BSCAH BSMDH RSM LogosThis year's UK conference is jointly organised by the British Society of Clinical and Academic Hypnosis (BSCAH), the British Society of Medical and Dental Hypnosis - Scotland (BSMDH-Scotland), and the Royal Society of Medicine, Section of Hypnosis and Psychosomatic Medicine. It takes place on the 25th-27th March 2011 at the Glynhill Hotel, Renfrewshire, Scotland.

The title of the conferences is 'Hypnosis: Fit for purpose in a modern world'. There is an open call for scientific papers, and this year's keynote speaker is Dr Amir Raz:

"Dr. Amir Raz heads the Clinical Neuroscience and Applied Cognition Laboratory at the JGH Institute of Community and Family Psychiatry (ICFP) and investigates attention, expectation and the neural correlates of altered states of consciousness including hypnosis. An associate professor in psychiatry and Canada Research Chair at McGill, Dr. Raz works with children and adults and conducts experiments on how attention controls internal processes such as cognition, emotion, thought, and action. A former magician, he studies the psychology of misdirection and the power of suggestion to influence psychological and physiological components. Dr. Raz came to the JGH and McGill in April, 2007 from Columbia University. He hopes his research will be elucidating to how suggestions can influence brain."
