1 THEORETICAL OVERVIEW DR. WENTZEL COETZER Basics of hypnosis

2 The 6 stages. Build rapport Test compliance Bypass critical factor/ induction Deepening (use imagination) Give suggestions Waken patient

3 1) Building Rapport Matching and mirroring  Body posture  Speech  Tonality  Pace Establish artificial time constraints Accommodate non-verbals Sympathy or assistance theme Ego suspension Validate others  Listening  Thoughtfulness Ask – How when and why? Connect through quid pro quo Gift giving Manage expectations

4 2) Test Compliance Here we merely test if the patient will do as we ask them to do. If they do not comply – it means that we have not built enough Rapport. If they comply – we can continue with the “Bypass of Critical factor” / induction.

5 Complicance test PassPass FailFail Build Rapport Induction / Bypass Critical Factor

6 Things that make compliance easier. People are more likely to comply when they believe that they share something in common with the person making the request. When group affiliation is important to people, they are more likely to comply with social pressure. For example, if a college student places a great deal of importance on belonging to a college fraternity, they are more likely to go along with the group's requests even if it goes against their own beliefs or wishes. The likelihood of compliance increases with the number of people present. If only one or two people are present, a person might buck the group opinion and refuse to comply. Being in the immediate presence of a group makes compliance more likely.

7 Things that we can ask the patient to test compliance Turn head this way – then that way Open mouth – Little wider – little more closed Etc. etc Then ask them to close their eyes

8 3) Bypassing the Critical Factor -- Induction There are many ways to bypass the critical factor: We will only concentrate on two: Start with focussing the mind then lead into: (Focussing the mind helps to cut out the outside interferences) – Check Mind model in action 1) Expectation 2) Shock

9 Mind model - focus AnalyticalCritical Imagination Reactive Judgmental FOCUS on breathing

10 INDUCTION - Expectation Use the words: In a moment I am going to do X Y Z and you will experience ABC Reason why it works: - In next slide

11 Mind model - Expectation AnalyticalCritical Imagination Reactive Judgmental Because you are expecting it – you cannot be critical yet – however the subconscious mind will prepare itself as if it has already happened

12 INDUCTION - Shock How to do it? Setup – I think I can help you – would you let me? Why does it work?

13 Mind model - Shock AnalyticalCritical Imagination Reactive Judgmental When shock happens – the critical mind “Freezes”

14 4) Deepener Use imagination Use words : “ I want you to now imagine that with every breath that you take – you are relaxing more and more” Just relax your shoulders now Relax those hands, Your stomach With every breath just relax more and more – deeper and deeper.”

15 Mind model in action AnalyticalCritical Imagination Reactive Judgmental By stimulating the imagination, we are forcing the patient to use the subconscious mind – this forces the patient into a hypnotic trance.

16 Give suggestions Talk slowly Repeat suggestions In dentistry – especially suggestion of relaxation - Time passing fast and having a fun time - Jaw just being kept open Start with small, but easy to follow suggestions – work up to more demanding suggestions like pain- free / anaesthesia. – “circle of suggestion”

19 In Summery: AnalyticalCritical Imagination Reactive Judgmental Compliance test Eye closure Rapport: Allowing you access. Start to bypass Critical mind. Bypass Critical Mind Focus Expectation Shock Deepener Use imagination

21 6) Wake the patient Turn all the previous unwanted suggestions off. Count from 1 to 5 Use up beat tempo and tone Ask patient to open eyes feeling refreshed awake and totally aware of what is happening around him. “In a moment I am going to count from 1 to 5 – when I reach 5 you will open your eyes feeling refreshed, awake and totally aware of what is happening around you. 1.. Starting to surface – you will keep all the suggestions that will help you and loose all the other suggestions Waking a little more and surfacing faster NOW 3.. And 4 and 5 – Feeling refreshed, awake and totally aware of what is happening around you”
