Abstract and Keywords

Clinicians typically possess considerable interest about what interventions work and do not work; however, they often dismiss the notion that they can make viable contributions to the scientific literature. This state of affairs derives in part from an unfortunate assumption that the only true experiment is a between-groups experiment. This article describes how clinicians working with hypnosis can carry out researches like the single-case time-series design, which is particularly compatible with real-world clinical practice. This article shows how robust time-series studies can be carried out by fulltime clinicians. It first describes and reviews some available time-series designs and then discusses issues related to dependent measures and data collection in time-series studies. Furthermore it reviews some available time-series data analytic techniques and describes a new data analytic technique. This chapter also describes the rationale of single-case time-series studies and how these studies might be crafted by those interested in hypnosis.

Keywords: single-case time-series design, scientific literature, clinical literature, systematic tracking, academic clinical researchers
