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.
Examined in particular are Jung's view of the reality of the psyche, Jungian dream interpretation, and the technique of active imagination. Hall clearly shows how the Jungian understanding of dreams is the basis for an understanding of active imagination, and how active imagination, in turn, serves as the foundation for other imaginal techniques. In this theory, then, hypnosis comes to represent a specialized use of the imaginal ability of the mind.
The book's detailed review of the clinical applications of hypnotherapy within a Jungian model focuses primarily on the two basic types of hypnotic intervention: (1) those that produce artificial complexes in order to modify and counterbalance pathological complexes; and (2) those that help to ``dissolve'' complexes from the past that are interfering with current growth and individuation. Other clinically oriented discussions address critical issues concerning transference and countertransference, which may be abruptly manifested during hypnotherapy. In addition to the author's ``suggestions on suggestion,'' there are illuminating case examples and an annotated induction protocol that demonstrate the practical application of the principles described.
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.
