Hypnosis is a state of consciousness in which the increased ability to respond to suggestions modifies the phenomenology associated with its ordinary state. There is little literature that shows a relationship between the state of conscious-ness and the response to treatments. We report the preliminary results of an inves-tigation of the relationship between the phenomenology of consciousness, investi-gated through the Pekala Consciousness Inventory (PCI) and the efficacy of an integrated self-management treatment, that includes the self-hypnosis, for the con-trol of pain and anxiety.
Keywords: hypnosis, consciousness, self-management, phenomenology, self-hypnosis, pain.
