IC11 Fundamentals of Hypnosis 03 - What Makes for a Good Induction? - Michael Yapko

The hypnotic induction is the vehicle for facilitating the qualities of dissociation that characterize hypnotic experience: selective attention, detachment, multiple-level processing, non-volitional responses, and so forth. In some ways, the induction used matters very little and in other ways matters a lot. In this workshop, we'll explore and practice with a variety of induction processes ranging from structured to conversational.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe the role of the induction process in facilitating hypnotic experience.
  2. List and describe a variety of induction procedures.
