Graham Old – Therapeutic Inductions
Rethinking Hypnosis from the Very Beginning
Within the world of hypnosis, there is a commonly held belief that a hypnotic induction is something that is performed to place someone into trance. The induction is thus seen as both something that must be executed perfectly in order to be effective, and yet also something this is inherently dispensable once it has achieved its goal.
This therapeutic inductions approach takes a different perspective by presenting the induction as an essential component of the therapeutic experience. With discussions ranging from the nature of hypnosis to the purpose of inductions and the process for creating impromptu therapeutic inductions, this is a practical and revealing book.
Based on transcripts of live training events, Therapeutic Inductions offers an insightful and lively examination of this valuable approach.
