BSCAH is a Society for Health Care Professionals whose members are also trained in the medical use of hypnosis.
The logo symbol denotes:
Medicine: serpent and staff of Asciepius
Psychology: Greek letter psi which is used to represent Psychology
Scholarship: flame and torch usually used to represent knowledge/scholarship and the staff doubles as a torch.
BSCAH is divided into seven geographical regions, each region being referred to as a Branch.
Branches work within the ethos of BSCAH and have their own internal organisation, usually comprising a Chair, Hon Sec and Treasurer. Branches hold their own funds, submit their annual accounts to the National Office, and are supported financially when necessary. Each Branch is represented by at least one member on Council, produces its own programme of events and Branch meetings and runs Foundation training in hypnosis using a corporate syllabus.
