Doody ReviewsReviewer: Eden B Lesser, MA (Abbott Laboratories)
Description: Based on the hypnotherapy of Charles Tebbetts, this book by his student, Roy Hunter, also an expert in the field of hypnosis, is an effort to explain the fundamentals of hypnosis to both practitioners and novices. Very few books cover the subject of hypnosis and its applications.
Purpose: The author provides readers a full account of hypnosis, starting with the history of hypnosis and moving on to an explanation of the technical aspects.
Audience: This book should appeal to a wide variety of readers, both clinical professionals and those who are just beginning their study of hypnosis. While it could be used by someone completely unfamiliar with hypnotic techniques, the detailed chapters on the various stages of hypnotic states make it essential for those wishing to broaden their ability to use hypnosis.
Features: In fact, that is what is unique about this book — it can be used by novices or those unfamiliar with hypnotic techniques, but it is detailed enough for those currently using hypnosis in their day-to-day practice. Readers will enjoy the history of hypnosis as well as the glossary, which includes common hypnosis terms and abbreviations. Excellent technical chapters cover inductions, deepening the hypnotic state, and testing during hypnosis.
Assessment: This is truly a great addition to the field of hypnosis. Highly recommended!
