Using hypnotic techniques to facilitate successful therapy. Over-reactive clients are those who experience a series of conflicted interpersonal relationships, anxiety, stress. psychosomatic illnesses, and an inability to self soothe, among other symptoms. For these clients, talk-therapy alone may be inadequate for providing long-lasting behavioral changes that manage their highly reactive emotions. Since the stress reaction is triggered so quickly and powerfully, it becomes incumbent upon the therapist to teach clients to intervene with rapidly induced calm states, and to give clients the tools to do so not just in the therapist's office, but also as they go about their daily lives. Dr. Daitch draws upon years of experience as a teacher and practitioner of hypnosis to compile a variety of quick, easy-to-learn techniques that help over-reactive clients learn to do just this. Mindfulness, switching channels, parts of self, age regression, juxtaposition of two feelings are just some of the tools covered. Implementing the various interventions in therapeutic sessions is explained, with a focus on three main areas of clinical practice: anxiety disorders, couples in conflict, and other interpersonal relationships.
