2.2 What is the difference between an Experienced Institute and an Institute in Cooperation?
When we founded the WHO one of our main ideas was that Experienced Institutes with many conducted Hypnosis training seminars should offer new "Hypnosis Master Trainer, WHO" some kind of support during their first Hypnosis seminars. Therefore, we decided that we offer this support for new "Hypnosis Master Trainer, WHO" in a form of cooperation with Experienced Institutes during their first 7 “Hypnosis Practitioner, WHO” training seminars. This support is up to now not formalized. So it is up to the Institute in Cooperation and the Experienced Institute to fill this according to the individual situation. Mostly the new "Hypnosis Master Trainer, WHO" was trained from the Experienced Institute, so that they know each other very well and are able to decide on this common history how to organize this in a fair win-win.
