Now in its second edition, Trance & Treatment: Clinical Uses Of Hypnosis discusses the practice of hypnosis as a facilitator and diagnostic tool that psychologists can use in various treatment strategies. Arranged to echo the flow of a standard evaluation and treatment sessions, Trance & Treatment discusses how to use the author's "Hypnotic Induction Profile", a 10-minute clinical assessment procedure that connects hypnotizability to the patient's personality style. Further chapters cover use of hypnosis for smoking control, eating disorders, anxiety, concentration, insomnia, phobias, psychosomatic disorders and much more. An excellent source, drawing heavily upon systemtic data to support its investigation into the beneficial uses of hypnosis in the treatment of psychological dysfunction, and recommended for scientific students of hypnosis, particularly those interested in applying it to mental health practices.
