The Courage to Love: A Demonstration of Self-Relation Therapy
A woman remarries in her 50’s after her first husband has died. The second husband is not the man anyone in her family (esp. her mother) wanted her to marry. Gilligan works to connect the little girl part of the client with the adult part of her. He uses an interesting metaphor about Helen Keller and Annie Sullivan to talk about the vibrational quality of the inner child

Treating Anxiety Lankton, Carol
Examining the Resolution of Anxiety and Pain Problems Using Hypnosis Lankton, Steven
Generalizing Change for Profound Work in a Single Session
Lankton’s style is playful. He works with a high functioning woman who is unable to ask for support or help. He uses metaphors and takes her into a very relaxed state. He has her push this feeling of relaxation out into her future from a central core.

Utilizing Hypnosis in Psychotherapy
A man talks about wanting to write his dissertation without struggle—he has been procrastinating. He has a fear of responsibility and boredom. Barber asks many relevant questions: “What’s happening now?” “I wonder what you are thinking right now.” In trance, he leads the client into the woods where there are 2 paths which divide. He talks about the different experiences the client will have, creates curiosity as well as a double-bind to help the client move forward.
Barber, Joseph
Hypnotic Alteration of Pain Perception (Highly recommended)
Illustrates the power of the mind to create a change in how one feels. Rates both the level of pain as well as how much the pain is bothersome. Utilizes the discomfort as part of the induction. Posthypnotic suggestion for amnesia of the work done in the trance.

A Quick Utilization Approach to Hypnotic Inductions Rosen, Sidney
The Panic Chair Rosen, Sidney
A Fail-Safe Double-Bind Approach to Hypnotic Inductions
Asking questions is an important way to get a person to be inwardly focused. Rossi listens and watches carefully. He utilizes whatever he sees and hears. When the client talks about resistance, he works with it. With one client, he does a double-bind with her by having her hold her hands a small distance apart and having her feel the magnetic force between them. He says if the unconscious want to say YES, the hands will come together, if NO, they will separate. If the hands do not move, he says: “How wonderful that the hands aren’t moving. Are those hands still, so you can go more deeply into the unconscious?”

A Sensitive, Fail-Safe Approach to Hypnosis Rossi, Ernest
Conversational Introduction to Trance
The VHS quality is not good–the tape breaks up in one part for 30 seconds. However, the tape is interesting and recommended. Kay does a conversational induction with someone she already knows. She tells a story about how a tree grows in the woods and we can see the subject clearly go into trance with eyes open, then closed, then open just from listening to the story. The client is a hypnotist himself and this is particularly interesting. Kay’s story is general and there is very little that is specific to the client, but at the end of the session he comments on the fact that “she knows him so well” based on the induction. He is not aware that she is being general and finds the induction to be therapeutic. Kay has a powerful presence and excellent delivery.
