Abstract
This project explores the theoretical, theological, and ethical implications of hypnosis as a mode of pastoral counseling, conducting and evaluating a two-day training program in hypnosis for clergy and pastoral counselors. The project demonstrates that hypnosis is a theoretically, theologically, and ethically appropriate tool for pastoral counseling and that training in hypnosis will significantly change counseling behavior.
