Société québécoise d'hypnose

Amongst the pioneers in hypnosis in Québec (Canada) from 1938 to 1983, it is important to mention Dr. Bernard Raginsky M.D., Montréal psychiatrist, who in 1938 published a major article entitled Hypnotism and its relation to anesthesia. The article constituted the beginning of a long history of international contributions and collaborations. In 1959, he established the International Society for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis, which in 1973 became the International Society of Hypnosis.
