Reviews the book, Essentials of Clinical Hypnosis: An Evidence-Based Approach by Steven Jay Lynn and Irving Kirsch (see record 2005-13464-000). Steven Jay Lynn and Irving Kirsch are two of the most prolific and best-regarded hypnosis researchers in the world, besides working as clinicians, so they can discuss authoritatively both the empirical support for different hypnotic interventions and provide verbatim hypnotic scripts and discussion of practical clinical considerations. Both authors endorse a psychosocial approach to hypnosis theory and research and prefer cognitive-behavioral interventions. To their merit, however, they have also integrated into their text some verbalizations and concepts (e.g., utilization) based mostly on the clinical work of Milton Erickson (see Yapko, 2003) and, although they do not cover it in depth, refer approvingly to psychodynamic approaches to hypnosis. The book provides a comprehensive and empirically supported introduction to the clinical use of hypnosis, which various meta-analyses have shown to powerfully enhance both psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral psychotherapies.
