Mindful Hypnotherapy: The Basics for Clinical Practice
From ayurveda to yoga, complementary and alternative medical practices are in common use today. All mental health practitioners need to understand how these treatments actually work—and how they might supplement or conflict with conventional therapies. This is the first book to explain for therapists the most popular forms of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).
Complementary and Alternative Medicine for Psychologists
This book introduces a new, evidence-based model of hypnotherapy called “hypnotic relaxation therapy” (HRT). Easily integrated with other therapeutic models or used alone, HRT has been proven effective in a wide variety of applications including pain management, anxiety reduction, smoking cessation, insomnia treatment, and treatment of post-menopausal symptoms. This new model advances the field of hypnotherapy by making relaxation an explicit part of hypnotherapy and measuring individual differences in hypnotizabillity with the introduction of a new measurement instrument, the Elkins Hypnotizability Scale (EHS). Additionally, it is the first book to integrate Cognitive-Experiential Self Theory with HRT.
