Hi All,
In a recent class several of my students posed the question: "Is it ethical to NOT tell your patient (client), that you are using hypnotism"? We were discussing the usage of "relaxation" patter to urge the client into hypnosis. Many physicians and dentists use this technique without ever mentioning the word "hypnosis", as it sometimes has a negative connotation. The main concern was in this era of informed consent should we be so forthcoming?
My reply was that we use suggestive technique constantly in our dealings with people, to use suggestive technique without the word hypnosis is prudent at times. Let's get some feedback and discussion on how folks see this!

Good Hypnotism,
Ed

Hi Ed,
I agree with all you say, however, as one who has a determination of sort to change the response to the word hypnosis, I use it always. My intention is to do as much as possible to have the general public understand the truth of what hypnosis is as much as they have been misled as to what it isn't.

That said, it is not unethical at all to tell people "today we will be using guided imagery techniques, relaxation techniques, the power of positive thinking, etc., to make changes in your behavior that you desire. Heck, the rest of the world is doing exactly that. Sports psychology and guided imagery is self hypnosis..... and the list goes on.

My best,
Tom Nicoli
