    Abstract

    A research team from Macquarie University has devised a weight control programme using hypnosis as an adjunct to counselling. The preliminary report outlines the aims of the programme and the techniques to be employed. The innovative aspect of this research is the use of video-equipment to reinforce visual imagery of the desired goal of a more slender physique. Eighteen anthropometric measures are recorded for follow-up analysis. A diet prepared by the Health Commission of New South Wales is used and behaviour modification techniques, known to be successful in other weight reduction programmes, are included in the hypnotic-counselling sessions.
