Preface
The editors of this volume, the International Handbook of Clinical Hypnosis, first met to discuss the idea
for it during the 13th International Congress of Hypnosis held in Melbourne, Australia, in 1994. During the
Congress, sponsored on behalf of the International Society of Hypnosis by the Australian Society of
Hypnosis and the Department of Psychiatry of the University of Melbourne, the presidency of the
International Society of Hypnosis was passed from Graham D. Burrows AO to Peter B. Bloom, while
Robb O. Stanley continued as secretary treasurer.
From that vantage point and following the publication of Contemporary Interna- tional Hypnosis, the
proceedings of the 13th Congress, we realized the need for a handbook authored by senior clinicians and
researchers, who could present topics in greater length and depth that would substantially contribute to
the field of hypnosis and its applications.
We hope that interested readers from many and varied disciplines who seek more definitive knowledge
on how clinical hypnosis is used in a variety of medical, dental and psychological conditions will benefit
from reading this volume. We also hope that health care professionals from many disciplines, whether
they are experienced or inexperienced with the principles of clinical hypnosis, will find ways to better
serve their patients or clients in the future.
The editors wish to thank our colleagues for their contributions to this handbook. Our contributors are
experts in their fields and come with broad experience in medicine, dentistry, and psychology. Most are
professors at major universities, some are chairman of their departments, and all are members of the
leading hypnosis societies in their own countries. These societies, of which most of our authors have
served as president, promote clinical training and research in the understanding of this immensely useful
modality in the healing arts.
We sincerely thank Mrs Gertrude Rubinstein for her excellent editorial assis- tance; and we are grateful
to our publisher, John Wiley & Sons, who has consistently helped us to shape these endeavors to the
benefit of us all.
