In discussing their clinical use of hypnosis for depression, Crasilneck & Hall (1985) state that 'our approach is to increase the patient's ego strength and to enhance his ability to deal with the problems leading to depression' (p. 324). Sachs (1992) describes the use of ego-strengthening achieved by hypnotically enhanced mental imagery, in conjunction with progressive relaxation in the management of cancer patients. McBrien's (1990) depression prevention programme utilizes self-hypnosis to produce an increased confidence in managing and reducing depressed feelings. Hypnosis is also used to increase the ability to experience positive thoughts and feelings that lead to an increase in pleasant events.
