The Oxford Handbook of Hypnosis is the successor to Fromm and Nash's Contemporary Hypnosis Research (Guilford Press), which has long been regarded as the field's authoritative scholarly reference for practitioners and researchers alike. With 31 original chapters this new expanded book is a comprehensive treatment of where the field has been, where it stands today, and its future directions. The world's leading scholars masterfully track the latest developments in theory and research. These chapters are thoughtful, lucid, and provocative. Clinical chapters then comprehensively describe how hypnosis is best used with patients across a broad spectrum of disorders and applied settings. Authored by internationally renowned practitioners these contributions are richly illustrated with case examples and session transcripts. Unparalleled in breadth and quality, this book is the definitive reference for students, researchers, clinicians, and anyone wanting to understand the science and practice of hypnosis. The only reference you'll need for years to come.
