Because of deficiencies in and neglect of adolescents' developmental needs, some modern adolescents seem to lack the necessary emotional maturity to cope with demands made on them by a rapidly changing, complex society. There is an urgent need for a dynamic, short-term therapy for delving (within the shortest time possible) into the actual underlying (and more often subconcious) causes of the symptoms which are being presented. The objective of this investigation was to determine whether Medical hypnoanalysis is an effective therapeutic technique in guiding emotionally vulnerable adolescents towards growth in emotional maturation. Medical hypnoanalysis and its application to emotionally vulnerable adolescents is elucidated by means of a literature study and a number of case studies. The general population from which the test sample was made up, comprised 9 grade 11 adolescents who were enrolled as learners at Hoerskool Vereeniging. The test sample who participated in this investigation, comprised 5 grade 11 learners. The Millon Adolescent Clinical Inventory (MACI), the High School Personality Questionnaire (HSPQ), the General wellness questionnaire, the Vulnerable adolescent questionnaire, and graphic expression media were used as measuring instruments for pre- and post-test results. Emotional maturation qualities which served as criterion for growth in emotional maturation were identified. Three sub-hypotheses were formulated, tested and accepted, namely: (a) The occurence of emotional vulnerability in adolescents can be related to traumatic experiences from conception to early childhood. (b) Age regression can provide information on the initial events that caused emotional vulnerability in adolescents. (c) The change in thought and behaviour patterns which stem from adolescents' earliest memories can be related to growth in emotional maturation in emotionally vulnerable adolescents. The findings of the investigation indicate that Medical hypnoanalysis is an effective therapeutic technique in guiding emotionally vulnerable adolescents towards growth in emotional maturation.
