Intensive Hypnotherapy Training Program
Roy Hunter's Professional Hypnosis Training Course


Diversified Client Centered Hypnosis Course
In 2-two week segments: Early April, 2017, and June, 2017

In 2017, Roy Hunter, MS, CHt and Bruce Eimer, Ph.D., ABPP will be co-teaching Roy Hunter’s full hypnotherapy certification course at the Behavior Therapy Center, just outside of Philadelphia. The first two quarters will be a two-week intensive, followed by a two-week intensive for the last two quarters several weeks later. This course is approved by both the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association (IMDHA) as well as the Association for Professional Hypnosis and Psychotherapy (APHP).

Continuing Education Credits

Each course quarter will provide a total of 45 continuing education hours of training.  Each two-week intensive will provide a total of 90 continuing education hours of training. Successful completion of both two-week intensives (four weeks) plus 30 hours of homework will fulfill the education requirements for full membership and certification with the IMDHA and APHP, as well as the International Association of Counselors and Therapists (IACT). All three of these organizations also recognize these credit hours for purposes of fulfilling the mandatory 30 hours of annual continuing certification.

Additionally, licensed psychologists who successfully complete any of the course quarters will be awarded 45 Continuing Education Credit Hours for that quarter.  Our organization, The Behavior Therapy Center, P.C. & Bruce Eimer, Ph.D., is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. The Behavior Therapy Center, P.C. & Bruce Eimer, Ph.D., ABPP, maintain responsibility for this program and its content.
