Abstract: Dissociation can be described as the failure to integrate information and self-attributions that should ordinarily be integrated, and as alterations of consciousness characterized by a sense of detachment from the self and/or the environment. The strong connection between hypnosis and dissociation is known since the time of Pierre Janet's pioneer work. Dissociative hypnotic intervention demonstrated to be very useful in treating pain, anxiety disorders and many other conditions. But hypnosis can as well reactivate the natural process of mind, to reconnect both the dissociated mind and body parts, into a functional and unified self, particularly after traumatic experiences. The role of specific techniques designed to re-establish integration will be described, as well as the role of rapport, the special hypnotic relationship. Since rapport can create both an intense interpersonal link with the hypnotist, and profound disconnections with the non-hypnotic reality, it should be considered a crucial part of the therapeutic approach to dissociative conditions. How to use rapport as well as other specific therapeutic interventions to re-establish the natural integrative links in a dissociative mind-body system will be outlined in this presentation.
