Offering an entirely new fundamental model of hypnosis from an Ericksonian perspective, this book is valuable to the beginning and intermediate practitioner who wants to add hypnotherapy into clinical practice. It provides a comprehensive genealogy (an Ericksonian family tree), testimony to Dr. Erickson s significant influence; deconstructs the key concepts of hypnosis; presents real-life cases, dispels myths; and demystifies the process of eliciting trance. It also compares and contrasts the traditional model of hypnosis with the Ericksonian model; delves into hypnotic evocative communication, the language of hypnosis, and the ARE model of hypnotic induction; and distinguishes between the three aspects of human experience: emotion, moods, and states, with states being the most operative in the elicitation of hypnosis. Written with passion, expertise, and experience gleaned directly from Dr. Erickson, THE INDUCTION OF HYPNOSIS: An Ericksonian Approach fades the stereotypical image of hypnosis as magic and mojo and brings into the light the real power and purpose of modern clinical hypnosis.
