In this reprise of Hypnosis and Counselling in the Treatment of Chronic Illness (2002)--the new title reflecting the fact that cancer is increasingly becoming a chronic illness, members of the British Association for the Person Centered Approach to Counseling and Education address the question of: "If hynoptherapy is so good why are doctors not using it?" Following a brief history of hypnotism, Frank and Mooney argue that hypnotherapy can successfully treat psychosomatic aspects of organic illness. The book includes case studies and exercises but not updated references.
