Phase Ivteach Selfhypnosis

Generally, once the evaluative and educational phases are complete, and hypnotiz-ability has been assessed, the clinician is ready to teach the client self-hypnosis. This is phase IV of the preparation process. A principle for success is to separate the teaching of hypnosis from the presenting problem. For example, the client who presents with a headache should not receive a first intervention for symptom relief until basic hypnotic principles have been taught. Otherwise, the clinician risks the client viewing hypnosis as a failure, should the headache not be relieved. In addition, because hypnosis is considered a skill, it is subject to improvement with practice. Clients can be instructed to practice self-hypnosis, thereby increasing their skills while simultaneously validating their altered state, thus increasing positive expectancies.
