Hypnosis as an adjunct to habit reversal in the treatment of chronic facial motor tics
MetadataShow full item record
This case study describes the treatment of a 52-year-old woman for two facial motor tics. Treatment was centred around "habit reversal," a behavioural approach which is supported by the bulk of psychotherapy outcome research. Hypnosis was included as part of the treatment plan because the client had expectations for a positive therapeutic outcome from this technique and it was felt that it might enhance various components of the habit reversal package. After two sessions the client reported a significant reduction in the frequency of tics. Issues associated with the intervention are discussed.
