The Illness/Non-Illness Model: Hypnotherapy for Physically Ill Patients
Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel
This article proposes a focused, novel sub-set of the cognitive behavioral therapy approach to
hypnotherapy for physically ill patients, based upon the illness/non-illness psychotherapeutic model
for physically ill patients. The model is based on three logical rules used in differentiating illness
from non-illness: duality, contradiction, and complementarity. The article discusses the use of hypnotic
interventions to help physically ill and/or disabled patients distinguish between illness and
non-illness in their psychotherapeutic themes and attitudes. Two case studies illustrate that patients in
this special population group can be taught to learn the language of change and to use this language
to overcome difficult situations. The model suggests a new clinical mode of treatment in which individuals
who are physically ill and/or disabled are helped in coping with actual motifs and thoughts
related to non-illness or non-disability
