Hypnosis is a heightened sense of awareness where the person is receptive to suggestions.  During hypnosis, the individual is aware of what is taking place and he or she is totally in control.  I tend to use hypnosis in two ways when dealing with children with RAD.  One way I use hypnosis is when I am developing resources or coping skills with the child.  Secondly, I use hypnosis during trauma work with a client.  There has been two studies regarding hypnosis and trauma.  One study showed that hypnosis significantly decreased intrusion and avoidance symptoms and did so in fewer sessions.  I do not solely rely on hypnosis in treating trauma.  I tend to use it as an adjunct in my trauma work.

Hypnosis is a good way to talk to your patient about his personal feelings. The person might feel insecure to talk about his situation in front of a whole bunch of people. The way you said that you perform this sounds promising.
