Being their friend, I can say two things; one, the training will be as questionable as any other, and two, the training will also be as suitable as any other. Hypnosis training--as it is available today--is a bit of an oxymoron. You get trained, yes, but much of what you learn is outdated, irrelevant, or just plain wrong. (Now please note that I am speaking to lay-hypnosis training, from organizations like the ABH, IACT, and NGH, among others.) More simply, whatever training you get cannot stand alone. You must continue to train, irrespective of the course you choose. I only recommend one trainer for non-psychologists: George Bien. He has an exceptional training style and is one of the few trainers who actually possess a deep understanding of the subject. Most trainings (sadly, the Academy's too) lack emphasis on the basics; for instance, most graduates of weekend certification courses cannot adequately answer simple questions like, "What is the difference between hypnosis and imagination?" or, "Is hypnosis real? Where's the proof?" Vast lapses in quality like this is why Division 30 continues to push for legislation to eliminate such trainings altogether. I happily pay my APA membership dues every year for this reason alone. While George and I have different views regarding training, our work at IMBRE (www.imbre.org) tends to infuse George's trainings with more science than most others. Still, I recommend you give him a call: http://www.georgebien.com. Hope this helps. Best, James. [/quote]
