This program is intended for physicians, psychologists, dentists,
counselors, social workers and professionals in related fields (see
admission requirements). It is intentionally labeled a workshop

it utilizes didactic presentations and demonstration, all participants
will be given supervised training in the induction of trance and
its utilization. Because of the emphasis on supervised practice,
the number of workshop participants is limited.

conversation times. There will be a variety of conversation topics
