“This was a really well-done course, far exceeded my expectations and is in a completely different league than most trainings I attend. I looked forward to this time each week and was instantly able to apply new techniques and ideas immediately after leaving class. I loved the ‘micro-skill’ and competency-based focus of our sessions--it really led to being able to instantly improve.”

“I am used to learning new skills via in- person multiday workshops so I wasn't really sure if this online format over multiple weeks would work and it really worked well! It was especially nice to be able to do this without having to travel, especially during this time of COVID. I am really looking forward to intermediate and deepening my knowledge and skills.”

“This was the highest quality training I have ever received in 12 years at the VA. It was up to date; beautifully managed and conducted and aligned with American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH) teachings. It allowed enough time to practice all the skills to competence.”

“This was one of the best trainings ever! The small groups were so valuable and the ability to practice with our colleagues very important. Lastly it was so effective to have the coaches move from small group to small group, so helpful. I am grateful for the ability to attend this training.”
