Overview

This thorough revision of the first edition, updates and expands, with 25 percent new material, what was generally recognized as a major survey of contemporary scientific research in hypnosis. In this edition, also a classic, the editors include three new essays in modern hypnosis studies. They also provide a new conceptual framework--cognitive, ego-psychological, and phenomenological--with which to examine hypnosis.

This edition is divided into six sections--Theoretical and Historical Perspectives, New Theories, Surveys of Broad Areas, Lines of Individual Research, Individual Researches within Specific Areas, and Anticipations for Future Research. The entire book was completely revised in the light of additional research since publication of the original edition. Thirteen of the twenty chapters in the first edition were updated by their authors, six so extensively that they amount to new chapters, with changes in title and order of authors in the case of coauthored chapters.

Hypnosis: Developments in Research and New Perspectives is intended for researchers in hypnosis and clinical practitioners in medicine and psychology. The focus, as indicated by the changed subtitle, is on developments since publication of the original editions: empirical studies, experiments with physiological indicators of hypnosis, and theoretical uses associated with use of hypnosis as a research tool. Altogether, this second edition is a valuable overall guide to an intriguing topic.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“We are told that hypnosis has undergone unprecedented expansion in the last two decades in the U.S.A., both in research and practice, and that this survey is intended for the student and research worker… [T]he scientific method as described in this book has been successfully applied both in England and in the U.S.A. to the study of hypnosis itself… We owe… a debt of gratitude to the editors of this book for their excellent account of this development in the U.S.A.”

—A. Spencer Paterson, British Medical Journal Supplement
