The Canadian Society of Clinical Hypnosis (B.C. Division) is an organization of professionals in medicine, psychology, dentistry, and other allied professions, who share scientific and clinical interest in hypnosis. The Society began as a component section of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH) and was incorporated in 1961 as the Canadian Society of Clinical Hypnosis (BC Division). Ours is an active Society which holds regular meetings for members to share their professional wisdom, and hosts several training workshops each year. We welcome attendance from members of the Societies in the other provinces, members of ASCH, and members of the International Society of Hypnosis (ISH). Most of our workshops are open to all regulated health professionals wanting to learn the art and science of clinical hypnosis.
