(Special techniques of hypnosis)

Forensic hypnosis is a specialized technique of hypnosis that can be used to help people retrieve forgotten memories, that were either forgotten or repressed for ego protection. It can be used safely by anyone who knows these techniques to retrieve the forgotten memories without causing or bringing up any negative feelings.

This technique can be learned by anyone wishing to learn these specialized forms of hypnosis. We have taught these techniques to many law enforcement personnel, who use it with crime victims or witnesses to recall additional details about the incident. It has also been used by many people successfully to find lost objects.

These techniques are taught in a specialized training program either in a conference format or in the Video DVD home study program.

The only requirement is that a student must have successfully completed basic hypnosis in order to understand and use these techniques.
