    A note about these "Supplementary Lecture Notes"

Please note that these "Supplementary Lecture Notes" are supplementary in that the textbook itself is actually the "lecture notes" (that happened to get published as a book). So these notes are not meant to replace the textbook. What you will find here is a list of the topics that are covered in each class (usually just a list of the sections of the textbook), a summary of some of the material that is covered in class that is not in the textbook, and some references to the material that is not in the textbook.


Hypnotic phenomena
    hypnotic induction
    hypnotic suggestions
    video of hypnotic behaviour
Hypnotic susceptibility
    hypnotic susceptibility scales
    differences in hypnotic responding
Explanations of hypnosis
    sociocognitive theory of hypnosis
    tripartite theory of hypnosis
Applications of hypnosis
    hypnotically recalled memories
    clinical applications of hypnosis
    problems with hypnosis

The only thing that I am adding to the lecture that is not in the textbook is the showing of the first 10 minutes or so of a videotape illustrating hypnosis in three different situations: stage hypnosis, hypnosis for the treatment of pain, and a class demonstration of hypnosis. The videotape is called "Captive Minds: Hypnosis and Beyond" and is available in the King's library with the call number BF633.C37. Students who wish to see the tape can get it in the library.
