at all sessions is required to earn continuing education credit for this program.


Regular: $650.
