Saybrook’s College of Mind-Body Medicine sends two representatives to the annual meeting of The Society for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis in Toronto.

Drs. Donald Moss and Eric Willmarth, two faculty members from Saybrook’s College of Mind-Body Medicine will attend the annual meeting of The Society for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis (SCEH) in Toronto, October 10-14.

Drs. Moss and Willmarth will conduct a two part workshop on October 11, with the morning focused on the integration of hypnosis and biofeedback therapies for chronic pain, and the afternoon focused on medical and psychological applications of heart rate variability biofeedback.

Dr. Moss will present a piece of historical research on Erwin Straus, a European phenomenological psychiatrist, who investigated the relationship dimensions of suggestion. Moss will also serve as a facilitator in the intermediate training workshops in clinical hypnosis. Moss is the Treasurer for SCEH, and Willmarth is the SCEH liaison to the American Psychological Association (APA) Division 30, so both will participate in the organization’s board meeting. Both Moss and Willmarth have been honored as Fellows of SCEH.

Through workshops, lectures, publication of the International Journal for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis (IJCEH), and other teaching activities of SCEH, members educate health care professionals, academicians, researchers, students and the general public about the nature and ethical uses of hypnosis and related phenomena.
