Front Cover
W. W. Norton & Company, 2006 - Medical - 140 pages

George Gafner\'s Handbook of Hypnotic Inductions provided clinicians with inductions ready-made for practice. Here, in response to the overwhelming success of that book, he provides more brand-new inductions for the beginning and advanced hypnotherapist. After briefly summarizing the theoretical foundations of hypnosis, Gafner presents the inductions in five main categories: story inductions, inductions for sleep, inductions for children, directive inductions, and confusional inductions. Detailed scripts for inducing the hypnotic state are presented, as well as strategies for deepening, re-alerting, and debriefing-all followed by insightful clinical comments, making this book a comprehensive and invaluable hypnosis resource for clinicians.
