It is commonly known that some individuals are more easily hypnotized than others. What is less clear is why, and what can be learnt from these individual differences for hypnosis as a whole. The Highly Hypnotizable Person is the first book to present an up-to-date, comprehensive overview of what research and evidence there is for the existence and features of highly hypnotisable people. The Highly Hypnotizable Person draws on research findings from cognitive, developmental and clinical psychology and from neuropsychology and neurophysiology. Leading authorities on hypnosis provide a comprehensive account of what is known and understood about this phenomenon and treatment procedure, and in particular, the nature and implications of high susceptibility.

"This book is a delight to read and will keep seasoned psychoanalysts and novice psychotherapists stimulated, informed, and satisfied. In ten eminently clear and readable chapters, the authors demonstrate their thorough grounding in classical as well as contemporary psychoanalytic theories as they present the fundamentals of hypnotic technique and the uses of psychoanalysis in hypno-analytic clinical work. This is a thoughtful and very appropriate contribution for our age of time-limited therapy and the battle over 'false memory.'" -- Hedda Bolgar, Ph.D.

ìBrief Cognitive Hypnosis gives a unique and refreshing presentation of various applications of hypnosis in clinical practice. Most importantly this book focuses on brief clinical interventions which are both effacacious and cost effective. The authors clearly describe a number of techniques for correcting dysfunctional behaviors such as irritating and/or self-destructive habits, ameliorating anxiety disorders, treating pain, and managing troublesome side effects of various medical treatments and procedures. I highly recommend this book as a valuable resource for all clinicians who are faced with helping their patients deal with such problems.î - Edward J.

Corydon Hammond, PhD, ABPH Past President of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis Professor University of Utah School of Medicine ì...Zarren and Eimer integrate traditional psychodynamic models of the unconscious and symptom-formation with modern cognitive theory, the outcome of which is a new model for the change process in therapy. With lucid description of their clinical methods and rich case illustrations the authors show how the hypnotic trance, along with careful attention to the wording of the hypnotic scripts, enable the patient to open to the possibility of genuine change.î - Daniel Brown, PhD, ABPH Professor, Harvard Medical School and Simmons School of Social Work, Boston, Massachusetts
