Book Description

31 May 2005
This outstanding manual on Ericksonian hypnotherapy has been thoroughly revised and updated. There are two new chapters - one on Metaphor Therapy and Guided Metaphor and the other on Ernest Rossi s work on the psychobiology of gene expression. The latter chapter also contains a section on the brain and hypnosis. Thomas South has extended his chapter on utilization with another section on pain control and the chapter on ethics and the law has also been significantly updated. Finally there is a new foreword by Roxanna Erickson Klein and Betty Alice Erickson. This work is the stately tree, supporting individuality, cooperation and diversity. It is filled with common-sense and uncommon sense, with atmosphere and sunshine, with metaphors for more individual growth, with practice exercises for the present and with thoughts for the future. It gives us all lessons in becoming better therapists, better people, and better members of our world. Roxanna Erickson Klein and Betty Alice Erickson from the new foreword

Product Description

Review

This is a wonderfully thorough training manual for hypnotherapy and specifically Ericksonian methods. Set in its historical context, the book systematically sets aside myths and misconceptions and covers the necessary groundwork of rapport building skills, methods of induction, and use of language. At the same time it usefully covers NLP skills in the context of hypnotherapy both in and out of trance, before entering into the specifics of inductions, hypnotic phenomena and use of metaphor. Filled with case studies covering a wide range of client types and client issues that can be helped through the use of hypnosis, this manual also takes good care to cover necessary ethical and legal considerations. Anyone intending to work with clients using NLP and/or hypnosis for any kind of change work, should give serious thought in advance to the matters raised in this excellent book. It is essential to have a clear understanding of the ethical issues involved and the boundaries that should be in place to contain your work - before taking on clients. This book goes a long way to help the reader and student in this. This book is recommended for: Anyone with a serious and responsible interest in learning the skills of hypnotherapy. Students and teachers of hypnotherapy and NLP. Summary: I highly recommend this excellent manual and have added it as essential reading for our trainee NLP Practitioners and Master Practitioners.

I do nothing else but recommend this book to you. The second edition is certainly worthy of purchase ( even if you already have the first). The editions and revisions make what I considered to be an already excellent book, even better. David Slater, Hypnotherapy Association --David Slater, Hypnotherapy Association

The beauty of this book is the quality of the writing. It is wonderfully easy to read providing a good overview of many aspects of Ericksonian hypnotherapy. It is also the funniest “serious” book I have read in years. Many of the case studies are hilarious – I particularly love the case of the “Hugest Fanny” (I promise it’s there in chapter 6 !) which had me in stitches. The book doesn’t go into great detail but concentrates on providing a broad overview of the field. It is an interesting and well written book and I recommend it for all students of hypnotherapy, or anyone interested the field.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the jacket 20 Aug 2003
By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
Just what the title says - a comprehensive manual of Ericksonian hypnotherapy for the serious student. Readable and enlightening, this would be an excellent text book for a hypnosis course. It covers a variety of inductions, rapport-building, solution-focused approaches, language patterns, ethical considerations... everything needed for a complete hypnotherapy training. It's on the reading list for the hypnosis section of my NLP practitioner trainings.

4.0 out of 5 stars Insightive and generally well explained 4 Jan 2001
Format:Hardcover
Psychology is a subject area that is dogged by jargon terminology, sometimes making it inaccesible for someone outside the field. While in places this book gets a little confused by the language it is giving us such an insight into, generally it is well explained and relatively simple. As a person who is relatively new to this field I found the book extremely useful, giving me a wide breadth of subject matter to think about. There are also useful exercises suggested at the end of the chapters.
While in places the authors present ideas without giving adequate explanation or examples, it is certainly worth buying if you have an interest in Ericksonain hypnosis & hypnotherapy.

5.0 out of 5 stars I wonder if you can imagine.. 4 Jun 2009
By L. Power TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
I first heard of Milton H. Erickson through NLP. My Voice Will Go with You: Teaching Tales of Milton H. Erikson by Sidney Rosen fueled my curiosity. That book focused mainly on Erickson's storytelling method, and his often counterintuitive yet incredibly effective approach to therapy.

I found his skill with language patterns particularly fascinating, and inspiring, although there is far more to Erickson's approaches than that.

So, when I trained in nlp and hypnotised many people practising with his scripts, I was quite astounded at how effective his indirect approach was in putting people in trance. I don't know if you can imagine how much fun it was learning how to stack metaphors, and use embedded commands.

A professional hypnotherapist and fellow trainer on my course recommended this book, saying it was better than any other four books about Erickson, and that it also could be used as a teaching manual.

Erickson's daughters Roxanna and Betty contribute a foreword to this book, as does Ernest Rossi. If both of Milton's daughter use this book as a training manual at their institute, then....

I own many books on Erickson, and my friend is quite correct. This book is better any other four books on Erickson.

If you are wondering about how this book relates to nlp, I am pleased to say that the authors do cover the different language patterns in much detail, and even explain the meta model. In this book I particularly like the popcorn metaphor. You might wonder what eating popcorn has to do with premature ahem closure, you'll wander know more after reading that segment.

By Richard Griffiths VINE VOICE

After studying hard and reading way too many books in 3 months, this is one of my top 20 books in this field. I started from an NLP learning point of view, however this book should be in the hands of anyone learning to use states of trance in their work. It's broad enough to be a useful reference and interesting enough to be a thorough read across the applications of talking therapy style work.

It covers the Meta model in quite some depth and also how it's used in reverse to induce trance along with further "Milton model" forms of language. Various other language forms are introduced and explained. I'd have liked more detail about "torpedo therapy" however I suspect I'm supposed to have the wit by now to create my own (that's NOT a gripe LOL).

They go onto to demonstrate using these skills without trance and relate various cases, and as noted, some of these will stick in your mind! (I read the Teaching Tale book mentioned-and that's another you should read through-because I said so and it's really interesting if you have any more than a passing interest in this field ;) )

Metaphor, Advanced metaphor and layered story telling are discussed and demonstrated also. There's plenty more, I just don't want to type any more right now!
