It is with regret that I have to inform you that the MSHA has finally closed down.
The difficulties inherent in setting up and funding research during a time of recession has meant that the organisation has not been able to live up to its primary aim — that of promoting and developing research in the field of clinical hypnosis.
I would like to take this opportunity to let you know that the Chair of the MSHA, Ursula James, is not giving up on this aim — she is just changing tack.
As of April this year she became Visiting Professor in Clinical Hypnosis at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen. This is the first such appointment within the field in the UK. In this role, she will be heading up their new MSc programme in Clinical Hypnosis. The MSc will be open to all, and will allow for accreditation of prior learning (APL) from graduates of private training colleges for up to 50% of their previous studies — effectively allowing applicants with the appropriate entry requirements to complete the MSc in six months and for half the fee (expected to be £2,500).
Thank you for your interest,
Former Editor, MSHA eZine.
