Abstract

Post-traumatic stress (PTS) at a chronic level complicated by the presence of chronic grief resulting from the trauma presents a challenge to any clinical interventions. As an integral part of cognitive-behaviour therapy (CBT) for treating chronic PTS and grief, hypnosis could be utilised as a vehicle for the treatment delivery and enhancement of treatment efficacy due to its unique therapeutic phenomena. The following case study therefore addresses the application and effectiveness of hypnosis in combination of CBT for the treatment of chronic PTS and grief.
