Etiology of PNES is still unknown. Nonetheless, evidences on its origin, course and therapy are growing. Hypnosis is historically known as effective therapy but results in the literature are lacking. Moving from the Ultra-short Hypnosis- based Treatment for Conversion Disorders by Camillo Loriedo, the author developed an intervention focused on PNES peculiar features. In the first part of the paper, the most relevant neurofunctional and psychological evidences will be reviewed and a interpretative hypothesis will be illustrated. In the second part, the Functional Disconnection Model will guide a manualization of the hypnotic intervention, with clinical reports and technical suggestions.
