HYPNOSIS

A Primer of Clinical Hypnosis
By B. DeBetz, Gérard V. Sunnen
PSG Publishing Company, Inc., Littleton, MA, 1985


WHERE TO BUY

In "A Primer of Clinical Hypnosis," Drs. DeBetz and Sunnen show how hypnotherapy is increasingly integrated in the field of general medicine, in and out of hospital settings, and in psychiatry. A unique feature of the book allows the reader to note the different styles these two authors have in their approach to hypnosis. This serves to illustrate the fact that hypnotherapists evolve in synchrony with their own creative callings. Essential historical developments, current concepts, fundamental phenomena observed in hypnosis, and basic induction techniques are described in this book. Therapeutic applications are described as they relate to issues of patient care: anxiety control, pain abatement, healing and convalescence. The art of integrating hypnotherapy into psychotherapy for increasing the efficiency of symptom resolution is described in the chapter: "Hypnosis in Psychotherapy." The future of specialized hypnotic and meditative approaches to patient care is highly promising. This book serves as a primer to therapists dedicated to exploring that road.
