"The human psyche is the most mysterious reality known to us. Perhaps it is the most unique phenomenon in the universe. Hidden behind all the everydayness of neurotic problems and therapeutic frustrations is the central mystery of existence and meaning."

A Jungian Perspective

by James A. Hall, MD

This course meets the qualifications for 7 hours of continuing education

Hypnosis: A Jungian Perspective
This innovative work integrates modern hypnotherapy with Jung's analytic psychology, successfully linking the skilled practice of hypnosis with the Jungian vision of the human psyche. As developed by Hall, the Jungian conceptualization of hypnosis draws on the theory of psychological complexes and their participation in the sense of self-image that inevitably is a part of the ego. Hall's succinct yet thorough review of the Jungian model of psychological functioning conveys the essence of Jung's view of the psyche while elucidating its suitability as a basic framework for hypnotherapy.

For the practicing Jungian analyst, Hypnosis: A Jungian Perspective encourages beneficial cross-fertilization between traditional analysis and hypnotherapy. For the therapist involved with hypnotherapy but unacquainted with Jung, this landmark volume promotes the judicious clinical application of basic Jungian principles.

"A pioneering effort in both clinical hypnosis and Jungian analysis, written by an authority highly respected in both areas."

"Readable, enjoyable, and very informative. This book is a lucid introduction to both Jungian ideas and hypnotherapy."
-Donald W. Schafer, MD

"All hypnosis is in essence self-hypnosis. What the therapist can do is to facilitate the patient's own ability to  enter altered states of consciousness and then guide the patient toward psychodynamically useful experiences."
