Editor's Note.

Welcome to this issue of the Journal of Heart-Centered Therapies. We present an article of scholarly work researching hypnotic therapeutic intervention, a 1998 doctoral dissertation submitted by the author. We actively invite you to submit an article on a relevant subject for publication in the Journal.

"Hypnotic Psychotherapy in the Identification of Core Emotional Issues" by Constance Spencer, attempts to address the retention and integration of core issue awareness into daily patterns. The study presents a thorough theoretical and empirical investigation into the integration of elements of intrapsychic, cognitive/behavioral, body oriented, and interactional approaches in Hypnotic Psychotherapy. The research is oriented to understanding the frequent outcome of accelerated processing of information indicative of a shift of cognitive structures (assimilation of core issue and positive beliefs) and insight into behavioral patterns. Hypnotic psychotherapy is especially capable of ameliorating the effects of earlier memories that contribute to dysfunctional beliefs. The dysfunctional beliefs often develop into the core issues of shame, abandonment, and guilt, post-hypnotic narrative therapy was used to examine the resolution of initial core issue psyche injuries. This study seeks 1) to assess the contribution of hypnotic psychotherapy to the identification of the core issues, 2) to assess the amelioration of dysfunctional negative cognitions, and 3) to assess the integration and retention of positive cognitions utilizing post-hypnotic narrative therapy.
