Hammond DC., Expert Review of Neurotherapeutics. 2010;10(2):263-273. doi:10.1586/ern.09.140

Hypnotherapy for Mental Health Disorders

A Meta-Analysis for the Efficacy of Hypnotherapy in Alleviating PTSD Symptoms.

Rotaru TȘ, Rusu A., Int J Clin Exp Hypn. 2016;64(1):116-136. doi:10.1080/00207144.2015.1099406

Hypnosis in the Treatment of Phobias: A Review of the Literature.

Thomas P. McGuinness Ph.D. (1984), American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis, 26:4, 261-272, DOI: 10.1080/00029157.1984.10402574
Key finding
The literature on the use of hypnosis in the treatment of phobias was reviewed. Case reports and controlled studies indicated mixed results, which were discussed in terms of methodological considerations, the overlap between hypnotherapy and behavior therapy, and hypnotic susceptibility and phobic behavior. It was concluded that hypnosis is an effective and efficient adjunct in the treatment of phobias.

Hypnosis and desensitization for phobias: A controlled prospective trial.

Marks, I. M., Gelder, M. G., & Edwards, G. (1968)., The British Journal of Psychiatry, 114(515), 1263–1274.
