Erickson commented that, for most clinical work, a light to medium trance is sufficient. But there are instances when it is helpful to elicit deep trance phenomena, such as hypnotic amnesia, immobility, analgesia, dissociation, and positive hallucinations. The elicitation of these abilities will be demonstrated as well as utilization of failure to produce certain deep trance phenomena.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe how to elicit deep trance phenomena.
  2. Explain how to use resistance to the client's advantage.
