Australian norms for the Harvard Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility, form A



Australian norms for the Harvard Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility, form A



International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis 27(3): 294-304



Australian norms for the Harvard Group Scale of Hypnotic Susceptibility, Form A (HGSHS:A, Shor and E. Orne) are presented and results relating to score distributions, item difficulty level, reliability and validity are considered for 3 distinct samples of Australian students. Data are compared with both the original norms (Shor and E. Orne) and additional American (Coe) normative data. In the Australian context, HGSHS:A functions as a reliable, effective predictor of hypnotic susceptibility. The psychometric properties of the scale were uniform across all samples and reference groups considered. The accuracy of the scale appears to be most limited when it is used as a sole predictor of the subject's special aptitude for hypnosis.
