Handbook of Clinical Hypnosis
For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
Once relegated to the realm of the supernatural, hypnosis has increasingly moved into mainstream psychology. On the basis of several decades of theory, research, and clinical practice, hypnotherapy is now considered a legitimate intervention methodology for the treatment of psychological and medical disorders in a variety of clinical contexts.
The editors of Handbook of Clinical Hypnosis have called upon leading clinical theoreticians, practitioners, and researchers to contribute state-of-the-art, integrative summaries of hypnotherapeutic approaches. The Handbook surveys the wide range of orientations and applications of hypnotherapy: from models, techniques, and procedures to clinical and research applications in behavioral medicine, sports and forensic psychology, and the treatment of psychological disorders such as anxiety, stress, trauma, and multiple personality.
This softcover edition is a re-release of the 1993 hardcover edition.
