Editors: Katalin Varga (Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, Hungary)
Book Description:
This book provides a guide for health professionals concerned about communicating more effectively with patients as well as their families and colleagues. People in many life situations, either waiting for a diagnosis, during delivering a child, being hospitalized due to some life threatening medical condition, are almost always highly susceptible to suggestions. These people seem like as if they were hypnotized without any formal hypnosis. The very same suggestive techniques can be applied to them that are used in hypnosis, utilizing their highly susceptible state. This new book demonstrates the power of our words and to improve the readers’ skills in minimizing harmful effects and maximizing beneficial effects of communication with people in medical settings.
