Dr. Richard Nongard joins me today to discuss the hypnosis research every hypnotist needs to know about. He highlights seven of the most important pieces of research that the modern-day hypnotist should be aware of, the dangers of referring to research conducted years ago, and reveals where you can find peer-reviewed studies. Richard also shares research on topics such as what makes hypnosis effective, hypnosis in childbirth, and effective hypnosis interventions to address obesity.
