A Note on the Indications for the Use of Hypnosis in Psychotherapy: An Illustrative Case Report: Margaret Brenman and Robert P. Knight. Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic, XII, 1948, pp. 49–56.

Ralph R. Greenson

Brenman and Knight state the thesis that hypnosis is not and should not be considered an independent type of therapy but that its usefulness depends entirely on its relevance to the therapeutic problem at hand. It may be used with utmost flexibility and in countless ways, the precise time and mode of application depending on the nature of the aims being pursued. The authors then describe the treatment of a schizophrenic patient who responded only to hypnosis because she needed the complete dependence of the hypnotic relationship. The authors are convinced that in this patient the use of hypnosis in the initial phase of the treatment and its abandonment later on was an important contribution to the good result.
