Abstract

Oral history interview with Margaret Brenman-Gibson, M.D., one of the first to use hypnosis in the treatment of psychological problems, especially war neuroses, discusses her early studies at the Menninger Clinic, and how World War II provided research opportunities for herself and other women. Her recent research has focused on patterns of creativity and a psycho-analytic biography of the playwright Clifford Odets. She explains how she combines work with marriage to playwright William Gibson and with motherhood. She is also an outspoken and active worker in the anti-nuclear movement.
