Ways of Introducing Clinical Hypnosis to Hospital Staffs

  • Frank K. Schmidt

Zusammenfassung

Auf der Grundlage neuerer statistischer Daten wird die Bedeutung der Kurzpsychotherapie, der Hypnose und des AT im heutigen Gesundheitswesen hervorgehoben. Gleichzeitig unterstreicht der Autor die Notwendigkeit einer möglichst vorsichtigen und sensitiven Darstellungsweise der Hypnose gegenüber dem medizinischen Personal, um Ablehnung zu vermeiden.

Der Nutzen, den Patienten vor ihrer Entlassung aus dem Krankenhaus und danach aus einer Kurzpsychotherapie und/oder der Hypnose ziehen können, wird beschrieben.

Summary

On the basis of recent statistical data, the importance of brief psychotherapy, hypnosis, and autogenic training in today's medical services is stressed. At the same time, the author underlines the need for a rather cautious and sensitive presentation of hypnosis to hospital staffs in order to avoid aversive reactions.

The benefits patients may draw from brief psychotherapy and/or hypnosis both prior to and after their discharge from hospital are described.
