Validating the New Remote Hypnotic Induction Profile (rHIP)

Not Recruiting

Trial ID: NCT04058483


The purpose of the study is to determine if hypnotizability can be reliably tested over the phone, without having to see or touch a patient. The scores from a new test for hypnotizability by phone will be compared to the scores from a standard in-person test, to make sure the results are similar.
