Hypnosis has been shown to enhance the effects of treatment in general, and CBT in particular, making treatment more effective and with more enduring results. Hypnosis as a field is supported by a body of scientific literature that is broad, deep and fascinating, addressing issues such as information processing, the relationship between the brain and the mind, the dynamics of interpersonal influence, and how suggestions become realities. As practicing clinicians, we have a great deal to learn from studying hypnosis whether we ever intend to become "hypnotists" or not. The role of suggestion - influential communication - is so basic to any healing technique that to ignore, avoid, or underestimate its impact in the therapy process weakens our ability to practice therapy effectively.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe the use of hypnosis to increase client responsiveness and enhance treatment efficacy.
  2. To describe how to use hypnosis to target specific cognitive distortions.
