Course overview

Hypnology is the study of Hypnotism; it has persisted through the ages as men have tried to determine the true nature of Hypnotism and the state of Hypnosis. Since modern science took a hand in investigating Hypnotism, many previously well established concepts and theories have receded into obscurity; and what has emerged, is the notion that Hypnotism is a form of Applied Psychology. The course will help you to discover more about this fascinating subject.
