Dealing, in clinical practice, with easily hypnotizable subjects is very useful, given the abundant use of hypnosis in various area of health care. This paper try to understand if and how is possible to increase the hypnotic susceptibility through a program called Carleton Skill Training Program (CSTP), a program oriented to low hypnotic susceptibility subjects. It investigates the theory underlying the program in order to further explicate the purposes and essential steps that make it up. Finally we debate the fundamental components of the CSTP as well as have been identified by several scholars who have studied it in order to understand the reason for his evident success.

Avere a che fare con soggetti facilmente ipnotizzabili nella pratica clinica è molto vantaggioso dato l’abbondante uso che viene fatto oggi dell’ipnosi nei vari ambiti della cura e della salute. L’articolo si propone di capire se e come è possibile aumentare la suscettibilità ipnotica attraverso un programma chiamato Carleton Skill Training Program (CSTP), un programma rivolto a soggetti con una bassa suscettibilità ipnotica. Si indaga la teoria che è alla base del suddetto programma al fine di esplicitarne ulteriormente i fini e i passi essenziali che lo compongono. Infine si trattano le componenti fondamentali della CSTP così come sono state individuate dai diversi studiosi che se ne sono occupati per capire il motivo del suo evidente successo.
Keywords: Ipnosi, suscettibilità ipnotica, Carleton Skills Training (CSTP), aspettative, teorie socio-cognitive.
