The historical evolution of hypnosis reveals a common link with many other psychotherapies - a gradual transformation involving a reduction of suggestive intervention in favour of a more natural process that respects the individual's human qualities and restores the strength of their resources. The hypnosis of the past, which for countless centuries was based primarily upon mystical concepts and the power of suggestion, authority and charisma, was artificially constructed and essentially supernatural. Thanks largely to the work of Milton Erickson, today's "New Hypnosis" tends to manifest itself as a widespread natural condition. Simple observation is not always capable of distinguishing this condition from the waking state, which can arise spontaneously and repeatedly. This innovative and naturalistic 'Ericksonian' concept has been reinforced by the recent development of neuro-imaging methods which allow for detailed investigation of the role of hypnosis in the working brain and in neuro-science in general. The scientific journal Ipnosi aims to provide an ideal forum for psychotherapists, researchers, doctors, psychiatrists, scholars in general, and anyone interested in hypnosis and its various applications in an international setting characterised by deep and continuous change.
