When the thought occurred to the author during the winter of 1898-99 to test the availability of hypnotic suggestion as a means of removing criminal impulses and substituting conscience-sensitiveness for moral anesthesia among young criminals and castaways, he was convinced that the results of his investigations would possess deep interest for the men and women of his profession, and he purposed publishing them, together with his conclusions, in the form of a medical monograph. But he was wholly unprepared for the sensation that has been excited throughout this country and in Europe by the premature birth of his report in the columns of the daily press. The demand for full and authentic information regarding hypnotic suggestion, which has suddenly become appreciated as a great moralizing power at its true worth and with an intelligent reference to the wide range of its applications, explains the appearance of the present volume.

Personality Clusters

Personality Clusters are groups of distorted and self-defeating beliefs, what behavioral scientists call schemas, which form challenging parts of our personality with their habitual emotional and behavioral reactions. Many of these Personality Clusters are the residual effects of trauma and ineffective emotional upbringing. We see examples of these clusters in persons suffering from early emotional abandonment, abuse, deprivation, and parental perfectionism. Often these Personality Clusters or groups of beliefs reside just outside of awareness. We may notice the impact of Personality Clusters when they abruptly emerge in our lives with periods of painful emotions, distorted and self-defeating thoughts, and behavior that pulls us into trouble such as addictions or feeling very remote from others. These clusters of beliefs may powerfully steer our lives in directions we'd rather not go.

Suggestibility and Hypnosis

 Dr. John Kappas (1925–2002) identified three different types of suggestibility in his lifetime that have improved hypnosis:
1.     Emotional Suggestibility A suggestible behavior characterized by a high degree of responsiveness to inferred suggestions that affect emotions and restrict physical body responses; usually associated with hypnoidal depth. Thus the emotional suggestible learns more by inference than by direct, literal suggestions.
2.     Physical Suggestibility A suggestible behavior characterized by a high degree of responsiveness to literal suggestions affecting the body, and restriction of emotional responses; usually associated with cataleptic stages or deeper.
3.     Intellectual Suggestibility The type of hypnotic suggestibility in which a subject fears being controlled by the operator and is constantly trying to analyze, reject or rationalize everything the operator says. With this type of subject the operator must give logical explanations for every suggestion and must allow the subject to feel that he is doing the hypnotizing himself.

Abnormal states, Hypnotism

There are certain abnormal mental states that deserve a passing notice. The chief physical change in sleep is a large reduction of blood in the brain. Its external features are the suppression of voluntary action and of the action of the senses. There may always remain, and there certainly often remains, the play of the imagination known as dreaming. The mental action seems to be sympathetic with the bodily state, and to be attended with very little control. While complete sleep involves the large arrest of voluntary life incident to muscular repose, there are many partial forms of it. The senses may remain cognizant of very many events; a slight uneasiness or a gentle push may call forth a change of position. "Words may be spoken; or, more rarely, words may be listened to and answered, if introduced in the line of existing impressions.

Constructive Alternativism.

With his theory of constructive alternativism, George Kelly [1] posited that our experiences of the world around us, including events that take place or our understanding of people, including ourselves, are open to an immense variety of interpretations. Kelly argued that no one construct is a final or definitively accurate way of grasping the world. Instead, we can always create alternative constructs to better explain or represent that which we observe. A revised construct can increase our ability to comprehend the world around us and help us feel that we can predict or control it. Therapists can use constructive alternativism to help clients who are depressed or anxious live happier lives by reconsidering the way the clients have appraised their lives. Cognitive therapy, in fact, is based to some extent on this premise.

The whole is other than the sum of the parts.

The gestalt effect is the form-generating capability of our senses, particularly with respect to the visual recognition of figures and whole forms instead of just a collection of simple lines and curves. In psychology, gestaltism is often opposed to structuralism. The phrase "The whole is greater than the sum of the parts" is often used when explaining gestalt theory, though this is a mistranslation of Kurt Koffka's [2] original phrase, "The whole is other than the sum of the parts". Gestalt theory allows for the breakup of elements from the whole situation into what it really is.

Post-Hypnotic Suggestion

James Richard Cocke (1863 – 1900), who had been blind since infancy, was an American physician, homeopath, and a pioneer hypnotherapist.
He was born in the South of the United States, and had been totally blind since he was an infant. His sight had been completely destroyed when acid was accidentally applied to his eyes when he was just three weeks old.
He was considered to be "highly educated"; and, despite his total blindness, "was able to go around the city at will", and "could play a piano with much skill":

Walter  Georg Groddeck ( 1866 – 1934 ) was a physician and writer regarded as a pioneer of psychosomatic medicine. German physician Georg Groddeck, who practised in Baden-Baden and was the pathfinder of psychosomatic medicine, astonished his numerous listeners and readers with his therapy connecting naturopathic treatment with psychoanalytic, suggestive and hypnotic elements. His foot and arm bath, massages and dietary cuisine are still practised today, although the bold doctrine of salvation, where he mauled his patients, is necessarily quite authoritarian, and a more reserved approach would be judged appropriate today. He said “To provide obedience [is the] foundation of medical art”.
