Hypnosis Network Tip: With clinical hypnosis, the therapist can make suggestions designed to help the client formulate specific feelings, memories, images, etc. that will lead to curative results. When used as part of a psychotherapeutic program, hypnotic suggestions can influence behavior in three ways. When the listener is relaxed and open to the suggestions, experiences sensory representations of the suggestions, and is able to envision these suggestions will result in future outcomes, hypnosis can be very effective. Creating "hypnotic language patterns" -- in other words, what is said during a session -- are at the core of these three criteria. Hypnotic language patterns include guided visualization, repetition, and cause-effect scenarios. Hypnosis can also be practiced on one's own with hypnosis CDs.
