HYPNOTHERAPY AUDIO PRODUCTION
Anyone may attend - minimal prior learning assumed.
Basic computer literacy required.

Leeds 23-Feb-08
Ever since the advent of tape-recorders therapists have added value to their treatments by giving patients recordings for use when back home. In many cases there are substantial advantages in patients being able to 'refresh their memories' whenever they need to. This is particularly the case with weight control and smoking.

Hypnotherapy Audio Production refers to the art and science of generating Hypnotherapy CDs and audio files for sale to the general public and to give to your clients.

A lot has changed since the advent of tape-recorders both in terms of patient expectations and in terms of the available technology. Many patients expect high quality CD recordings and may be unable to play audio cassettes even if they wanted to.

The objective of this course is to equip you with all the knowledge and information that you need in order to generate high-quality CDs mainly using your PC or Mac. The non-computer based options will be discussed in passing - the emphasis will be on PC based setups (Mac based setups are more or less identical).

This Masterclass will appeal to the technically minded wanting to fill gaps in their knowledge as well as technical novices that just want to get up and running quickly. You do not need to have the latest and best equipment and you do not need to expensive audio gear to generate good quality audio CDs.

Current / future Practitioner Diploma students will find that the course will enable them to rapidly and easily generate the recording(s) required for their exam.

You will leave the course with a comprehensive set of reference notes supported by web based resources, including exactly what to buy and where. Technical detail will be included in the appendices for advanced users.

The day will be highly interactive with multiple live demonstrations of the techniques / issues being discussed. Those with laptops are encouraged to bring them in so we can set them up during the day (installation CDs for the most common audio editors will be available).

Frequently asked questions

Q: What are the web based resources?
A: Essentially a mini-website requiring a userid / password to access it located on www.changingstates.co.uk

Q: Will it cover how to setup a web shop in detail?
A: eCommerce options will be overviewed during the course with copy and paste code examples available via the support site. The course covers the big picture - the support site covers the low level technical detail.

Q: How technical do you need to be to benefit?
A: Willingness to learn and experiment is more important than pre-existing knowledge. Some level of basic computer literacy is however required. If you know what a mouse is then you can probably benefit.

Q: What's the minimum I need in terms of equipment?
A: A computer with a working sound card with the capacity to record and a CD writer if you want to generate CDs yourself.

Q: Can anyone attend? Do you have to be an LCCH student or BSCH registered?
A: Anyone at all may attend which is also true for most (if not all) other Masterclasses.
