Abstract

This article responds to comments on Kirsch, Mazzoni, & Montgomery (2007). Contrary to the perceptions of some commentators, the target article was not aimed at supporting a particular view of hypnosis. Instead, it was a reminder of a long accepted axiom in hypnosis research: the effects of hypnotic suggestions cannot be attributed to hypnosis unless it is demonstrated that the same suggestion does not produce the effect outside of hypnosis.
