Edward Weinshel

The author describes a technical device to be used with hypnoanalysis. After hypnosis is induced the patient is told to paint something. The patients produce paintings dealing with significant emotional conflicts; afterward, while the subject is still in the hypnotic state, associations can be obtained. Various resistances may arise during the painting or the associative procedure, and appropriate techniques must be utilized to circumvent these reactions. A danger in the use of this technique is the too sudden awareness of repressed traumas. This is a greater problem during hypnography than in waking analysis or verbal hypnoanalysis because an idea expressed symbolically in the paintings cannot be defended against as readily as a comparable idea expressed in words. However this problem can be effectively met by increasing the depth of the hypnosis, and Meares believes that this technique may have some value in psychiatric research and in the treatment of patients who will not speak readily under hypnoanalysis.
