If you don’t yet know who Milton Erickson, M.D. was, or his methods which pioneered modern medical hypnotherapy, you can have full confidence that this course will provide you with what you need to know.  The textbook for this course was written by Dr. Richard Nongard and James Hazlerig, M.A. and is 5-star reviewed on Amazon.

In addition to the 200+ pages of resources, and scripts,  you will get access to 16 audio lectures teaching you Ericksonian hypnosis. These lectures include demonstrations – so you can master the skills of helping others while experiencing hypnosis yourself.

This course holds the keys to Ericksonian approaches to hypnotherapy, and they unlock how to apply the solution oriented strategies of Milton Erickson, M.D. to a modern application of his ideas. This course will teach you how to tap into the treasure trove of resources Milton Erickson left us through his writings, case studies, and books.

Listen to the lectures online – or download them for mobile listening – learning on the go!


We offer this 40-hour Multi-Media CE course in addition to our 24-hour Gold Level Certification program, for two reasons:

Most hypnosis practitioners desire to receive advanced continuing education training on clinical hypnosis (which we encourage, because the more training you have, the better services you will provide), primarily for the reasons stated above in the course descriptions, and to enhance their ICBCH Certification status.

State of Florida licensed professionals must meet a 50-hour training requirement in order to practice “hypnotherapy” for therapeutic purposes, illness, injury or disease, under Florida Statute Regulations.

Once you successfully complete the 24-hour Basic program – and then this 40-hour Advanced program:

If you are a Certified Hypnotist (C.Ht.), and have now completed a total of 64-hours of training, you may advance your ICBCH Certification level to the Certified Professional Hypnotist (C.P.H.) designation.

Licensed professionals who have already earned the Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist (C.C.H.) recognition will then receive a new certificate denoting their endorsement of Advanced Certification (C.C.H./A.C.)
