COLIN: When we first did the show at the Edinburgh Fringe, we were getting a lot of performers (as volunteers). But I'm wondering: were they good improvisers to begin with? Or has this hypnosis actually made them better, got them out of their heads, not playing to the audience? They actually just worked with the improvisers and make a scene. I really should have got some grant money and looked into it.
SB 281 would have prevented anyone who underwent police hypnosis from testifying about that hypnosis in criminal court. It also would have made statements during or after a hypnosis session inadmissible, McGaughy says, which is why Abbott vetoed it.
Police hypnosis can have serious effects. Death row inmate Charles Don Flores has been appealing his accomplice to murder conviction for decades after a hypnotized woman identified him for the first time after seeing him in court. The bill could bolster his argument that his case should be reconsidered. If not, Flores is scheduled to be executed as soon as the end of this year.
The Stop Compulsive Shopping hypnotherapy tape developed by Bayside Psychotherapy in Australia is an evocative 25 minute MP3 that encourages reflection on the almost absurd lengths to which one might go in order to continue shopping compulsively. The Shopping Addiction and Stop Impulse Buying hypnotherapy tapes created by hypnosis experts at hypnosisdownloads.com promote understanding of the emotions that fuel overshopping and how to productively redirect that emotional energy. Both of these tapes, each in a different way, helps the listener become more attuned to the psychological aspects of his or her compulsive buying behavior and provides yet another tool for creating that all important space between impulse and action, the place where real, lasting change can occur.
Oooh. I like the idea of different planes or realties, Joe. That opens up fascinating story threads and implications. I also can see exactly what you mean about the crack and spaceman suit; with Julian so focused on holding onto his agnostic reality, it makes sense that he would try to contain the trauma and the supernatural elements within the spaceman suit. I like the idea of that metaphor.
Lt. Col. Samuel P. Mowery, commanding officer of Headquarters and Headquarters Squadron, cracks up with the rest of his Marines during a hypnotist show and safety stand down at the Cherry Point theater, May 24. The show reinforced the Marine Corps' don't drink and drive message among the Marines.
To ensure that it is done properly, the treatment is only allowed to be offered by licensed psychologists who have undergone special training that takes several weeks to complete. This therapy is different from other types of hypnosis-based sessions that are frequently advertised on commercials by unlicensed professionals.
A 2012 article in the American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis, Maximizing the Usefulness of Hypnosis in Forensic Investigative Settings, provided a guide for using hypnosis in forensic investigative settings.
If you are interested in learning more about how this Association recommends leveraging hypnosis, its stated purpose is: For mental health professionals interested in using investigative hypnosis with law enforcement agencies in the effort to enhance the memory of witnesses and victims. Discussion focuses on how to work with law enforcement agencies so as to control for factors that can interfere with recall. Specifics include what police need to know about how to conduct case review, to prepare interviewees, to conduct interviews, and what to do with the results.
Texas is the only state in the nation that provides a certification program for their law enforcement officers to learn hypnosis through the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE). After earning their certification from the 40-hour course, police hypnotists are also required to complete hypnosis training every 24 months in order to maintain their good standing. Over years of allowing for investigative hypnosis in Texas, the state developed some procedural safeguards known as "Zani factors". Zani factors are named after the 1988 case, Zani v. State, where a Texas Court of Appeals admitted the hypnotically elicited testimony of an eyewitness. The case established that proponents of "hypnotically-refreshed testimony" must establish that hypnosis is a scientifically accepted method to refresh someone's memory and show by "clear and convincing evidence" that the testimony provided in court is trustworthy.
SB 281 defined "investigative hypnosis" means a technique that uses hypnosis to explore the memory of a witness to enhance the witness's recall of a legally relevant event, including descriptions of people, conversations, and the environment. The bill would have prevented anyone who underwent police hypnosis from testifying about that hypnosis in criminal court while also making statements during or after a hypnosis session inadmissible, if Governor Greg Abbott hadn't vetoed it.
I could not find a lot of information online about how other states address investigative hypnosis. I did find a 2012 study which stated about half the states in the nation refuse to admit evidence obtained through hypnosis.
This was an absolutely fascinating blog to write. I had no idea about investigative hypnosis or junk science before this research. I am not very familiar with the practice of hypnosis, but I do have friends that do hypnosis as a form of therapy and are certified hypnotists. I think there is a place and time for hypnosis, but I am not too sure that place is criminal court. I am interested to see if this bill makes a reappearance next session with some of the "problematic" language addressed.

As a therapeutic technique, hypnosis therapy (also called hypnotherapy) utilizes a form of guided hypnosis or trance-like state of focus. Hypnotherapy is commonly utilized as a means to help individuals achieve a heightened sense of relaxation, which in turn can lead to an individual gaining a greater sense of awareness. Once in this deep state of relaxation, the brain has the ability to deal with obstacles and problems in a more productive, efficient, and effective manner.
The first defining moment in the history of clinical hypnosis occurred in the 18th century in the case of Franz Mesmer, who used a method of suggestion to treat women with neurological deficits. While his methods were strange, ritualistic and controversial, the results were often surprising as many of his patients did recover. It was later concluded his process and success were the result of suggestion. This is where we get the term Mesmerism.
Years later, the use of hypnosis was actually pioneered by surgeons who claimed the use of hypnosis could relieve the pain associated with surgery, and this led to hypnosis being used as a clinical technique in some hospitals. Researchers began to investigate the technique. Hypnosis was also originally used by Sigmund Freud in the treatment of patients, although he later abandoned the practice.
In the 20th century, hypnosis was embroiled in academic debates, with many questioning its legitimacy and its use in entertainment. However, its use as a type of a self-help process became popular via self-hypnosis tapes.
It is easy to understand why someone would be skeptical of hypnotherapy as a real form of treatment. The very concept of hypnosis is commonly misunderstood by laypeople and clinicians alike. Historically, the technique of hypnosis therapy has been depicted publicly as being useful only for entertainment purposes. Skeptics often make it out to be more mystical than scientific. In many cases, people believe it to be a treatment based solely on deception. So is hypnosis and hypnotherapy real?
This is probably one of the most common misconceptions concerning hypnosis. Depictions of hypnosis in movies and on television have popularized the idea that hypnosis is total mind control. While it may be more exciting and thrilling to think of an episode of the Twilight Zone, the reality is not nearly as entertaining as brainwashing the masses for world domination. Hypnosis does not make people do things they would not normally do, or reveal secrets you would not normal share.
As hypnosis became mainstream and commercialized, many began to promote the use of self-hypnosis and other hypnotic-related techniques by claiming that hypnosis is a cure-all, also known as a panacea. However, the truth is not as grandiose as these promotions would have you believe. It is true that hypnosis can assist in the treatment of a wide variety of issues. However, hypnosis is not a cure for anything. It is a form of treatment, and it often works best in combination with other resources and programs of action.
