Anyone can be hypnotized. But not everyone experiences the state that they want. We’ll look at concrete methods, including direct and inferential suggestion, of working with subjects who seem lowly or non-responsive to traditional inductions to achieve a hypnotic state. We’ll also cover some issues or characteristics that may make hypnosis more difficult. This class is not a challenge and we cannot promise to hypnotize everyone, but we can give useful insights on how to be most effective with subjects who have a hard time achieving a traditional state.
