About Dr Assen Alladin

Dr. Assen Alladin was a Clinical Psychologist and Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Calgary Medical School. He was a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine, President-Elect of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis and Conference Coordinator and Past President (two terms) of the Canadian Federation of Clinical Hypnosis – Alberta Society. He practiced and taught hypnosis, cognitive behaviour therapy, psychotherapy and clinical psychology for over 30 years. His study on Cognitive Hypnotherapy for Depression won Best Research Paper from The American Psychological Association in 2005.

Dr Alladin was rightly called one of the “leading lights” of modern hypnotherapy. He published four books on evidence-based hypnotherapy. His book Cognitive Hypnotherapy for Emotional Disorders: An Evidence-Based Approach is a modern classic and is not only on the shelf of many practising hypnotherapists but is regularly referenced when therapists want solid guidance on working with emotional disorders. In addition to his books on hypnotherapy, Dr Alladin published over 20 articles in peer reviewed academic journals and contributed chapters to ten major textbooks on hypnosis. In particular Dr Alladin has published extensively on Cognitive Hypnotherapy for Depression and Anxiety.
