About Dave Elman and the Elman Legacy Global Zoom Conference

The Dave Elman Medical Hypnosis Course was attended by thousands of physicians, dentists and psychiatrists from 1949-1962. Dave and Pauline Elman traveled around the US, teaching a 10 week course, until Dave’s heart attack in 1962. During this time, an evolution of Dave Elman’s techniques was brought about and enhanced by the collaboration with the physician and dentist students. The ‘students’ field tested methods as they worked with their patients and would then share their successes and failures with the class. Successes would at times be added to the Course Syllabus. Thus he course material kept evolving.

Dave Elman produced audio recordings of the Course by using live recordings in the classroom during the late 1950’s. After his heart attack he was unable to travel but continued to brain-storm techniques with his former students via telephone, a practice which continued until his death. In 1964, he published his book, “Findings in Hypnosis” now published as “Hypnotherapy” which is considered one of the classic hypnosis books and is required reading for many hypnosis courses.  Dave devised a rapid induction which he referred to as his ‘3-minute routine’ and is known today as the Dave Elman Induction (D.E.I.). Many schools teach it, and many hypnotists use it as their go-to induction because it is highly effective and has world-wide appeal.

This Conference is a Celebration of the legacy of Dave Elman and his hypnosis methods plus to continue to build upon them. Dave and Pauline Elman ensured, via their Course, that medical professionals throughout the United States would be able to combine and expand knowledge of Medical Hypnosis. Today this exchange of Medical Hypnosis knowledge can now be global through the magic of Zoom! Featured Speakers and global presenters will bring alive the Dave Elman experience as it influenced them personally and professionally, and will look at his work in current terms. Thus, the Evolution of Hypnosis continues as Dave Elman’s ongoing influence is documented today.
