How Clinicians Learn to Integrate Hypnotic Tactics and Strategies into Psychotherapeutic Interventions
AbstractTherapeutic suggestions administered within a hypnotic context can improve the efficacy of psychotherapeutic interventions in dealing with a wide range of clinical problems. Hamburg (2006) illustrates how he overcame both theoretical barriers and tactical issues in treating two clients who presented with fear of dying. His account calls attention to the need to help clinicians make the transition from introductory hypnosis training programs to actually applying hypnotic tactics and strategies in the clinical context. The development of clinical and experimental hypnosis and behavior therapy have influenced each other more profoundly than has generally been acknowledged. Theoretical barriers to the use of hypnosis in behavioral therapies are more apparent than real.
