This professionally produced 70-minute DVD demonstrates the use of a variety of hypnotic techniques with children. The use of hypnosis can comfort children and adolescents during procedures, injections and examinations, and help them to manage stress and cope with chronic disease.

Presenting symptoms include the relief of migraines; asthma control; enuresis (bed-wetting); recurrent abdominal pain; juvenile migraines and muscle tension headaches; needle phobia; and traumatic leukemia therapy.
