International Society of Hypnosis


International Society of Hypnosis (the "Organization" or "ISH") is organized and operated exclusively for charitable* scientific, and educational purposes, primarily scientific and educational purposes, to promote and engage in education and research in the discipline of hypnosis. Its members include psychologists, psychiatrists, physicians, dentists, and others. ISH through its members' activities and its own meetings and publications sponsors and fosters scientific research and the dissemination of scientific knowledge to the public, both lay and medical professional, and among its own members. The scientific and published materials sent with the original Form 1023 evidence the overwhelming emphasis placed by the Organization on scholarly research and publication. The Organization does not have any non-charitable, non-scientific, or non-educational purpose or purposes which is or are substantial in nature. Indeed, it is not organized or operated for any purpose which is not charitable, scientific, or educational.


It is not the purpose, operation, or action of the organization in any degree to promote the common business interests of its members. The organization is not organized or operated to promote high professional standards in a particular specialty as is typical of many section organizations, While its members include psychologists, psychiatrists, physicians, dentists and others, it does not regulate any of these professions and does not regulate any 'profession of hypnosis' which in fact does not exist. Hypnosis is simply a therapeutic modality used by health care professionals as a part of their practice.
