Members Only


Membership - who is eligible?

Full membership in CSCH-OD is open to health care professionals who are regulated by a College  under the RHPA, the College of Social Workers or the College of Psychotherapists of Ontario (or their equivalents in other provinces or states) and who have a minimum of a Masters degree.

As an alternative, regulated  applicants who are without a Masters degree may declare in writing that clinical hypnosis is within their scope of practice and that they have had at least 3 years of clinical experience following graduation.  The latter applications will be evaluated on an individual basis by the Membership Committee.   

Graduate students in programs leading to Doctoral degrees in Psychology or degrees in Social work or Nursing, or degrees in Medicine, Dentistry, or Chiropractic are also welcome to apply to attend our workshops and may then apply for Intern and Resident membership. (Students must submit evidence of current full-time status in their graduate programs; this must specify which course and school they are in and must either be signed by their supervisor or be on a standard form produced by their University.)

Training requirement

A further requirement of Society membership is the completion of Introductory Training sponsored by CSCH-OD, by another ASCH Division, or any other hypnosis society acceptable to the Training Committee of CSCH-OD.

Completion of the CSCH-OD Introductory Training requires attendance at a workshop and successful completion of a mentored assignment within six weeks following the workshop.

Applicants who are eligible for full membership except for the training requirement can be admitted as Associate members until completion of their Introductory workshop and the mentored training which follows, when Full membership is granted. Associate Members have a maximum of 12 months to fulfil this requirement.

Full Members meet the eligibility and training requirements and have all membership privileges.

Associate Members meet the eligibility requirements and have all privileges except for voting, holding office, acting as chair of a committee, or receiving referrals from the Society.

Intern and Resident Members meet eligibility and training requirements. They have all privileges except for voting, holding office, acting as chair of a committee, or receiving referrals from the Society.


Annual dues are $160 for full members, $130 for associate membership, and $30 for Intern and Resident membership. Please note that our membership year is Jan 1st through December 31st.
