Professors from these Colleges
Imagine if you could hand pick your choice of graduate-level professors from the top Universities in Southern California and then assemble them to empower your hypnotherapy practice with a broad education in Clinical Psychology, that teaches you the newest, most interesting, innovative, and applied models and concepts in psychology and alternative health available today. Then imagine that this personally interactive, comprehensive education was delivered to you in just one year, in two evenings a week, all from the convenience of your own home. HMI’s Associate in Occupational Studies Degree in Mind-Body Psychology does that and more.
