This workshop will review the neurobiology of pain processing, affect and hypnosis. Neuro- imaging studies will be reviewed elucidating individual differences in pain sensitivity and identifying distinct areas of the brain differentially activated depending upon the nature of hypnotic suggestions. A hypnotic approach that develops a dissociation between sensory and affective components of pain through the accessing of prior positive emotional experience will be demonstrated.
