Friedlander-Sarbin Scale

The Friedlander-Sarbin scale was developed in 1938 by Theodore R. Sarbin. It was a precursor to the Stanford Hypnotic Susceptibility Scale (SHSS) and many of the test items pioneered were also used in subsequent experimental scales. Specifically, the Friedlander-Sarbin scale looks into the client’s suggestibility as evidenced by closed eyes, immobile arms, interlocked fingers, inability to say his name, amnesia, and voice hallucination.
