"This is an excellent book that culls together a variety of clinical, theoretical, and research perspectives on the uses of hypnosis in treating depression. Michael Yapko deserves a great deal of praise for drawing together a group of authors from the Ericksonian, socio-cognitive, cognitive-behavioral, ego state, and other hypnotic traditions to write this highly informative and stimulating book.
