The Anatomy of Experiential Impact is the second volume of the series, and can be read independently of the other books in the series. The first volume, The Induction of Hypnosis (2014), presented Dr. Zeig’s model of hypnosis. The third, Psychoaerobics (2015), presented an experiential method of therapist development. In this book, you will encounter a model of brief therapy that can be applied independent of your preferred model of therapy. Change in therapy is best elicited by the experiences people live, not the information they receive. Hypnosis is fundamentally an experiential method, the imperative of which is, “By living this experience, you can reclaim your ability to change or cope adequately.” The Anatomy of Experiential Impact Through Ericksonian Psychotherapy promotes experiential methods that are derived from a hypnotic orientation, offering a stepwise plan for creating an experientially based brief therapy.
