Éva Bányai earns prestigious award
The professor emerita at the ELTE Institute of Psychology was presented with a Living Human Treasure Award in New Orleans for her achievements in the field of hypnosis research and her science organisation activity.

The Society for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis (SCEH) is an international professional association held in high regard by hypnosis researchers and clinicians, whose mission is to support the use of evidence-based hypnosis in research and practice across the world.

Éva Bányai, professor at the ELTE Institute of Psychology, received the Living Human Treasure Award for her paradigm-shaping research results in the scientific investigation and clinical applications of hypnosis (e.g., for developing the technique of active-alert hypnosis). Additionally, the association also wanted to draw attention with this award to her activities as a leader, mentor, and pathfinder at the international society for hypnosis. The recognition was presented to her at the 70th Annual Conference of SCEH held in New Orleans.

Founded in 1949, SCEH is an international organisation of psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, nurses, dentists, and physicians dedicated to the highest level of scientific inquiry and the conscientious application of hypnosis in the clinical setting.
