The Clinical Course leads to three different Certificate of Advanced Clinical Hypnosis - CBT - FPS Courses and a One Day Mental Health Module - CBT - FPS.
All training includes the Focussed Psychological Strategies (FPS) which are important for psychologists who provide Medicare FPS related, mental health care item number services. Please note that the hyposis component of the training is adjunctive to the CBT and FPS components which form the foundation platform for the use of hypnosis, and that hypnotherapy is not an FPS per se.
Thousands of nationally AHPRA registered health professionals trained. Most participants are psychologists, medical practitioners, mental health AASW registered social workers and mental health nurses, and also include general nurses, midwives, dentists, OTs and other AHPRA registered health professionals
Completion of the Clinical Certificate Course and any one of the three different Advanced Clinical Certificates and a further Single Day Module leads to the Diploma of Clinical Hypnosis (CBT-FPS) and then to the Diploma of Advanced Clinical Hypnosis (CBT-FPS).
The One Day Mental Health Module does not include formal hypnosis and contains one ALM. The Advanced Clinical Courses each contain 6 one day Active Learning Modules. The Advanced Clinical Courses are available to graduates of the Certificate of Clinical Hypnosis (CBT-FPS) Courses.
The 2017 Advanced Clinical Course includes key principles from the work of Professor Milton Erickson who was a psychologist and a medical practitioner and psychiatrist. There are two other separate Advanced Clinical Courses, one includes the Clinical Approaches of Dr Fritz Perls and Gestalt Therapy (2018) and the other includes Hypnoanalysis, Somnambulism and Regression (2019). The three Advanced Clinical Courses rotate, one each year.  
Lunch, morning and afternoon tea, relaxation recordings and a handbook are included with all training.   
All training is approved for FPS-CPD for general medical practitioners by the GPMHSC and psychologists can use this as a guide for FPS-PD requirements (see Notes below).
