Israelis Use Front-Line Hypnosis
Treatment on Shell-Shock Troops

Israel Defense Force medi-
cal corps successfully used
hypnosis and suggestion to
treat battle-fatigued
(shell-shocked) soldiers at
front area treatment cen-
ters during the Lebanon
war, returning them fully
recovered to their battle
units within a day or so,
without any 'after effects.
The treatment was de-
scribed last week at the
week-long international
congress of the Israel and
European societies of hyp-
nosis in psychotherapy and

meeting at the Rambam
hospital in HAIFA. The con-
ference was attended by
some 250 psychologists,
psychiatrists, physicians
and dentists, including 150
delegates from abroad.
Drs. A. Levy and M.
Neumann, of the Tel Aviv
University medical school,

steeped in the tradition of
the land and in the pioneer-
ing spirit of the kibutz, of
which he has been a
member for nearly 40 years.
Shaham was born in
Tel Aviv in 1925. He is the
son of Eliezer Steinman,
the noted Hebrew author
and essayist. A member
of Kibutz Bet Alfa since
1945, he served as vice
chairman of the Israeli
Broadcasting Authority,
has worked as an editor
in the Sifriyat Poalim
publishing house, and
has also edited a bi-
monthly magazine.
Besides his books,
Shaham has written three
collections -of short fiction,
several children's books and
travel accounts, as well as
nine plays, several of which
have been translated and
performed abroad. He is the
recipient of five literary
awards in Israel.

uniforms and discipline.
The doctors said that
the uniforms, military
discipline, timetables
and rifle fire made for a
realistic atmosphere and
made it possible to treat
soldiers and return them
to their units in little
more than 24 hours.
Hypnosis also made it
possible to uncover the
soldier's unconscious guilt
feelings about surviving
while a comrade was killed,
helping to instill in him the
feeling that he did rightly
by at least saving himself,
the doctors said.

Beirut Horror

Israeli Defense Minister
Ariel Sharon told the judi-
cial commission of inquiry
last October that while it
was assumed that when Is-
rael sent the Phalangists
into the Palestinian refugee
camps there would be civi-
lian deaths, "None of us,
myself included, ever for
one moment in our worst
dreams anticipated or
feared a horror like that."

Her eyes are homes of si-
lent prayer.
