Articles & Book Reviews

  • Myths and misconceptions about hypnosis and suggestion: Separating fact and fiction    We present 21 prominent myths and misconceptions about hypnosis in order to promulgate accurate information and to highlight questions for future research. We argue that these myths and misconceptions have (a) fostered a skewed and stereotyped
    view of hypnosis among the lay public, (b) discouraged participant involvement in potentially helpful hypnotic interventions, and (c) impeded the exploration and application of hypnosis in scientific and practitioner communities. Myths reviewed span the view that hypnosis produces a trance or special state of consciousness and allied myths on topics related to hypnotic interventions; hypnotic responsiveness and the modification of hypnotic suggestibility; inducing hypnosis; and hypnosis and memory, awareness, and the experience of nonvolition. By demarcating myth from mystery and fact from fiction, and by highlighting what is known as well as what remains to be discovered, the science and practice of hypnosis can be advanced and grounded on a firmer empirical footing.

  • The physical and psychological effect of pre-recorded online Hypnotherapy in the form of Hypno-meditation.  This is the first known study of its kind. The purpose is to assess the potential impact of pre-recorded online Hypno-meditation as a mitigating tool in the reduction of stress and depression in a population. These results provide evidence that pre-recorded Hypno-meditation delivered via online means has the potential to be effective in mitigating stress and depression in an at-risk population that also reports immediate lifestyle changes.

The material is divided into two sections: one is quick suggestions regarding the many ways hypnosis and hypnotherapy can be utilized by a general practitioner hypnotherapist; the second focuses on practice building ideas for the hypnotherapist.
