Hartland's Medical and Dental Hypnosis Summary

Hartland's Medical and Dental Hypnosis by Michael Heap

This book is an extensively revised edition of a highly successful and comprehensive introductory manual for the use of clinical hypnosis in the treatment of medical and psychological problems and disorders. Written with the interests and needs of the doctor or dentist in mind, its practical and clear approach maintains the tradition of high-quality information and usefulness established in previous editions of this book. After exploring the theoretical and historical background to hypnosis, and key techniques and approaches, the book looks at specific clinical situations and problems in which hypnosis may have an impact, and offers specific practical management guidelines including possible scripts. Continues the level of excellence set in previous editions of Hartland Highly practical and accessible in its scope and approach Offers clear guidelines on key hypnosis techniques, plus safety considerations Overviews the psychodynamic, behavioural, cognitive, and humanistic approaches to psychotherapy for the unfamiliar reader Challenges traditional conceptions of hypnosis as a therapeutic medium and offers an eclectic framework based on mainstream cognitive-behavioural approaches Reviews all the main applications of hypnosis in medicine, dentistry and psychiatry and psychology, referring to evidence from clinical research Gives sample scripts which offer the reader a "springboard" to clinical practice Explores ethical issues in clinical practice, possible adverse effects (including the 'recovered memory' controversy), issues concerning lay practitioners and stage hypnosis with reference to the current literature. From the authors: This future edition builds on the traditional aims and scope of the very popular and successful Hartland's Includes more of a discussion of theory and research (clinical and academic) - with more informed summary of theoretical issues and a summary of evidence-based applications of hypnosis. This is important for professionals who wish to apply to their employees or funding bodies for financial assistance to train in hypnosis A more empirical approach, for the clinical application of hypnosis - the models that are used to justify the various uses of hypnosis are based on modern knowledge Eclectic therapeutic approaches - appealing for a wide range of schools but the main theoretical grounding will be "cognitive-behavioural" Easier to use - new structure of the topics and applications Anxiety, sleep, smoking, weight-loss, psychosomatic complaints, pain - applications for hypnosis for these conditions are presented in depth Hypnosis for areas which require highly specialist knowledge, training and experience - post-traumatic stress disorder, anorexia and bulimia nervosa, sexual abuse, severe personality disorder and others - is dealt with in summaries, giving extra references for the specialist reader Still an essential introductory text!
