Welcome to The International Hypnosis Research Institute Web site. Our intention is to support and promote the further worldwide integration of comprehensive evidence-based research and clinical hypnotherapy with mainstream mental health, medicine, and coaching. We do so by disseminating, supporting, and conducting research, providing professional level education, advocating increased level of practitioner competency, and supporting the viability and success of clinical practitioners. Although currently over 80% of our membership is comprised of mental health practitioners, we fully recognize the role, support, involvement, and needs of those in the medical and coaching fields. This site is not intended as a source of medical or psychological advice. Tim Brunson, PhD

In August 2009, the International Hypnosis Research Institute announced the availability of two new certifications. These are the Mind/Body Integration and Advanced Neuro-Noetic HypnosisTM certifications. Both are currently available only in a distance learning format. They are designed to help integrative health care professionals improve their ability to enhance client and patient healing. These certifications and their individual courses are intended to appeal to a wide range of professionals. These include medical doctors, dentists, nurses, social workers, psychologists, hypnotherapists, counselors, chiropractors, massage therapists, and others.

The Mind/Body Integration certification program covers theory that is based upon leading-edge research and provides participants with numerous demonstrations and exercises, which they are encouraged to begin using immediately. The intent is for students to appreciate the good evidence-based science foundation of the theories presented and quickly see results as techniques are applied to real cases. The program is based upon a realization that clinicians must have a high level of competence when communicating with the mind's of their patients. Therefore, this program relies on the most effective and proven ideas including direct suggestion, permissive methodologies, and advanced neurologically-based interventions. Even though the course is designed to accommodate experienced hypnotherapists, those with little or no experience with hypnosis and guided imagery will find how easy it is to apply the presented demonstrations. This certification includes 36 lessons organized in 4 courses.

The Advanced Neuro-Noetic HypnosisTM certification builds upon the skills presented in the four Mind/Body Integration courses. The focus of this certification is on developing clinical competency in three major areas, which includes performance enhancement, resolving mental pathologies, and improving physical healing. This certification concentrates on the student mastering advanced theory and effectively applying the lessons learned in real-life therapeutic settings. The program moves from concept to application, which includes improving session design. The uniqueness of the curriculum is that it applies rather advanced neurological and mind/body integration concepts to everyday clinical situations. This certification includes a total of 78 lessons organized into 12 courses. The 36 Mind/Body Integration courses are included in this program. Students who complete this program will receive both certifications.

Certification candidates enroll in individual courses. Upon completion of each course they are informed of their progress toward final certifications. Institute members receive a 25% discount off of the tuition for each course. Additionally, renewing members who have free course eligibility may take individual certification courses at no charge.
