Hypnosis : A Jungian Perspective

Overview

This innovative work integrates modern hypnotherapy with Jung's analytic psychology, successfully linking the skilled practice of hypnosis with the Jungian vision of the human psyche. As developed by Hall, the Jungian conceptualization of hypnosis draws on the theory of psychological complexes and their participation in the sense of self-image that inevitably is a part of the ego.

Overview

This innovative work integrates modern hypnotherapy with Jung's analytic psychology, successfully linking the skilled practice of hypnosis with the Jungian vision of the human psyche. As developed by Hall, the Jungian conceptualization of hypnosis draws on the theory of psychological complexes and their participation in the sense of self-image that inevitably is a part of the ego. Hall's succinct yet thorough review of the Jungian model of psychological functioning conveys the essence of Jung's view of the psyche while elucidating its suitability as a basic framework for hypnotherapy.

Examined in particular are Jung's view of the reality of the psyche, Jungian dream interpretation, and the technique of active imagination. Hall clearly shows how the Jungian understanding of dreams is the basis for an understanding of active imagination, and how active imagination, in turn, serves as the foundation for other imaginal techniques. In this theory, then, hypnosis comes to represent a specialized use of the imaginal ability of the mind.

The book's detailed review of the clinical applications of hypnotherapy within a Jungian model focuses primarily on the two basic types of hypnotic intervention: (1) those that produce artificial complexes in order to modify and counterbalance pathological complexes; and (2) those that help to "dissolve" complexes from the past that are interfering with current growth and individuation. Other clinically oriented discussions address critical issues concerning transference and countertransference, which may be abruptly manifested during hypnotherapy. In addition to the author's "suggestions on suggestion," there are illuminating case examples and anannotated induction protocol that demonstrate the practical application of the principles described.

For the practicing Jungian analyst, HYPNOSIS: A JUNGIAN PERSPECTIVE encourages beneficial cross-fertilization between traditional analysis and hypnotherapy. For the therapist involved with hypnotherapy but unacquainted with Jung, this landmark volume promotes the judicious clinical application of basic Jungian principles.

    For the Jung at heart

    This book is probably a great book if you view life from the Jungian perspective, and is much a book about the Jungian approach as it is about hypnosis. It is not a how to do it book by any means, but designed to allow those with Jung's leanings to make use of hypnosis. Very few Jungian hypnotherapists exist, and in that sense the book is great as it opens up a new avenue for those with a mindset that didn't allow for use of hypnosis. But for others it may be a disappointment. Not an easy read, it requires a basic knowledge of the Jungian perspective to understand. If you don't have that, read some Jung first, and then the book will be more meaningful and useful.
