A randomized clinical study was conducted to evaluate the effects on anxiety, depression, stress and optimism levels of an audio-recorded clinical hypnosis intervention and a music session and compare them with a control group in women scheduled for breast biopsy. We analyzed the data of 170 patients with an average age of 47 years, who were randomly assigned to each of the groups. The psychosocial variables were measured in three moments: baseline, which corresponds to the period before the intervention with hypnosis, music or waiting in the room before biopsy; a second measurement after the interventions and a third measurement after the breast biopsy procedure was finished...

After a brief review of the history of the idea of an activity-increasing hypnotic induction procedure with eyes open and pedaling a bicycle ergometer, the features of active-alert hypnotic induction are summarized. Results of research conducted on healthy volunteers revealed the behavioral, experiential, physiological, and interactional characteristics of the induced altered state of consciousness (ASC), showing both similarities and differences between traditional and active-alert hypnosis. A short description of the application of the method is followed by two brief case studies...

REVIEW
M Elena Mendoza, Antonio Capafons
The goal of this article is to provide a comprehensive review of the historical background, methods, and clinical applications of the Valencia Model of Waking Hypnosis (VMWH). The active-alert-waking methods have been developed and used since the 19th century as an alternative when the suggestions for relaxation and drowsiness were not helpful for specific cases, or when the person needed to use hypnotic suggestions in situations that required them to be alert and with their eyes open (i.e. in vivo exposure, sports performance, academic work, etc...

Bruce Eads, David M Wark
Alert hypnosis has a growing body of evidence to support its use in resolving trauma symptoms. There is also research to support the use of tai chi in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Integrating alert hypnosis with tai chi movements offers the potential to further the benefits of both approaches. Patients have an opportunity to work toward their desired goals using hypnotic techniques to embody targeted changes both in session and outside the office. Providers get behavioral information about the physical and emotional states in the patient...

REVIEW
Lars-Eric Unestahl
Sport hypnosis (SH) is a form of alert hypnosis defined by mental training procedures based on three techniques in combination: eyes-open hypnosis, traditional eyes-closed hypnosis, and self-hypnosis. The self-hypnotic state is operationally defined as the imagined "inner mental room" (IMR). The main purpose of SH is to produce the sport hypnotic state (SHS), or the flow state, a form of alert hypnosis. Another purpose of SHS is also to allow a user to initiate and release specific posthypnotic effects...

Clinical hypnosis for improving learning has been advocated by scholars dating back to the late 19th century. Empirical research seeking to validate its use has been supported particularly for real life applications, though less so in laboratory memory experiments. Suggestions for the use of waking/alert hypnosis suggestion for both highly suggestible students who experience more advanced and compelling phenomena associated with hypnosis, and students in general are offered. Suggestions for future research are also provided...

Dan Short
This article provides an overview of conversational hypnosis (CH) as distinct from traditional forms. The article includes a history of Ericksonian hypnosis followed by a conceptual model and operational definitions for CH. The analysis is built on three levels of comparison and contrast. Three concepts commonly used in the general hypnosis literature-focusing, engaging, and inciting-structure a comprehensive definition of CH. The article concludes with recommendations for future research.

Conversational hypnosis has been promoted as both more congruent with mechanisms of psychobiological change and more feasibly integrated into clinical care than the more dominant, ritualistic, hierarchical, induction-based Standards of Training in Clinical Hypnosis. Further, it has been argued that, in teaching the legacy standard, clinical hypnosis training lacks pedagogical integrity. This article builds on these premises by piloting a mixed-methods approach to studying the pedagogy and participant evaluations of two professional education events that focused on conversational hypnosis...

REVIEW

While much has been made of the value of Buddhist mindfulness in clinical treatment, little attention has been given over to its parallels, if not antecedents in Hindu philosophy. Buddhist traditions in the vipassana, ch'an and zen tradition, and the practices associated, find their roots in Advaita philosophy and practice. This article looks at the useful/effective nature of Advaita and its specific application in clinical hypnosis. The linkage between traditional wisdom sources, psychological investigations of the self and contemporary hypnosis is articulated in the article which follows, and a case example, regarding clinical application, is provided...

The combination of mindfulness and self-hypnosis could provide a tool that is easily implemented by individuals who want to care for their well-being in times of high stress. Each discipline has been shown to be effective in relieving stress, and integration could further facilitate change while creating a tool that is highly accessible. There are many similarities between the two practices, such as focusing of attention and the emphasis on mind-body connection. However, important distinctions in psychological (e...

Individuals suffering from generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) experience a broad range of physical, emotional, and cognitive distress. A hallmark of GAD is anxiety around making decisions. Many clinicians notice improvements in patients through specific modalities, such as mindfulness, hypnosis, and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT); however, these individual methods sometimes fall short. Clinicians and researchers alike note that it can be more effective to combine these three methods into an integrative treatment protocol...

REVIEW
Philip D Shenefelt
Mindfulness-based cognitive hypnotherapy integrates mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and hypnotherapy to improve physical, emotional, mental, and/or spiritual aspects of skin disorders. Meditation, including mindfulness meditation, and hypnosis both utilize trance phenomena to help produce focalization and specific improvements in skin disorders through psycho-neuro-endocrine-immunologic mechanisms. Hypnosis, cognitive hypnotherapy, focused meditation, and mindfulness meditation are discussed with respect to improving various skin disorders including acne, acne excoriée, alopecia areata, atopic dermatitis, congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma, dyshidrotic dermatitis, erythema nodosum, erythromelalgia, furuncles, glossodynia, herpes simplex, hyperhidrosis, ichthyosis vulgaris, lichen planus, neurodermatitis, nummular dermatitis, postherpetic neuralgia, prurigo nodularis, pruritus, psoriasis, rosacea, trichotillomania, urticaria, verruca vulgaris, and vitiligo...

Mindfulness-based interventions and hypnosis are efficacious treatments for addressing a large number of psychological and physical conditions, including chronic pain. However, there continues to be debate surrounding the relative uniqueness of the theorized mechanisms of these treatments-reflected by measures of mindfulness facets and hypnotizability-with some concern that there may be so much overlap as to make the mechanism constructs (and, therefore, the respective interventions) redundant. Given these considerations, the primary aim of the current study was to examine the degree of unique versus shared variance between two common measures of mindfulness facets and hypnotizability: the Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire and the Stanford Hypnotic Clinical Scale...
