This article considers links between clinical hypnosis,
attachment theory, and oxytocin. First, it proposes that commonalities
between clinical hypnosis and attachment theory may improve our
understanding of the hypnotherapeutic process. Then, it suggests that
an integrative model unifying clinical hypnosis and attachment theory
may constitute a link between clinical hypnosis and a neurobiological
factor such as oxytocin. Finally, it discusses the implications of these
hypotheses for clinical practice and future researches.
