Patterns of Hypnotic Techniques of Milton Erickson…
Milton Erickson was a great inspiration for modern hypnotherapists. The fist vol gives a lot of insight into the man and his methods. Not to be missed by anybody who has an interest in hypnotherapy.
In the 2nd volume, Grinder and Bandler, with their co-author, Judith DeLozier, extend their modeling skills from verbal patterning in hypnosis to nonverbal communication. In integrating the verbal and nonverbal portions of hypnotic communication, the authors examine the legendary skill Dr. Erickson has in engaging in multilevel communication with patients.
In the first part, the authors offer a general model for hypnotic communication with transcript examples of its immediate application to hypnosis. In the second part, the authors present two previously unpublished transcripts of Dr. Erickson working in hypnosis with clients for therapeutic outcomes.
