As a pioneer in the use of hypnosis in treating depression, Dr. Michael Yapko brings readers the newest research data about overcoming depression as well as detailed examples of hypnotic strategies at work in the clinical context.
In Treating Depression with Hypnosis, Dr. Yapko describes how the popular approaches of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Strategic Interventions are integrated with Hypnosis in Treatment. He shares his unique protocols for “Hypnotically facilitating the ability to recognize and tolerate ambiguity”, “Hypnotically building expectancy” and more. He includes two session transcripts showing a detailed analysis of his work.
