In this pilot study, starting from the scientific evidence relating to the different states of modified consciousness achieved with vigilant hypnosis and the analysis of its similarities and differences with traditional hypnosis, Active Alert Hypnosis is used to obtain an improvement of performance and learning in a short time. The protocol devised, which allowed the achievement of one or more specific performance objectives, can also be integrated into a broader psychotherapy path.
