Hypnosis interactions are thought to have distinct styles depending on the dyad of hypnotist and subject who participate in the hypnosis interaction. The currently available tools to assess the hypnosis style have several limitations, one of them being that they can only be used by skilled hypnotherapists.

Our current project aims to validate a newly developed tool that can be used to assess the characteristics of the hypnosis interaction by non-clinician raters.
