Hypnotizability, eating behaviors, attitudes, and concerns : A literature survey
Hutchinson-Phillips, Susan, Gow, Kathryn M., & Jamieson, Graham A. (2007) Hypnotizability, eating behaviors, attitudes, and concerns : A literature survey. International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis, 55(1), pp. 84-113.
The literature suggests that aspects of hypnotizability may be involved in the etiology and maintenance of self-defeating eating. However, interpretation of the published research findings has been complicated by the use of instruments that appear to have measured different or, at best, only related facets of the underlying constructs. This article reports relationships between weight, shape, dietary concerns, hypnotizability, dissociative capacity, and fantasy proneness. Implications for a key role for hypnosis in the treatment of eating behaviors, attitudes, and concerns are discussed.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
