Developed by Jeffrey Zeig, the world’s leading expert in Ericksonian Hypnosis...

For over 30 years, Jeffrey Zeig, Ph.D., Founder and Director of the Milton H. Erickson Foundation, has advanced the revolutionary contributions made to psychotherapy by the late Milton H. Erickson, M.D., through intensive training and consultation programs.

Previously the mastery training with Zeig and the Foundation's top hypnosis authorities has only been available in person. Now, you can complete the 7-month mastery training program completely online.


Ericksonian Hypnosis can add additional power to your current clinical approach and make treatment more effective in a shorter period of time.


Hypnosis is gentle, collaborative and powerful in eliciting lasting change in clients, and when used in collaboration with other approaches such as Motivational Interviewing and CBT, studies have proven that clinical effectiveness increases and treatment time decreases.

Through mastery of the principles, applications and techniques of Ericksonian Hypnosis, you can expand the range of clinical conditions in which you are confident and skilled in treating.

In the mastery training, you're guided step-by-step through expert-prepared instructional video and skill-building exercises. Work through approximately two hours of program video each week, which you'll have unlimited online access to view at your convenience.

You'll also be part of an online clinical community, where you can engage in group chat discussions with other participants. 

Here's a brief snapshot of the course format:
