"During the past several years there have been ever-increasing numbers of physicians, dentists, and psychologists interested in hypnosis, both therapeutic and investigative. Reliable sources of clinical information and instruction were practically non-existent except for a few scattered individuals. To meet this need, to interest universities, and to stimulate medical and dental schools to an awareness of the importance of teaching clinical hypnosis, a group of experienced clinicians competent in teaching were formed. Throughout the United States, under the auspices of various professional societies and universities, this group conducted seminars on hypnosis. "This book is compiled from the tape recordings of dozens of those seminars, and thus it contains the material as it was presented, with all the simplicity, directness, and effectiveness of the classroom presentation. "It is no more, no less, than a comprehensive presentation of the material upon which thousands of clinicians throughout the United States have based the initiation and development of their successful clinical use of hypnosis." -Milton H. Erickson, M.D. (1961)

Behavioral Dentistry, Second Edition, surveys the vast and absorbing topic of the role of behavioral science in the study and clinical practice of dentistry. An understanding of social sciences has long been a central part of dental education, and essential for developing a clinician’s appreciation of human behavior as it affects efficient dental treatment. This book gathers together contributions from leading experts in each of the major subspecialties of behavioral dentistry. Its aim is not merely to provide the student and clinician with a comprehensive review of the impressive literature or discussion of the theoretical background to the subject, but also with a practical guide to adapting the latest techniques and protocols and applying them to day-to-day clinical practice. This second edition of Behavioral Dentistry discusses biobehavioral processes, including the psychobiology of inflammation and pain, oral health and quality of life, saliva health, and hypnosis in dentistry. The book goes on to examine anxiety, fear, and dental and chronic orofacial pain, and then reviews techniques for designing and managing behavior change. It concludes with a section on professional practice, including care of special needs, geriatric, and diabetic patients, and interpersonal communication in dental education.

"Brief Cognitive Hypnosis gives a unique and refreshing presentation of various applications of hypnosis in clinical practice. Most importantly this book focuses on brief clinical interventions which are both effacacious and cost effective. The authors clearly describe a number of techniques for correcting dysfunctional behaviors such as irritating and/or self-destructive habits, ameliorating anxiety disorders, treating pain, and managing troublesome side effects of various medical treatments and procedures. I highly recommend this book as a valuable resource for all clinicians who are faced with helping their patients deal with such problems." - Edward J. Frischholz, PhD, Fellow and Past-President Divison 30 (Society for Psychological Hypnosis) American Psychological Association Past-Editor, American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis Fellow and Approved Consultant, American Society of Clinical Hypnosis "I wish I had said that. This book is clear, accurate, and explicated in a way that is indisputably better than any other texts on clinical hypnosis that I've read." - Dabney M. Ewin, MD, ABMH Past President of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis Board Certified Diplomate of the American Board of Medical Hypnosis "[This book] is a magical addition to the field of Clinical Hypnosis. Two distinguished Board Certified Clinicians with over sixty years of combined clinical experience have provided a delightful book that will not only add to the experienced clinicians' skills, but provide a straightforward and practical approach for the neophyte in hypnosis." - William C. Wester, EdD, ABPP, ABPH Past President of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis "This is a valuable book for clinicians. It is highly practical, 'user friendly', and explicates rapid treatment methods for the range of problems most commonly seen in our offices. I definitely recommend it." - D. Corydon Hammond, PhD, ABPH Past President of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis Professor University of Utah School of Medicine "...Zarren and Eimer integrate traditional psychodynamic models of the unconscious and symptom-formation with modern cognitive theory, the outcome of which is a new model for the change process in therapy. With lucid description of their clinical methods and rich case illustrations the authors show how the hypnotic trance, along with careful attention to the wording of the hypnotic scripts, enable the patient to open to the possibility of genuine change." - Daniel Brown, PhD, ABPH Professor, Harvard Medical School and Simmons School of Social Work, Boston, Massachusetts

This book is a comprehensive guide to pediatric dental fear/anxiety (DFA) and phobia that will provide practitioners with a full understanding of the etiology, prevalence, assessment, and management of these conditions. The coping styles of children when under stress are explored, with discussion of their relevance to the assessment visit and treatment allocation. Practical treatment techniques are comprehensively covered, from non-pharmacological behavioral strategies relevant for children with no or mild DFA to those approaches more appropriate for children with severe DFA/phobia. The importance of the use of language and communication skills to build rapport and allay anxiety is explored. Relaxation and hypnosis techniques are described, with guidance on how to introduce these to patients and their parents/carers. Techniques that help children cope when receiving injections are detailed, including systematic needle desensitization; these provide practitioners with options to help resolve DFA and phobia regarding needles. Intravenous sedation, including the challenge of cannulation, is covered comprehensively. Furthermore, cognitive behavioral therapy is presented, with suggestion of practical self-help material when appropriate. The closing chapter looks to the future, discussing the barriers to and the changes required for the creation of more child-centered DFA services.
