At the June 11 HOTXSINC meeting . . .

 

 

Dr. Douglas Derrer, Yale-trained psychologist
who served more than two decades in the United States Navy,
spoke about Hypnosis:
its intriguing history, bizarre mythology,
interesting clinical applications, and neuroscience findings.  

This included the traits needed for hypnotizability,
stage vs. clinical hypnosis, as well as forensic hypnosis
and its uses in memory enhancement for witnesses and victims. 
Dr. Derrer also presented an exercise on hypnotizability.

About HOTXSINC

Welcome to Sisters in Crime
~ Heart of Texas Chapter

Heart of Texas is a chapter of Sisters in Crime, an international organization whose mission is to promote the ongoing advancement, recognition and professional development of women crime writers.

hotx-logo-72dpiWe are writers and readers, men and women, who share an interest in crime fiction. Current members live throughout Central Texas–from Waco on the north to New Braunfels on the south–but our territory has no borders: No matter where you live, you’re welcome here.

We meet monthly in Austin to hear speakers–authors, editors, book designers, publishers, attorneys, law enforcement officers, sociologists, forensic artists, scientists and technologists, and other professionals–present programs designed to improve writing skills and to broaden our knowledge of the worlds we read and write about. In addition, our own authors share their publications and works in progress.

Meetings are free and the public is invited.

Join us the second Sunday of each month, 2:15 p.m., on the third floor of BookPeople, 603 W. 6th Street (corner of W. 6th and N. Lamar). Click for map.
