Anesthetist and pain specialist, Maria Paola Brugnoli, brings together her experience, knowledge and emotional intelligence in this integrative work on clinical hypnosis and pain management. In it, she presents a new system approach to study the neurophysiological states of consciousness to improve the use of clinical hypnosis and mindfulness in pain therapy and palliative care. The book explores the fields of clinical hypnosis and mindfulness as applied to the therapy of suffering and various type of acute and chronic pain, and in dying patients. It is organized in order to show all scientific neuropsychological theories currently in use regarding various types of pain and suffering. The author’s deep sensitivity is most notable in her attention to the dignity of the person in pain. She gathers together the techniques for distracting them from the painful present and transporting them to another dimension. One can imagine her psychological hand-holding and support as she moves her patients from suffering to relief. Ample scripts are provided to the reader for many inductions. The handbook is enriched by medical and hypnotic techniques for pain analgesia as well as hypnotic deepening techniques to activate spiritual awareness. It also indicates when and how to use them with children and adults. With extensive references, this book offers accessible concepts and practical suggestions to the reader. It highlights the relational and the creative process, encouraging each clinician to find his or her own way of facilitating the mechanisms in the patient to alleviate pain and suffering. This book is intended for all the professionals working every day with pain and suffering.
