Practising Safe Hypnosis: A Risk Management Guide
By Roger Hambleton
This volume explores the damage that can be caused by the incorrect induction of a hypnotic trance and associated procedures in laboratory, therapeutic and stage performance settings.
The laws of assault and negligence are used to assess the hypnotist's criminal and personal injury liability in the English, American and Australian courts.
In addition, the reader will find commentary on:
- the history of hypnosis;
- induction scripts for the use in conjunction with best practice;
- theoretical comparisons and discussion on the nature of hypnosis, including the controversial debate surrounding hypnosis as an altered state of consciousness
