We hope you enjoyed the second session of Michael Yapko’s Master Class Webinar, “Beyond Pills: Effective Psychotherapy with Depressive Clients.” Today’s session included a brief background on what hypnosis really is—and isn’t—and why it can be a beneficial method to help depressive clients.
We were given the opportunity to watch a clinical video presentation of Yapko with a real client who was in a major depression. “The Case of Mike” illustrates Yapko’s techniques with a client he’d never seen or spoken to before that meeting, and demonstrates the kind of experience such a client can have in a focused or hypnotic state.
Have you ever used hypnosis as part of your psychotherapy before? If so, what do you think works, or doesn’t work, well about it? What stood out for you today?
