This book provides a comprehensive overview of the use of hypnosis in the forensic setting, enriched by detailed clinical case material. Arguing that the existing psychological and legal literature fails to address many of the "grey areas" for practitioners of hypnosis with witnesses and victims of crime, the authors aim to illuminate the full complexity of the ethical, legal, and professional issues involved. They offer detailed procedural guidelines ? highlighting issues such as recovered memories, faking, and the rights of hypnosis subjects ? to help practitioners cope with the demands of criminal and legal investigations and to ensure the welfare and well?being of subjects.
