I can't imagine for one minute a representative for a school would even entertain this anyway. If a person is professional enough to ethically practice in any region of hypnosis then they have the sommon sense and intellect to realise the inherant dangers, not just of something which might happen but the consequences of things which happen on many levels and even other issues like a parent who wants to make a quick buck. There are many things that you will also understand very well seeing as you are a trained hypnotist, right? Like the fact that if you are not 110% clear on your voice, timeline, intonation, candence and language patterns then you can potentially be installing ticking timebombs in children's minds and, as you know, you don't even have to use "official" hypnosis on children to affect them. Before I finish, let me ask you this. What are the percentages that you could have a child up on stage who has issues and may abreact. Are you ready for that? Are you ready for the reaction of the school and parents of every child, the papers? Even though I am still not sure that thie original post was a genuine one, I must still advise you to stay clear. Please. Don't forget we are dealing with little people who have to take home a not for their parent or guardian to sign for going on a school trip.... and you want to play with their subconscious? Children, in school have no choice as to whether they are there or not. If a child does not like something that happens in class, they can tell the teacher but they have no means of getting out of the building and getting home. *****Being part of a stage hypnosis show during a school event is child abuse, no if's, no buts.***** If it happened to my kids I would report the performer to social services, the school to the authorities, I would take it to the media and I would be certain to show the performer that hypnosis was not the only way of inducing a deep, relaxed state.
