Contrary to the popular mythology about hypnosis, clinical hypnosis enhances personal mastery by promoting greater self-awareness, increasing access to personal resources, and amplifying of a sense of personal agency in actively choosing growth-oriented responses. How hypnosis can help empower people will be highlighted in this clinical demonstration.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Demonstrate how hypnosis can highlight specific resources relevant to self-help strategies.
  2. Illustrate how metaphors can be applied in hypnosis as a vehicle of stimulating therapeutic associations.
