The Case of Myra: Hypnosis as a Context for Self-Discovery shows Dr. Yapko’s use of strategically applied hypnoisis with a woman named Myra who is feeling trapped in a “depresssed lifesstyle” of passivity and isolation.
Myra reported that she was a prisoner of her own inertia, feeling immensely frustred, discouraged and defeated in her life. Maintaining a clear focus on identifying and develoing the skills and resources Myra will need to get out of that mindset, Dr. Yapko gently steers Myra away from limitations of the past to focus on the positive possibilities of the future. Myra is encouraged to be active in developing a new system for making better, more productive choices, and these new decision-making patterns are reinforced through metaphor and the use of humor.
This professionally recorded DVD features subtitles throughout, giving the viewer clear insight into the intentions underlying Dr. Yapko’s hypnotic suggestions. The DVD also includes a formal follow-up on Myra’s progress. Eight months later, Myra reports she has made many extraordinary changes, a testimonial to the effectiveness of this dynamic session. This is a superb teaching tool for those who want to learn some of the intracacies of Dr. Yapko’s hypnotic and strategic therapeutic approaches.
