hypnosis video, 1 Aug 2009
I have purchased tons of video training courses over the years from some of the best training schools around this is one of the best and is very different from most training videos.
By demonstrating on a real client you can see how Ericksonian hypnosis is used to create of different hypnotic phenomena that can be utilised to help the client.
The DVD also comes with a transcript so that you can begin to stop some of the indirect techniques that are easily missed when watching.
This is the type of DVD you will have to watch many times to pick up on all the techniques used because there are so many and they are done indirectly.
I would go as far as saying that this is better than most of the videos of Erickson doing therapy. The best video I have seen of Erickson doing therapy is his DVD called 'so you wanted a trance demonstration now' but this DVD is up to date and the video and sound quality is good and in colour and it also demonstrates doing therapy rather than just a demonstration.
You will also get a step by step review of each technique on the second video as Stephen goes back through the video stopping at key points to tell you what he is doing.
The on line course will also be a great resource to discuss with other students what you learnt by watching the DVD and also to see the video from a different point of view which is one of the best ways of learning.
The online course has 10 units that cover the skills demonstrated on the DVD.
Unit 01: The Structure of an Ericksonian Hypnotherapy Session
Unit 02: Rapport
Unit 03: Information Gathering
Unit 04: Identifying Resources
Unit 05: Trance Induction
Unit 06: Therapeutic Intervention
Unit 07: Motivating Your Client
Unit 08: Ethics and Integrity
Unit 9: Recognising What To Do And When
Unit 10A: Therapy Video Part One - Training In Indirect Hypnosis - The complete unedited therapy session
Unit 10B: Therapy Video Part Two - Training In Indirect Hypnosis - The complete therapy session with commentary
This DVD is for anyone interested in any type of hypnosis not just indirect or Ericksonian because it will teach you a completely different way of Working with clients.
