Show synopsis Most of the variables suggestive of hypnotic responsiveness in the adult have their precursors in the creative, affective, and play experiences of youngsters. This remarkable book explores the fascinating gifts of imagery and natural trance that seem almost organic to childhood ? and their immense therapeutic potential.

Among the topics covered are hypnotic strategies for different developmental stages; treatment for a variety of habit disorders; treatment of childhood traumas, motor and vocal tics, somatoform disorders, and learning disorders; and the use of hypnosis for the management of chronic nausea and vomiting and acute and chronic pain.
