History of CSCH-OD

Ontario Division is a young organization. Since our inception, Ontario Division has been very active. Working with the optimism of the now-famous movie cliche, “If you build it, they will come!”, a handful of enthusiastic volunteers planned and held our first symposium in the fall of 2002, at which the esteemed surgeon and hypnotherapist, Dr. Dabney Ewin, presented a workshop on the use of hypnosis in treating psychosomatic disorders. It was a rousing success.

In September of 2003, we held our first multi-level training workshop at the Delta Meadowvale Hotel in Toronto. Introductory, intermediate and advanced workshops in hypnosis were offered. We also provided faculty training to senior Ontario hypnotherapists, and now have 13 certified trainers, who are qualified to teach here in Ontario.

At that conference, Dr. Daniel Handel, American Society Fellow and former ASCH President, presented an exciting advanced workshop on the “Use of Hypnosis in Pain Management”.
