FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
In 1958 the American Medical Association (AMA)
accepted Clinical Hypnosis as an adjunct to standard medical care. The AMA
recommended that hypnosis instruction be included in the curricula of
medical schools and in post graduate training centers. In 1961 the
AMA recommended a minimum of 108 hours of training in hypnotherapy for
students physicians and medical doctors. Still hypnosis is one of the most
misunderstood adjuncts to standard medical care. According to s survey
published in 1996 issue of the American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis the
majority or 79% of the interviewed physicians and 67% of residents had no
prior training in hypnosis and even fewer experienced clinical hypnosis.
The good news is that 85% of these practitioners experienced an interest
in hypnosis education.
Understandably, if your physician or therapist does not
mention hypnosis as an adjunct to your medical care, it is because he or she may
lack sufficient knowledge or training in this specialized field. In
addition hypnotherapy sessions and individualized instruction for the
patient in self hypnosis takes time and perhaps prohibit your physician from incorporating
hypnosis in the overall treatment of your condition. Your
physician has the discretion to refer you to a Clinical Hypnotherapist and you the
patient have the right to ask your physician to refer you to a Hypnotherapist.
