As announced our September newsletter, SCEH is expanding the educational opportunities we offer and introducing a new Midyear Workshops event in 2018, an initiative that came out of our strategic planning efforts.  The program is being co-sponsored by Division 30 of the American Psychological Association, and we hope it will help grow awareness and membership in both organizations.

The Mid-Year Workshops will take place from April 20-22, 2018 (Friday - Sunday) at the Radisson Hotel Albany, Albany, NY. The Advanced Workshop will be a wonderful program by Dr. Carolyn Daitch on Power Tools for Anxiety and Affect Regulation: Effective Integration of Hypnosis, Cognitive-Behavioral, and Mindfulness Interventions.  Drs. Don Moss and Eric Willmarth will present a 20-hour Basic/Introductory Workshop in Clinical Hypnosis that is consistent with the Standards of Training in Clinical Hypnosis and partially meet SCEH Certification training requirements.

Please see below for more details on this initiative.

Poster Submissions Still Being Accepted on a Rolling Basis for SCEH 2017 Chicago Conference 

Posters are still being accepted for the Society's 68th Annual Scientific Program in October in Chicago. SCEH invites researchers and clinicians to submit posters addressing empirical issues in the science of hypnosis and related topics, including suggestibility, placebo effects, and contemplative practice. The SCEH meeting provides a unique venue for presenting and integrating rigorous data-based findings in an atmosphere conducive to constructive criticism and debate.
 
Poster presentations allow authors to concisely present a case report or data that can be easily grasped in this format. Poster presentations often permit more discussion between presenters and attendees and may be especially advantageous for students, clinicians, and new investigators. Authors will be expected to stand by their poster and be prepared to answer questions about its content during the poster session. The submission should clearly specify that the submission is for a poster presentation.
 
Presenting a poster at the SCEH Scientific Session is an excellent opportunity to present fully completed research studies or clinical case studies, pilot studies as well as preliminary research. It affords presenter the opportunity to gain valuable feedback from leading clinicians and researchers in the hypnosis field, both in group and one on one discussions. It also gives presenters experience in the poster format and a forum to expand their professional relationships.
 

Pre-submission inquiries can be sent to the Scientific Program Chairs:  

  • Zoltan Kekecs, PhD
    Email: kekecs.zoltan@gmail.com
  • Shelagh Freedman, PhD candidate
    Email:  shelaghfreedman@gmail.com
The Poster Session takes place prior to the Annual Awards Banquet on Saturday, October 28. Poster presenters must register for the conference.  Full details can be found at: http://www.sceh.us/call-for-papers
