Paul Dell article wins Important Award An article by ISSTD Fellow, Paul Dell, PhD, recently won the Society for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis’ Ernest R. & Josephine R. Hilgard Award for Best Theoretical Paper on Hypnosis: “Reconsidering the autohypnotic model of the dissociative disorders [Journal of Trauma & Dissociation, 19(5)]. The article challenges the hypnosis field and the dissociation field to re-think (1) the link between autohypnosis and dissociation, and (2) the nature of the dissociative disorders. The article contends that the dissociative disorders are forms of hypnotic psychopathology. This is the second year in a row that Dell has won SCEH’s Hilgard Award for the best theoretical paper on hypnosis. Last year, Dell’s article, “Is high hypnotizability a necessary diathesis for pathological dissociation?” [Journal of Trauma & Dissociation, 18:1, 58-87], won the Hilgard Award. That article refutes the longstanding belief that there is no meaningful relationship between high hypnotisability and psychopathology.
