This DVD demonstrates rapid and instantaneous inductions that creative, insightful clinicians can easily adapt for use in their clinical settings. Hypnosis has been considered time intensive, but it doesn't have to be. These actual demonstrations by Dr. Filo includes some that are verbal, some that are non-verbal, and some that are physical inductions. Careful observation will reveal that each induction contains the basics of all professional hypnotic interactions--rapport, focusing, deepening, re-alerting and debriefing and since these inductions are ultimately for clinical use, appropriate generic suggestions are also demonstrated. In addition, a real world application is demonstrated with a patient who is dental-phobic showing the replacement of a filling without any local anesthetic. Also included is a 16 page Learning Guide explaining each of the demonstrations.
The Elman Induction is rightly regarded as a timeless classic. This unique book takes the induction and brings it right up to date, by sharing the process as Elman taught it, as well as possible alternative understandings of what it taking place. "Excellent, thoughtful study of the Dave Elman Induction. Graham Old dissects the technique and offers very useful insight on all aspects of what is probably the most useful hypnotic induction ever developed... I recommend this work for Elman aficionados as well as those not familiar with Elman who are wondering what all the fuss is about with this famous induction." -- Sean Michael Andrews - Atlantic Hypnosis Institute and Leading Authority on the Elman Induction "The most useful and in depth treatment of an often misunderstood induction." -- Melissa Tiers, author of Integrative Hypnosis: A Comprehensive Course in Change
"During the past several years there have been ever-increasing numbers of physicians, dentists, and psychologists interested in hypnosis, both therapeutic and investigative. Reliable sources of clinical information and instruction were practically non-existent except for a few scattered individuals. To meet this need, to interest universities, and to stimulate medical and dental schools to an awareness of the importance of teaching clinical hypnosis, a group of experienced clinicians competent in teaching were formed. Throughout the United States, under the auspices of various professional societies and universities, this group conducted seminars on hypnosis. "This book is compiled from the tape recordings of dozens of those seminars, and thus it contains the material as it was presented, with all the simplicity, directness, and effectiveness of the classroom presentation. "It is no more, no less, than a comprehensive presentation of the material upon which thousands of clinicians throughout the United States have based the initiation and development of their successful clinical use of hypnosis." -Milton H. Erickson, M.D. (1961)
In today's managed mental health care environment, clinical hypnosis has become popular as a tool for alleviating symptoms promptly. This book is about using ideomotor (IM) signals in the rapid hypnoanalysis of psychosomatic disorders. The technique of rapid hypnoanalysis addresses the whole brain and places the feeling back into brief therapy without removing the logic or the efficiency. It offers a refreshing alternative that allows therapists to go deeper while being even briefer. Part I covers basic concepts and principles. The value, principles, and treatment planning of hypnoanalysis are discussed, including special intake questions and how to set up ideomotor signals. Part II covers basic applications of rapid hypnoanalysis and illustrates their employment. The seven common causes of psychosomatic disorders, ideomotor applications to Direct Suggestion in Hypnosis (DSIH), hypnotic preparation and care of the surgical patient, self-hypnosis, and treating the cognitive and emotional components of persistent pain are examined. Part III presents clinical transcripts of cases to illustrate the actual uses of the technique with psychosomatic patients. These transcripts explore the technique with a complex smoking cessation patient, a simple smoking recall session, a one-visit cure of a hypersensitive scar, and a workshop demonstration session with an asthma patient. This is a "how-to" book that provides numerous case examples and illustrations showing specifically how ideomotor analysis techniques are used.

Training Trances is about how to therapeutically communicate with the unconscious mind. The authors present their own unique integration of Ericksonian techniques, traditional models of hypnotherapy, and recent research in related areas. Numerous new patterns modeled from the work of Milton H. Erickson, M.D. are clearly explained and demonstrated. The use of trance in training design, to unconsciously install the skills being taught to the participants, is also covered. The book developed from transcripts of a four day workshop, and the design of the book parallels the design chosen for the training itself. Individual exercises or those done in groups of two or three are offered so that the reader may practice the techniques and learn the skills. There are numerous "live" demonstrations, inductions, and double inductions which create for the reader a real "feel" of how hypnosis is done and which are also a rich source for linguistic analysis for the advanced reader. Written with insight and humor, this book's most unique twist is its use of multi-level communication and hypnotic language to create a "training trance" for the readers as they journey through the text. Some hypnotic references are obvious and explicit -- those which are not obvious will create enjoyable "ah-ha!" experiences for the reader as they are discovered.

Since 1979, when the second edition of Erika Fromm and Ronald E. Shor's classic Hypnosis was published, the field of experimental hypnosis has expanded enormously. Filling the need for a definitive reference that incorporates the plethora of ideas and methodologies that have emerged over the last 13 years, this completely new volume continues in the Fromm-Shor tradition by presenting an authoritative survey of contemporary hypnosis research, methodology, and theory. To provide the reader with an even-handed, complete treatment of all currently prominent research areas and theories in one book, chapter authors were selected to represent the entire range of the field. Divided into three parts, the book first reviews both the theoretical perspectives and history of hypnosis research. Chapters in Part II cover empirically based theories with discussion of dissociation, psychopathology and psychological regression, as well as explication of a social-psychological approach and an ego-psychological theory. Surveying the broad areas of hypnosis research, Part III presents chapters on an array of topics including research design and considerations, phenomenology, neuropsychophysiology, and methodology in psychological research. Situational and personality correlates of hypnotic responsiveness and the effects of hypnotic procedures on memory are examined, and the relationship between hypnosis and creativity is discussed. Other subjects covered are the experiential method, self-hypnosis and personality, clinical research, and the measurement of hypnotic ability. In addition, the editors have gathered the book's over 1,450 references into one large bibliographic section, making this an ideal resource that will be used often and easily. Veteran researchers and theoreticians will find the chapters on theoretical paradigms and programmatic research in this scholarly resource both informative and challenging. Students and beginning researchers will find CONTEMPORARY HYPNOSIS RESEARCH to be the perfect hands-on tool, providing them with conceptual underpinnings, methodological perspectives, and scholarly documentation. Psychologists, social workers, physicians, and other clinicians who wish to gain better empirical and theoretical understanding of the field will find it an excellent reference.
What is hypnosis? Despite widespread misconceptions, hypnosis is not a treatment in itself; instead, it is a facilitator -- a useful diagnostic tool that can help the practitioner choose an appropriate treatment modality and accelerate various primary treatment strategies. The second edition of this remarkable work (first published 25 years ago) is written to provide both beginning and seasoned practitioners with a brief, disciplined technique for mobilizing and learning from an individual's capacity to concentrate. Putting to rest both exaggerated fears about hypnosis and overblown statements of its efficacy, this compelling volume brings scientific discipline to a systematic exploration of the clinical uses and limitations of hypnosis. The challenge was to develop a clinical measurement that could transform a fascinating amalgam of anecdotes, speculations, clinical intuitions and observations, and laboratory advances into a more fruitful and systematic body of information. Thus was born the authors' Hypnotic Induction Profile (HIP), a crucial 10-minute clinical assessment procedure that relates the spectrum of hypnotizability to personality style, psychopathology, and treatment outcome. Structured to reflect the flow of a typical evaluation and treatment session and highlighted by case examples throughout, this remarkable synthesis describes how to use the HIP, reviews relevant literature, and details principles and short- and long-term treatment strategies for smoking control; eating disorders; anxiety, concentration, and insomnia; phobias; pain control; psychosomatic disorders and conversion symptoms; trichotillomania; stuttering; and acute and posttraumatic stress disorders and dissociation. Meticulously referenced and indexed, this in-depth work concludes with an appendix on the interpretation and standardization of the HIP.This unique work stands out in the literature because It is written both as an introduction for practitioners new to hypnosis and as an in-depth guide for practitioners with wide experience in hypnosis. Unlike current clinical works, it emphasizes the importance of performing a systematic assessment of hypnotizability to identify, measure, and utilize a given patient's optimal therapeutic potential -- a process that, until now, has been relegated to clinical intuition. It describes human behavior phenomenologically as it relates to hypnosis in a probable rather than an absolute fashion. It reviews only specific portions of the literature that are particularly relevant to the important themes presented by the authors. Wherever possible, the authors apply statistical methods to test their hypotheses. The realm of scientific investigation encompassing hypnosis and psychological dysfunction is comparatively new. This exceptional volume, with its profusion of systematic data, will spark controversy and interest among scientific students of hypnosis everywhere, from psychiatrists, psychologists, and psychoanalysts to physicians, dentists, and other interested clinicians.

Epilepsy is a difficult illness to control; up to 35% of patients do not respond fully to traditional medical treatments. For this reason, many sufferers choose to rely on or incorporate complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) into their treatment regimens. Written for physicians, knowledgeable laypersons, and other professionals, Complementary and Alternative Therapies for Epilepsy bridges the worlds of traditional medicine and CAM to foster a broader perspective of healthcare for patients. The book respects cultural differences that may incorporate alternative medicine into a medical management program, and encourages patients to safely continue receiving necessary medical treatments. Wherever possible, scientific evidence supports the choice of treatment modalities, as well as the effectiveness of a combined traditional and CAM approach. Readers will find incisive discussions in sections on: Learning to Reduce Seizures Asian, Herbal and Homeopathic Therapies Nutritional Therapies Alternative Medical Therapies Oxygen Therapies Manipulation and Osteopathic Therapies Music, Art, and Pet Therapies From stress and epilepsy, to acupuncture, massage, craniosacral therapies, homeopathy, ketogenic diets, aromatherapy, hypnosis, and more, the book is all-inclusive and enlightening. Additional commentary by the editors provides a critical vantage point from which to interpret the data and viewpoints of the contributors, all experts in the therapies presented. This balanced, scientific approach will appeal to even those most skeptical of alternative therapies, making the book essential for every professional who seeks to provide the broadest range of effective patient care.
