Beskrivning

Clinical psychotherapy research suffers from a lack of double blind trials which would allow to control for the effect of expectancy to test the effects of main effective components.
So far there is no well validated placebo control conditions for hypnosis interventions. In this study we aim to validate a sham hypnosis induction method that can be used in future laboratory and clinical research to control for the effect of expectancy.
