Metaphorical: When we imagine a baby closing it's eyes, we feel calm and comfortable knowing that every breath allows the baby to go deeper and deeper into relaxation A summary of all of the content includes: Misconceptions of hypnosis - people assume that being hypnotized means being 'weak-minded', or hypnosis means going to sleep.
Contexts of hypnosis - when is hypnosis generally used, whether on stage, in a clinic, at the hospital, in the battlefield, etc Human suggestibility - there is no correlation between suggestibility and any other quality within people.

Almost like meditation, but with a desired goal Therapeutic utilization of hypnosis - what are the conditions that can be treated with hypnosis Sample trance scripts - some very interesting scripts, with different styles of communication Ethical guidelines - what to do, and what not to do, especially from a legal stand point you cannot treat someone if you don't have a license and much more.
