The rationale for the use of indirection will be presented. In this session you will learn and practice the construction of fundamental forms of indirection language. Participants will practice five forms of indirect suggestions and three forms of binds. A demonstration using these forms will illustrate the implementation of this set of language techniques for the induction and treatment process. The use of indirect suggestions in further treatment will be outlined.
