Taught By Erickson expert, Bill O'Hanlon

*42 Continuing Education (CE) Clock Hours for Behavioral Health Professionals

Though therapeutic hypnosis has had many great practitioners make significant contributions in both research and application, few have left as much of a defining mark on hypnotic form and practice as the psychiatrist, Dr. Milton Erickson. Weaving non-directive approaches, rich in metaphor and complexity, Erickson was able to help people experience radical and positive change.

In the years after his death, Dr. Erickson's student (and sometime gardener), Bill O'Hanlon, worked to translate the sometimes mystical work of Erickson into a form that others could learn and apply in their own clinical practice. O'Hanlon made it his mission to help others learn the transformational methods of Ericksonian Hypnosis, and he has trained thousands of people throughout the world in Dr. Erickson's clinical approach.

In this online course, O'Hanlon takes the lessons that he learned studying under Erickson, along with with his own decades of experience as a psychotherapist, hypnotherapist, and clinical trainer, and has curated the best of it all in these engaging lessons and hypnosis demonstrations. As O'Hanlon is moving away from live training, he wanted to make sure he could still empower people, and he believes that this course has let him distill his most stand out lectures and hypnotic demonstrations to create, what he confidently believes is, his most complete hypnosis training ever! Do not miss this opportunity to learn from one of the masters of Ericksonian hypnosis.

"The course was great and I loved hearing stories about Milton Erickson. Bill was able to deconstruct Erickson’s work and maintain the magic that is Erickson. That is the mark of a great teacher"

- Barbara Wohlander, Past Clinical Social Worker of the Year by the California Society for Clinical Social Work’s (CSCSW)
