Accreditation/Continuing Education Credits

The American Society of Clinical Hypnosis-Education and Research Foundation (ASCH-ERF) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The American Society of Clinical Hypnosis-Education and Research Foundation (ASCH-ERF) designates this live activity for a maximum of 20 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

ASCH-ERF is approved by the American Psychological Association to offer continuing education for psychologists. ASCH-ERF maintains responsibility for the regional workshops. The ASCH Standards of Training Committee has approved all regional workshops as meeting the twenty hours required for membership and certification requirements.

Courses approved by the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis are approved continuing education courses per Florida's AC-Rule 64B-4-6002 for Social Workers, Counselors and Marriage and Family Therapists in the State of Florida.

ASCH applies to the NASW for continuing education approval for each workshop. Approval status is posted on the website once it has been received.

ASCH-ERF is designated as an approved PACE program provider by the Academy of General Dentistry. The formal continuing education programs of this program provider are accepted by AGD for Fellowship, Mastership, and membership maintenance credit.  Approval does not imply acceptance by a state or provincial board of dentistry or AGD endorsement. The current term of approval extends from 10/1/2015 - 9/30/2021.

California Board of Behavioral Sciences Accreditation
Please note that effective July 1, 2015, the California Board of Behavioral Sciences (CBBS) is no longer renewing existing CE provider numbers.  ASCH-ERF’s accreditation through CBBS expired on December 31, 2015.  BBS licensees now obtain their continuing education through the National Association of Social Workers and the American Psychological Association, among others, both through which ASCH-ERF maintains accreditation.      

If you have any questions about obtaining credit from other CE providers,  please contact Kathy Matousek, Education Manager.
