"Hypnosis: Myth, Miracle, or Madness?"
Aubrey Immelman, Psychology
Friday, November 9
Little Theater, Q346, SJU
This presentation will provide a framework for discussing the myths of hypnosis, its therapeutic potential, and the convergence between hypnotic phenomena and socially constructed forms of "mass hysteria" -- for example the facilitated communication and recovered memory phenomena. The discussion will be accompanied by a live demonstration of hypnotic phenomena.
