Hypnotherapy and Hypnoanalysis

Excerpt

This book was written in response to the needs of many professionals who have sought training in clinical hypnosis. We have tried to fold into a single volume a comprehensive review of the scientific understanding of hypnosis, above all, a detailed account of the typical hypnotic procedures with emphasis on the wording of suggestions, and a rationale for and il- lustration of hypnotherapy and hypnoanalysis that is well grounded in clinical theory and research. We have included in the book what we have found to be most useful from the many workshops on clinical hypnosis we have taught to professionals over many years.

This book represents 15 years of collaboration, which began while Dr. Brown was a graduate teaching and research assistant to Dr. Fromm, a re- lationship that was to evolve into a mutually enriching and rewarding col- leagueship. It is the outcome of many joint teaching efforts, collaborative research projects on hypnosis and self hypnosis, and numerous discus- sions of our clinical hypnosis cases over the years. The teaching curricu- lum that served as the basis for this book was originally devised by Dr. Fromm for her courses at The University of Chicago, The Society for Clin- ical and Experimental Hypnosis, and elsewhere. This curriculum was modified and refined through clinical observation by Dr. Brown on the various applications of hypnosis to a large number of patients repre- senting a wide range of presenting problems in a diverse patient popula- tion at The Cambridge Hospital/Harvard Medical School and in a group private practice of hypnotherapy.

While the book represents all that we have learned from each other over these years, it also represents all that we have learned from others.
