Experimental Hypnosis edited by Leslie LeCron
This book is interesting for more reasons than the quote below.
1st, It was first published in 1948
The page styles, typeface, line spacing and chapter break styles are the same as dianetics. Strikingly so..... I now believe that upon his desk that held Hubbard's typewriter, he had this book and a copy of William Sargant's manuscript of his 1955 publication date "Battle for the MIND". Circumstancial proof of my manuscript theory, is supported by Hubbard's Dianetics touching upon the all the same ideas, with many inverted, as the first half of Psychiatrist William Sargants book! ~ the part writtern prior to 1950!
2nd In the 1954 reprint is contained this update of L Ron Hubbard's Dianetics:
A third form of age regression has recently been publicized. In 1950 L. Ron Hubbard, a science fiction writer, published Dianetics,3 a book which aroused considerable public interest, though it was coldly received and ignored by the medical and psychological professions. In his therapy, Hubbard uses a form of regression which
LESLIE M. LE CRON 157
he labels "return." Although he denies that hypnosis is involved, this is definitely a hypnotic technique.
It seems to be a form of regression between the two types previously described. The subject relives an experience with great vividness and may have perception with all five senses. Some regressed behavior may be betrayed. But he is in both the present and the past. He speaks in the present tense, though he may comment about and analyze the experience he is describing as if also in the present time. His speech is normal to his real age.
Dianetic return can be obtained with surprising ease with most people. Only a very light trance state is needed. The regression is then obtained merely by directing the subject to go back in time to u particular age, date, or event. To facilitate this, frequent use is made of association to words.
While Hubbard has called attention to this form of regression, a good description of it was given by Freud 4 as long ago as 1892.
3rd - There is another technque described in this book, which in fact is a subset of the previously described confusion technique.
This method of advanced deep trance induction
is called "The Multiple-Dissociation Technique", and, it mixed with nazi occultic symbols
