Hypnosis has a part to play in nearly every aspect of burn care, from the initial visit through tubbing and grafting
and finally to rehabilitation. Early hypnosis attenuates the inflammatory response to the injury, limiting the usual
"progression" of the burn. Procedural pain can be controlled, guilt and anger about the accident need to be alleviated,
caloric intake can be increased, and active participation in physical therapy can be enhanced. All of this will be covered
with lectures, slides, and videotapes.
