Manufacturer Description

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.
