By overviewing the research that behavioral therapists use, specific methods and techniques that are based on hypnotic intervention are outlined and shared. What this means is that the new techniques you learn will be based on research and will have proven outcomes. It also means that when you finish this book you will have the resources and the methods to integrate these new tools into your hypnosis sessions.
This book was originally published as a Contextual Psychology but has been completely revised and updated so that clinical hypnosis professionals can also benefit from the tools of mindfulness, positive psychology, ACT therapy and other modalities that share common roots in trancework and hypnosis. Kelley T. Woods was invited to share her applications specifically with hypnosis clients.
This book will challenge your old ideas, and give you new ways of understanding hypnosis. One example:
“There is no study that shows one trance to be more effective than another trance – it is only hypnosis training programs selling an idea that makes this claim. Everything that happens “in” hypnosis happens “out” of hypnosis. This includes ALL hypnotic phenomena. It is the experience of hypnosis that is far more important than the depth of hypnosis, and depth itself doesn’t even exist, it is merely a metaphor and construct that helps us define the experience, but it is not itself the experience of hypnosis.”
