Research shows that many people react differently to different types of hypnotic induction--yet many hypnotherapists are confined to using only one technique. This practical book makes three radically different types of hypnosis easy to use in daily hypnotic work, exploring the methods of Milton H. Erickson, George Estabrooks and David Elman, presenting them in such a way as to allow a clear and accessible understanding. A resource for all students, trainers and therapists, it includes a range of powerful scripts for improved hypnotic work.
This book explores methods that employ Direct Authoritarian approaches, Indirect Permissive approaches, and techniques that place responsibility for hypnosis on the client. An invaluable resource for all trainers and therapists, it includes a range of powerful scripts.
An excellent introductory text for students beginning to study the art and science of hypnosis. --David Shephard B.Sc.,The Performance Partnership
This is a digital recording of Tad James at his best in deep hypnosis. Recorded in London, the CD set outlines three kinds of hypnosis from Ericksonian, to Estabrooks’, to Elman. The following outline of hypnosis is based on the works of Milton Erickson, the father of hypnosis in America, and the conception of trance states by Stephen Wolinsky.
• Trance phenomena are at the core of symptom structure and, thus, at the core of symptom relief. Clients present symptoms and trances together.
• We create the trance process as a coping mechanism, originally in response to the content of trauma.
• We enter trance states frequently, in a series of attachments and identifications
• We are not our trances
• We may develop a hypnotic identity, which means we have fused with a set of
• experiences which define how we view ourselves. It is limited, fixated and narrow, compared to our being.
• Changing the trances that hold the symptom structures together will have a cybernetic effect, impacting the deeper "organising principle" (which generates our behavioral, emotional and lifestyle inevitabilities).
