9780393706253: Neuro-Hypnosis: Using Self-Hypnosis to Activate the Brain for Change (Norton Professional Books)

Understanding the neuroscience of self-hypnosis for more effective treatment of a variety of conditions.

Drawing from over 30 years of teaching, researching, and practicing hypnosis, the authors share systematic instructions, techniques, and exercises for finding your way into a hypnotic trance―or deepen your trance if you’ve already found it. With exercises specifically tailored to address a wide range of concerns, including stress, depression, substance abuse, anxiety, weight management, fears, and sports performance, this book is a comprehensive guide for anyone interested in hypnosis. The authors synthesize and integrate the major theories of hypnosis and provide an overview of the fundamental tools used in self-hypnosis, especially attention, unconscious processing, and suggestion.

For clinicians, they provide evidence and practical considerations that therapists need to incorporate hypnosis into their practice. All readers will benefit from the tips, techniques, and exercises throughout which demonstrate how hypnotic interventions can be tailored to each person. Readers will be inspired to practice at home using hypnotic suggestions that target their specific concerns. Deftly balancing theory and practice, Neuro-Hypnosis provides the tools you need to open yourself to self-hypnosis, experience the vast potential of your mind, and activate your brain for growth, development, and lasting change.

Review:

“[S]ignificantly improves our understanding of the field. . . . [N]ew explanatory outlooks on various scientific concepts such as attention, the unconscious, and pain. . . . [V]ery rich information on hypnosis and self-hypnosis and on numerous theoretical and clinical connections with them.”
- Journal of Canadian Academic Child Adolescent Psychiatry

“Illuminating, practical, and eminently readable. Neuro-Hypnosis updates selfhypnosis, beaming it into the 21st century. The authors admirably spotlight contemporary advances in the neurosciences; synergistically amalgamate existing theories about the nature of trance; and offer immediately applicable exercises. For the tyro and for the expert.”
- Jeffrey K. Zeig, PhD, Founder and Director, The Milton H. Erickson Foundation

“Here is a book that is waiting to be read by those with a curious mind and an appreciation for learning. Its contents are based on solid science and firsthand knowledge of hypnosis and therapy. The authors’ compassion is especially clear in the numerous exercises that guide the reader as he or she seeks to translate the scholarly information into a felt personal experience. In sum, this book is an excellent resource for anyone wishing to uncover his or her hidden potentials.”
- Dan Short, PhD, author, Transformational Relationships, and coauthor, Hope & Resiliency

“[F]ascinating...[U]seful to help the reader to regulate anxiety or fear as well as aggressive behaviors, control the consumption of food or drugs, and managing stress and pain.”
- Consuelo Casula, European Society of Hypnosis

Neuro-Hypnosis blends participatory self-exploration with clinical counseling in an elegant balance of information and art. The authors support self-reflection and practical applications, and their succinct, straightforward, and engaging style moves the reader along an experiential path integrating knowledge with understanding.”
- Roxanna Erickson-Klein RN, PhD, Board of Directors, The Milton H. Erickson Foundation
