Woodard Hypnosis and Research
University of Hawaii

Biography :

Dr. Fredrick Woodard began his study of hypnosis as an undergraduate student reading about and experimenting with hypnosis. He went on to two lay hypnotist organizations where he received a Doctor of Clinical Hypnotherapy (DCH) from the American Institute of Hypnotherapy at Santa Ana, California in 1992, and a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Clinical Hypnotherapy from American Pacific University at Hawaii in 2003. He received a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Clinical Psychology from California School of Professional Psychology at Fresno, California, an American Psychological Association (APA) accredited school, in 2002. He also attained three Masters in different areas of psychology from the University of West Georgia at Carrollton Georgia; American International College at Springfield, Massachusetts, and California School of Professional Psychology, respectively. He trained in hypnosis at the Milton Erickson Institute in Arizona and has also done extensive training in clinical hypnotherapy during training in psychotherapy. Dr. Woodard is a great grandson of Chief Madockawando, the Grand Sachem of the Abernaki Nation of Acadia and Maine, from the 1690’s, and of Revolutionary Soldier Captain Amos Woodard of Pittsford, Vermont. Dr. Woodard’s great grandmother Susanna Capen was the great grandmother of Ulysses S. Grant who was the 18th President of the United States of America. Just as these and other ancestors fought for individual freedoms and rights, Dr. Woodard emphasizes freedom of thought in his writings as he addresses subjective experiences, spiritual experiences, and altered states. Dr. Woodard was not satisfied with general psychological explanations of hypnosis in the literature, as they did not completely reflect his own personal and clinical experience. He began to formulate his own theory of Perceptual Hypnosis and published his first journal article, “Hypnosis and Phenomenological Perceptual Psychology” in the Journal of Clinical Psychology in March 1996. His theory was further developed in his doctoral dissertation in 2001. He followed the publication of his dissertation with a series of articles in Psychological Reports (2003 through 2012) that described in detail his theoretical approach to perceptual awareness, spirituality, and hypnosis. His private practice in clinical hypnotherapy and psychotherapy is located in Milford, New Hampshire. He has been a Registered Clinical Hypnotherapist since 1991 and a member of the American Board of Hypnotherapy since 1992. He is also a full member of the American Psychological Association and the New Hampshire and New England Psychological Associations. He is also a full member of Division 30 APA - Psychological Hypnosis, Society for Scientific Exploration, DBHRT - New Hampshire Disaster Behavioral Health Response Team, and American Canadian Genealogical Society. It was while working with patients over the years with stress and pain management, depression and anxiety, and other psychological maladjustments that he discovered the real benefits and potential of hypnosis and especially self-hypnosis. He has also used this process with well adjusted individuals seeking to explore and expand their human potential and achieve self-growth.

Soren Ventegodt

Soren Ventegodt
Director
Quality of Life Research Center
Frederiksberg Alle 
Copenhagen V
Denmark

Biography :

Dr. Søren Ventegodt was born in 1961. His father was a historian specialised in maritime history and co-editor of the large Gyldendal Danish Encyclopaedia, his mother a nurse with a master degree in French. When Søren was 10 years old his younger brother Jesper died in a terrible drowning accident, which awakened Søren’s spiritually and he soon became interested in philosophy, science, sport and arts. At age 11 years, he started to write poetry, play music and read books on chemistry and at age 13 years he had his own chemistry lab in the family basement, which he continued to develop though his teenage years. Gifted with a special talent for science he entered the University of Copenhagen at age 18 years and after studying chemistry, philosophy and finally medicine, he entered the research field of theoretical biology. During his last years at the university he developed a highly controversial theory of quality of life (QOL) and the state of consciousness as the primal factors causing disease including cancer. His research in quality of life soon became popular with the general public and in 1992 the Pharmacist Foundation of 1991 awarded him, while still a medical student, a grant of 600,000 Euro for his research in quality of life and health. The University Hospital in Copenhagen (Rigshospitalet) and the late pediatric professor Bengt Zachau-Christiansen helped him to establish the Quality of Life Survey using the Copenhagen Perinatal Birth Cohort 1959-61 as the sample for the research. This way the Quality of Life Research Center (QOLRC) was established in 1993 at the University Hospital. In 1994 this institution became one of the first independent QOL Research Centers in Northern Europe and moved to its present location in the center of old Copenhagen with Søren as its director. In 1997 the Research Clinic for Holistic Medicine was established. More than 100 peer reviewed scientific papers have now been published, making the QOLRC one of the worlds most productive centres of new medical knowledge in the field of clinical holistic medicine – “quality of life as medicine”. In 2003 the Scandinavian Research Institute for Working Life Quality (NFA) was established in Oslo, Norway based on the ideas, books and materials produced by Søren Ventegodt. In 2004 the Nordic School of Holistic Medicine was established at the QOLRC. He also participated in establishing the International Society for Holistic Health (ISHH) in 2004. In 2006 he became director of Nordic Campus, Interuniversity College, Graz. Søren Ventegodt is today the author of 10 popular books (some of them best sellers) and hundreds of papers and articles in magazines and scientific journals. He is often used as a speaker on QOL and holistic health throughout the Nordic countries. Through more than 1,000 presentations and lectures at most of the universities and large companies in Denmark he has made 100,000 Danes understand the fundamental quality of life concepts. After more than 1,000 presentations in the national medias, from the nine a clock news to national TV- and radio programs and the front pages of the leading newspapers during the past 14 years, the Danish society at large now seems to have assimilated the key message: that you can improve your QOL and thus prevent disease and even improve your health and ability if you are sick, unhappy or poorly functioning. He is also working on several international text book series i.e. “The Principles of Holistic Medicine” together with professor Joav Merrick, MD, DMSc. He is a permanent member of the organizing committee arranging international conferences on Holistic Health together with the ISHH (International Society for Holistic Health), which he initiated in Copenhagen in 2004. His most ambitious project is starting a holistic research hospital and he is working to raise the funds needed for the establishment. The hospital will take the scientific holistic medicine to the next level, which is the phase 3 clinical studies, documenting the effect of the new drug-free medicine on a large number of patients with many different diseases from cancer, autoimmune diseases, and chronic pains to schizophrenia and existential, developmental and psycho-sexual problems. His dream is that in 2030 many more physicians will use holistic training programs to help their patients fight the diseases instead of just giving bio-medical drugs, which often is not effective with chronic illness.
