Hypnosis has always captured the attention of some of the most creative thinkers in the field of psychology. Today, hypnosis and hypnotic phenomena are studied with state-of-the-science neuroimaging techniques, and hypnosis has informed cognitive science (and vice-versa) in meaningful ways. In this second edition of the landmark Handbook of Clinical Hypnosis, editors Steven Jay Lynn, Judith Rhue, and Irving Kirsch have undertaken a significant revision and update to their classic text, first published over ten years ago. It is divided into six sections: Foundations and General Considerations, which includes chapters on the history of hypnosis and measures of hypnotizability; Theories of Hypnosis, in which hypnosis is examined within the context of various therapeutic constructs; Hypnotic Techniques, which includes a how-to primer for trained therapists to conduct hypnotic inductions, as well as chapters about the integration of hypnosis with mindfulness strategies; Treating Psychological Problems and Populations, which discusses the use of hypnosis in treatment for depression, PTSD and Anxiety; Health and Sport Psychology, which examines hypnotic treatments for pain control and surgery as well as for maximizing athletic performance; and finally Further Issues and Extensions, which addresses, among other things, popular and cross-cultural conceptions of hypnosis. Handbook of Clinical Hypnosis, Second Edition is the comprehensive resource for clinicians, researchers, and anyone interested in the theory and practice of clinical hypnosis.

Despite their clinical utility, hypnotic phenomena are vastly underutilized by therapists in their work with patients. Whether this is due to uncertainty about how to use specific techniques constructively or how to elicit particular phenomena, or anxiety about not being able to obtain a desired result, this volume will guide hypnotherapists toward higher levels of clinical expertise. By describing varied hypnotic phenomena and how they can be used as vehicles of intervention, The Phenomenon of Ericksonian Hypnosis takes the therapist beyond these fundamental applications toward a broader, more sophisticated scope of practice. This immensely readable book addresses the selection, eliciting, and therapeutic use of hypnotic phenomena that are natural outgrowths of trance. It offers step?by?step instruction on eliciting age progression, hypnotic dreaming, hypnotic deafness, anethesia, negative and positive hallucination, hypermnesia, catalepsy, and other hypnotic phenomena. The book includes specific instruction on how to use the phenomena manifested in trance to provide more effective treatment. Numerous case examples vividly illustrate intervention with anxiety disorders, trauma and abuse, dissociative disorders, depression, marital and family problems, sports and creative performance, pain, hypersensitivity to sound, psychotic symptomatology, and other conditions. The Phenomenon of Ericksonian Hypnosis will be used by therapists as a valuable clinical tool to expand their conceptualizations of hypnosis, and thus enable them to offer a wider repertoire of skills with which they can confidently treat clients.

Practical Clinical Hypnosis

The use of hypnosis can be traced as far back as 3000 B.C., when references were made in writings to "temple sleep" and to enchantment by the "evil eye." Since the sixteenth century, clinical hypnosis has been a controversial medical tool in the treatment of both physical and psychological maladies. Clinical hypnosis can be of potential help in a number of ways: mobilizing resources and strengthening motivation; developing and amplifying a relaxation response; providing access to material not usually accessible with other more conventional methods; confronting suppressed memories that are impeding progress; putting the client in touch with newer, more effective ego states; enhancing imagery for hypnotic or other techniques; and allowing for vicarious rehearsal of more effective behaviors and cognitions. In this comprehensive handbook, Robert G. Meyer examines the applications of hypnosis throughout history while offering step-by-step guidance for its clinical use today. Drawing on case studies from the available literature as well as from his own practice, Dr. Meyer presents various methods, including preliminary considerations, induction and deepening techniques, indirect and Ericksonian techniques, direct suggestion and posthypnotic techniques, and age regression and self-hypnosis. He also examines the use and effectiveness of hypnosis on habit and psychological disorders, pain management, dentistry, medical disorders, performance enhancement, children, and forensics. Finally, the book discusses ethical and legal issues and provides extensive guidance for the hypnotherapist who finds him or herself in court. Practical Clinical Hypnosis is unique in its interdisciplinary approach to the subject, and is essential to all practicing mental health professionals - for those new to hypnosis and those already practicing it - including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, counselors, and students in these disciplines, and also dentists and physicians who use or are considering using hypnosis on specific patients.
