American Pacific University, which started the Doctor of Clinical Hypnotherapy degree as the American Institute of Hypnotherapy in hopes of making clinical hypnotherapy an established field of study and profession has apparently given up. They are now transitioning to a university offering the Master's Degree in Transpersonal Psychology and the Bachelor's Degree in Transpersonal Studies. From their website: For learners currently enrolled* in the Clinical Hypnotherapy and Esoteric Studies degree programs at the Bachelor's and doctoral levels. *No longer accepting new learners into the Esoteric and Hypnotherapy Degree Programs. and to current students: POLICY CHANGE EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY AS OF JANUARY 15, 2008: All current hypnotherapy and esoteric degree program learners must submit their coursework via electronic mail, per a Student Notification sent to you December 14, 2006. So either Hawaii "cracked down on them" or they decided to go for DETC.
