It is important to respectfully facilitate a patient's naturalistic elicitation of hypnosis through a rhythmic, absorbing process. This workshop presents "truisms," suggestions, and the "yes set" as just such a way to elicit hypnosis for a variety of applications.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To list five truisms.
  2. To cite three ways in which a patient's attention can be absorbed.
