Clinical Hypnosis and Self-Regulation: Cognitive-Behavioral Perspectives
Some people have strong negative attitudes toward hypnosis, precluding its use. Clinical Hypnosis and Self-Regulation: Cognitive-Behavioral Perspectives presents a cognitive-behavioral perspective on the use of hypnotic suggestion in psychotherapy and attempts to break down the barriers that have inhibited clinicians from using a powerful, empirically validated clinical tool. Readers will gain exposure to the cutting edge of hypnosis theory, the ways in which suggestibility can be measured and enhanced, the integration of suggestive procedures with cognitive-behavioral interventions, and the use of suggestion with people whose negative attitudes preclude the use of hypnosis. Readers will also find in this volume the empirical base of the theories and procedures that are presented.
