From the Publisher"The scope of Advanced Hypnotherapy is both wide and deep. These leaders in the fields of hypnosis research and psychotherapy write in a lucid, engaging style. The book advances our knowledge of hypnosis in psychotherapy in a fashion that will fascinate both new psychotherapists and experienced clinicians. This is one hypnodynamic book." - David Spiegel, Stanford University School of Medicine, USA, co-author of Trance and Treatment: Clinical Uses of Hypnosis
"Well beyond protocols and manualized treatments, this is book for experienced psychotherapists and those who wish to improve treatment outcome by developing additional avenues of access to people. These well-known senior clinician-researchers generously unite clinical material and laboratory findings with classical and current theory to remind us that it is the person with the illness, not a disorder, whom we contract to help." - Nicholas A. Covino, president, Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology, USA
"Advanced Hypnotherapy: Hypnodynamic Techniques is a book I picture residing in many psychologists' library. For some, it remarries psychoanalysis with hypnosis. For others, it advances their psychoanalytic case conceptualization abilites. For more, it is a useful tool to expand their scope of clinical practice. Watkins and Barabasz offer lucid instructions on the integration of hypnosis into psychodynamic treatment. They provide clear information on the psychogenic and biological underpinnings of hypnosis, as well as procedural instructions for the practice of hypnosis. The procedural information is clearly written and supported with numerous clinical case examples. The aggregate of the well-written book provides a wealth of useful practice information."
