Douglas Flemons, PhD is Professor Emeritus of Couple and Family Therapy at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, FL, where, for over 30 years, he offered team-based live supervision and taught graduate courses on hypnosis and meditation, systems thinking, brief therapy, writing, suicide, and sex therapy. A licensed MFT and an AAMFT Clinical Fellow and Approved Supervisor, Dr. Flemons is the author of The Heart and Mind of Hypnotherapy, as well as an earlier book on hypnosis and brief therapy (Of One Mind); co-editor of three editions of Quickies: The Handbook of Brief Sex Therapy; and co-author of Relational Suicide Assessment. He has also written books about systemic therapy and Eastern philosophy (Completing Distinctions) and academic writing (Writing Between the Lines). Flemons presents nationally and internationally on hypnotherapy and meditation, empathy, brief therapy, sex therapy, suicide prevention, and suicide assessment. From 1993 to 2019, he offered an (almost) annual 50-hour hypnosis intensive for clinicians; he now teaches it online. In 2020, Flemons relocated with his wife and colleague, Dr. Shelley Green, to Asheville, NC, where they maintain a telehealth-based private practice for clients in Florida and North Carolina. In 2021, the American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis presented him with the Milton H. Erickson Award for Scientific Excellence in Writing on Clinical Hypnosis for his article, “Toward a Relational Theory of Hypnosis,” published in Volume 62(4).
