The Online Institute at www.TrancSociety.org/institute.html periodically adds new course offerings for basic certification as well as advanced specialist programs with the Society of Experiential Trance for Continuing Education Unit credit, certifications of completion, professional specialization certification, and much more. This dynamic growing program is poised to expand over the coming years.
No one under the age of majority may examine for the Advanced Skills Hypnotherapy specialization. Likewise, one must have earned at least a two-year college or university degree to be eligible for Hypnotherapy specialization with the Society of Experiential Trance. Previous specialist certification in Hypnotherapy is required before seeking the Advanced Skills Hypnotherapy specialization.
This is an optional certification program. These are skillsets taught by others that the Executive Board of the Society of Experiential Trance reccommend to those wishing further competence training in advanced skills that are useful for the professional hypnotherapist. There are obviously many other highly useful skills. However, these are particular sets that we have found to be intriguing or useful. Their inclusion here in no way implies any relationship or connection with the originators of the programs. Nor should inclusion here imply complete endorsement of the techniques or processes. However, these are are considered very powerful or influential processes and worthy of knowing.
While most of these are considered non-hypnotic or even non-trance processes, for the purposes of SET certification, examinees should demonstrate each process from memory within an hypnotic context with formal induction, deepening, process, compounding suggestion, and emerging.
Note the required number of demonstrations for each skill in each type of Examination. Live Exams should be scheduled with a Certified Examiner. Please note that Video Exams require that the hypnotist work with a minimum of five different trance partners. See certification guidelines for further information.
Candidates who have taken a live course with an SET Certified Instructor have one year to finish their Specialist Certification requirements by submitting and passing an exam (live or video). Additionally, if they submit a video examination for evaluation by their instructor, the number of demonstrations required are the same as those indicated in the Course or Live column rather than those indicated in the Video exam column. If they complete their Specialist Certification requirements within one year, then the Specialist Certification is gratis for those who are currently Certified Hypnotist members in good standing with the SET. Those who are not currently Certified Hypnotist members may receive a Certificate of Completion for their course instead, if they are enrolled as non-certified Associate Members of the SET.
Video Notes These special skills are not all formally taught by SET but are highly recommended for those seeking further skill enhancement. Please seek training from appropriate persons for these skillsets leading to a special skills certificate. Prerequisites for the Special Skills Hypnotherapist designation include Hypnotist and Hypnotherapist designations. As noted above, while most of these are considered non-hypnotic or even non-trance processes, for the purposes of SET certification, examinees should demonstrate each process from memory within an hypnotic context with formal induction, deepening, process, compounding suggestion, and emerging. 3D Mind 3 4 Tom Vinzinni Core Transformation Process 2 3 Connirae Andreas and Tamara Andreas Emotional Freedom Technique 2 3 Gary Craig Hyperempiria (Separate Induction-Visualization Combinations) 3 5 Don Gibbons The Journey 1 1 Brandon Bays Timeline Therapy 2 3 Tad James Original Processes or Patterns (Create and demonstrate three wholly new and original hypnotic processes or trance patterns, write them up for publication in the SET Newsletter and possible archival on the forum or webpages (submit both hard copy and electronic versions of the files), and in examination orally explain each process from memory and then demonstrate each with at least two individuals for course or live examination and three for video examination). 6 (3X2) 9 (3X3)
