The Hypnosis in Research, Medicine and Clinical Practice course at Bournemouth University has been developed to meet the needs of practising healthcare professionals and research psychologists with key units being taught over weekends or condensed into one week, and the other units being taught on just two days a week with the option of part-time study available.
You can opt to exit the course with either a PG Cert or PG Dip qualification after taking relevant units. The full MSc qualification will be ideal for graduate students with plans for a future in clinical / medical practice and those looking to be trained in the research methods required for PhD level study.
A key benefit of the MSc is that it contributes a minimum of 72 hours towards the European Certificate of Hypnosis, awarded by the European Society of Hypnosis. If you are studying for a PG Cert or PG Dip you will gain credits towards the European Certificate of Hypnosis (and CPD if required).
You will be trained in the use of hypnosis and will be able to apply it in a range of clinical and research settings depending on your profession and experience. Graduates without a clinical background will be qualified to use hypnosis in ethically approved research protocols, and in clinical and medical settings in the presence of, and following a request from, a suitably qualified clinical or medical specialist.
You will learn and acquire the full range of skills necessary to succeed in both clinical and academic fields in areas such as the National Health Service, private healthcare, and university postgraduate research.
You will be prepared to undertake further training for roles such as:
