Hypnosis and Stress provides a practical approach to using hypnosis with patients suffering from a wide range of stress related problems. Innovative in its approach, this book integrates traditional approaches in hypnosis with Ericksonian and Rossi's approach to hypnotherapy. The most up-to-date research is discussed and a flexible, 'hands-on' framework is provided for practicing hypnotherapy, including:* detailed guidelines on conducting clinical interviews* examples of preparing the patient for hypnosis* templates of clinical 'scripts' for use in sessions* solutions for dealing with catharsis* discussion of inter-professional collaboration. Interventions are suggested for a wide range of stress problems in both adults and children, including anxiety, sexual dysfunctions, sleeping problems, pain and other psychosomatic conditions. This practical guide provides a useful introduction to hypnotherapy for professionals such as counsellors, psychotherapists, psychiatrists, psychologists and physicians. The breadth of information included ensures it will also appeal to the more experienced clinician.
Dr. Peter Hawkins is Visiting Professor in Psychotherapy at the University Institute of Maia (ISMAI) in Portugal.
