Product Description

Review

'Yapko has made the best text on hypnosis even better. His commitment to sound science, clarity of reason and pragmatic applications is communicated with a passion in this new edition of Trancework. The freshness of information and skills, built on the wisdom of former editions, make this a state-of-the-art book for every therapist who wants to be (and shouldn't we all be?) a state-of-the-art practitioner.' - George W. Burns, clinical psychologist, Author, 101 Healing Stories and Standing Without Shoes

If you study hypnosis you can find lots of useful information in here.

It's great to have in your practice for techniques and scripts.

If you have more than a passing interest in hypnosis and hypnotherapy then this is a very good book - to reference - and also to learn with.

Michael Yapko is gifted in writing as well as practicing using hypnosis as a therapeutic intervention - and I feel genuinely privileged to own and have this book in my collection...

Hypnosis is a subject that will have you collecting books - because the "word" is the "magic button" we use - to turn an unhelpful idea / belief into a more helpful one to create lasting change...

I am a happy, healthy non-smoker vs I'm a nicotine addict... Your choice...

The book "Trancework" is now in its 3rd edition and is over 10 years old - and will probably become a classic - due to the depth of the information it contains.

It starts off by helpfully covering the "conceptual framework" and asking questions such as, "What is hypnosis - and as importantly - can it help?"

Each chapter (and there's 22 of them) has a conclusion, set of experiential exercises and a list of references - so it would benefit you to have a study partner and a journal to help you get the most out of this book.

The layout and the writing style is quite academic - but not overly dry and boring as some texts unfortunately are - it's written in a way that flows quite nicely.

Reading wise - a chapter at a time - rather than the whole book. Some books you can pick up and read in one sitting - whereas Trancework covers so much material and is quite thought provoking - I reckon you may benefit from glancing at the contents page and dipping in and out initially - and then just setting some goals to read and experience each chapter over a set period of time.

Ok I've given this a 3, but, I have to say Yapko has written comprehensively on the subject and that he definitely knows his stuff so in that way his book deserves a 4, or even a 5.

But, (and that's the sort of "but" that negates everything before it) this is such a technical and complicated book that it's not actually all that helpful to the everyday practitioner or hypnotherapist. It reads like a post graduate text book - think of yourself yawning in a stuffy library somewhere in the world. I don't understand why a teacher or communicator would make the subject less accessible in their book.

I'd suggest Ericksonian Approaches instead to be honest.

This book is easy to read and well structured. It's broken down into lots of small subjects so it's easy to search or to read bits at a time. Better than a reference book.

I cannot praise Yapko's book highly enough. It is aimed at practicing and new Hypnotherapists and fills in any gaps. It is a great reference document for those trained in hypnosis.
