CME DISCLOSURE FOR CONFERENCES
The Milton H. Erickson Foundation is proud of the conferences and other educational opportunities it sponsors, taking care that the conduct of these activities conforms to the standards and principles of behavioral and medical sciences, thus ensuring balance, independence, objectivity and scientific rigor in all individually sponsored or jointly sponsored educational activities.
All faculty members participating in a sponsored activity, and those who review and therefore are in control of content, are requested to disclose any relevant financial relationship prior to the CME activity, including but not limited to specific commercial interests, financial remuneration received by faculty member or spouse, and what role or activity was performed for this remuneration. If a conflict of interest exists as a result of a financial relationship it will be resolved prior to the activity. A faculty member will not be allowed to present if the conflict is not or cannot be resolved.
The CME goals, of The Milton H. Erickson Foundation, Inc., are to provide educational programs designed to teach professionals in the health sciences what and how to apply current knowledge and skills in their practices. As a result, these professionals will improve their overall knowledge, performance and patient outcomes. Our CME programs are designed for psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers and master level counselors who practice psychotherapy. Some programs are also applicable for physicians, nurse practitioners and dentists.
The scope of the CME effort is directed primarily to education in psychotherapy. The activities and services we provide are conferences, seminars and workshops.
The CME program also is designed to further the worldwide understanding and practice of medical and clinical hypnosis and hypnotherapy by promoting, in every ethical way, the contributions made in the field by the late Milton H. Erickson, M.D. We work to integrate Ericksonian technique into all reputable fields of psychotherapy and medicine.
The Milton H. Erickson Foundation is justifiably proud of the conferences and other educational opportunities it sponsors, taking care that the conduct of these activities conforms to the standards and principles of behavioral and medical sciences, thus insuring balance, independence, objectivity and scientific rigor in all its individually sponsored or jointly sponsored educational activities.

(Relevant financial interest or other relationship can include such things as grants or research support, employee, consultant, major stockholder, member of speaker’s bureau, etc.). The Foundation’s compliance with these standards assures that potential conflicts of interest are identified prior to our educational activities.
