About the book

Hypnosis can be a powerful and effective therapeutic technique for a wide range of conditions, including pain, anxiety and mood disorders, in which clinicians make suggestions to the patients to relax and focus their minds, and to change their habits, such as quitting smoking by creating a highly relaxed state of inner concentration and focused attention. Hypnosis can sometime be more effective than non-hypnotic interventions. Hypnotherapy can provide analgesia, reduce stress, relieve procedural anxiety, improve sleep, improve mood. Cognitive hypnotherapy refers to an empirically-based approach using cognitive behavioral therapy to achieve an integrative approach to clinical hypnosis. This book intends to reevaluate hypnosis and hypnotherapy in the light of brain sciences findings, trying to explain the scientific mechanism of hypnosis, the assessment and techniques used in clinical practice.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Ivana Barac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
