Overview

In the 25 years since the last edition there is still little cross- fertilization between clinicians and researchers regarding hypnosis, according to H. Spiegel (psychiatry, Columbia U.) and his son, D. Spiegel (psychiatry, integrative medicine, Stanford U. Medical Center). In this integrative effort, they define the phenomenon, debunk misconceptions, review the literature, and discuss their Hypnotic Induction Profile for assessing hypnotizability and its relation to psychopathology and treatment outcomes. Case studies illustrate clinical applications. Annotation © 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
