Hypnosis: The elusive rapprochement between theory and practice

, : Hypnosis: The elusive rapprochement between theory and practice. Australian Journal of Clinical & Experimental Hypnosis 25(2): 95-107, Nov

Theory and practice should be closely interlinked, with each informing and supporting the other. There has been a tradition of such links in the hypnosis world, which it has been argued has helped raise the status of hypnosis to that of a mainstream therapy. Nonetheless, on close inspection, our current understandings of theory are not developed well enough to offer sufficiently clear guidelines about clinical practice. Data show that hypnosis has demonstrable clinical efficacy, but the newcomer to the field, filled with expectancies derived from training in the scientist-practitioner mould, will still be dissatisfied with our capacity to explain what hypnosis is or why it works.
