The State of Hypnosis with Dr. John Mohl, Ph.D.
In episode 10 of the Chicago Psychology Podcast, Dr. John Mohl, Ph.D. joins Kyle & Scott discuss the history and current state of hypnosis. John is an educator and research psychologist, and the current president of APA's Division 30, the Division of Psychological Hypnosis. John talks about his path to becoming a psychologist, explains the phenomena of hypnosis, it's history and its body of research, and the importance in the field of psychology.
To that end, we ask the question: "Just what is hypnosis?" The conversation goes to great lengths to answer this and separates myths from facts. It is a heady chat, so get ready to dive deep into hypnotic history and phenomena.
Dr. Mohl also gives his opinion about the recent decision of the College Board to remove hypnosis from their standards for the teaching of psychology at the high school, and what this means for the teaching of psychology on a college level as well
