A.M. Krasner Ph.D. was the founder and director of the American Institute of Hypnotherapy (AIH) in Irvine, California. An innovator in hypnotherapy in the US, Dr. Krasner practiced in Rhode Island for over 20 years before moving to Southern California in the late 1970s where he continued developing his methods. In 1980, he founded the American Institute of Hypnotherapy (AIH) to teach clinical hypnotherapy to others.
Based in California (School no. 3004761), the American Institute of Hypnotherapy (AIH) was a State approved educational establishment under the jurisdiction of the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Vocational Education (BPPVE). Degree granting authority at that time came from the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction under the provisions of Section 94310.3 of the Education Code of the State of California.
Until 2007, the BPPVE was the state agency vested with the authority to approve and regulate private postsecondary institutions in California and was charged by the California legislature with the mandate to encourage the development of strong, vigorous and widely respected sector of private postsecondary education. State 'approval to operate' meant that the BPPVE had determined that at the time the institution was reviewed, it met standards established by the bureau for integrity, financial stability and educational quality.
Under California law, AIH was licensed to teach bachelor degree programs and to offer a Doctorate in Clinical Hypnotherapy (DCH). Although originally offered as a PhD program, state regulators mandated that this award in clinical hypnotherapy be re-titled as a Doctor of Clinical Hypnotherapy (DCH) and modeled on a PsyD type program in which more emphasis is placed on clinical practice than on research. The DCH program was developed to train practitioners who would keep up with research but might choose not to engage in research themselves. The American practice of recognizing specialist institutions for specialty disciplines allowed the AIH to offer these facilities for practical training and off-campus study. In order to obtain a doctorate, students had to have attained a Bachelor Degree level of education. AIH offered an opportunity to study diverse applications in hypnosis via a wide range of hypnotherapeutic educational modules including the fields of healthcare, psychotherapy, self-development and business (see 1998 curriculum of courses at end of this document).
The California State Legislature has determined that state licensing may not be conferred upon an occupational group for purposes of status or prestige. Hypnotherapists are not issued licenses by any State Governmental Agency to engage in their professional services.
