The HANDBOOK OF HYPNOTIC SUGGESTION is a desk reference for therapists and doctors using hypnotherapy in a therapeutic setting. An official publication of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis, it compiles the induction scripts and healing metaphors of over 100 practicing hypnotherapists. It compares their diverse styles and methods, while helping the reader choose appropriate techniques considering the individual patient's personality, motivations, and stated goals. Not intended as a quick fix for difficult cases, the HANDBOOK OF HYPNOTIC SUGGESTION is intended as an educational resource to supplement textbooks and hypnotherapy courses. It provides practical techniques and suggestions for formulating hypnotic and posthypnotic suggestions, using hypnosis in pain management and ego-strengthening, among other topics of concern. This book is ideal for clinicians who are not using hypnotherapy daily and who are seeking the benefit of exhaustive experience and research. The HANDBOOK FOR HYPNOTIC SUGGESTION provides practical, authoritative suggestions that will help hypnotherapists become more flexible and varied in their practice, preparing them for the needs of the most diverse selection of patients.
