Hypnotic interventions can offer a cognitive shift toward tolerating uncertainty, positive expectancy, and a framework for taking action essential to helping the anxious person recover. Hypnosis is an opportunity to introduce and solidify these elements of active treatment.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe the importance of action versus avoidance in the treatment of anxiety disorders.
  2. Create a metaphor that suggests to the anxious client the need for action and practice.
  3. Create a post-hypnotic suggestion that supports the tolerance of uncertainty when feeling fearful or anxious.
