The quote Lindsay shared from Clark L Hull was from ‘Hypnosis and Suggestibilty, An Experimental Approach’:
Chapter 12 Page 334 – Hypnosis Regarded as a Habit
“Clearly, Hypnotic susceptibility is greatly facilitated by practice. It is a remarkable and an interesting commentary on the tardy scientific development of hypnotism, that this striking and well know phenomenon aroused the experimental curiosity of no-one for at least 100 years”
Another great episode and great to hear Lindsay’s voice again. I couldn’t quite hear what she said about habit reversal that really worked. It sounded like trickle – something? It would be interesting to know.
I’ll see if I can direct Lindsay here to answer to your query Richard – and thanks for the continued support and feedback, very much appreciated!
Best wishes, Adam.
Good to hear from you, thank you for listening and your lovely comments. Habit Reversal is one of my favourite techniques. I refered to Trichotillomania, or Tric for short – it’s a long word! It’s hair pulling, some people pull out the hair on their head, others eyelashes or eyebrows, some do all of that. I use HR for many unwanted habits with good success. With Tric, it’s by far the most successful.
My best wishes
Thanks for that clarification Lindsay.
Very best wishes to you, Adam.
Thanks Adam and Lindsay. I had got the wrong end of the stick. I thought the ‘trickle’word was a technique that Lindsay had used to facilitate habit reversal! Pulling out a client’s eyebrows to stop them smoking might be an interesting, if very short, career!
I have just finished listening to the discussion about working with obesity. Really good stuff. I would certainly be interested in a day workshop, and I suspect many others would be too. Thanks, Richard
