In this section of "History of Psychotherapy," Dr. Cavanagh presents a thorough look at the beginnings and development of the use of hypnosis in medicine pointing to its role in the discovery of the unconscious and in the birth of psychotherapy itself. He also treats the controversies of the moral implications and effect on the will and behavior control in the use of hypnosis.
