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

Announcing the Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist (CCHt) Designation

Over the past several years many of our members and readers have asked if they could certify through the Institute. Although some time ago we announced a specialty certification and an advanced certification (Certication Programs), traditionally we did not offer any opportunity to formally recognize a basic hypnotherapy practitioner certification. We have always accepted all of the credentials provided to us by our members. Also, providing a full spectrum of certifications was not part of our original plan. However, we now are full engaged with the community of clinical hypnotherapists and integrative health care providers. We must listen to the needs being expressed. Therefore, it is now time for a change.

Starting on Tuesday, April 21, 2010, we will initiate a new program, which will formally accept clinical hypnotherapist certifications issued by reputable nationwide or international clinical hypnotherapy-oriented organizations and associations. This will constitute an official recognition of such accomplishment by our members. Approved applicants will be considered as Certified Clinical Hypnotherapists and authorized to use CCHt credentials after their name.

This program is only available to Institute members. Others may join so that they can take advantage of the certification process. Existing members may apply for the CCHt credentials. The procedure is outlined on our certifications Web site.
