Workshop Outlines
Dr. Weil has developed three levels of workshops- beginning, intermediate and advanced- for interested parties. The beginning workshop offers a first exposure to hypnosis. The intermediate workshop offers further skill development for those with previous hypnotic training. The advanced workshop, designed for the seasoned practitioner, offers a case consultation model of learning. At all levels of training, Michael utilizes didactic and hands-on, skill building methods to teach hypnosis.
