   schema:description "The purpose of this boldly honest book is twofold: First, it demonstrates that hypnosis can be a viable and effective approach to the treatment of depression. Second, it confronts the traditional criticism of its use head-on. By choosing to embrace rather than to ignore the opportunity for debate, Michael Yapko explodes some of the many myths about hypnosis and depression, replacing them with a compelling, well-rounded - and productive - discussion. Beginning with a fresh look at what is commonly referred to as clinical depression, Dr. Yapko unhesitatingly removes the stakes put down by the DSM-III-R to extend the definition from "mood disorder" to a lifestyle permeating all dimensions of human experience. In fact, he writes of depressions, rather than of major depression as a singular entity, to highlight this point from the start. A pivotal chapter entitled "Forbidden Friends" presents a clear refutation of the historical picture of hypnosis as an insidious negative approach to the treatment of depression that might actually trigger deeper depression or even suicide. Dr. Yapko clarifies how this unfortunate perspective evolved, and more important, he points the direction toward a greater appreciation of hypnosis as the powerful, respectful, interventive approach it can be. Broadly, Dr. Yapko defines clinical depression as a subjective disorder, which features an intricate system of negative projections about life and self. Given this understanding, hypnosis, as a focused form of influential communication and experiential learning, is well suited to changing for the better this internally designed negative reality. In his Foreword Stephen Gilligan writes: "Hypnotic experience varies with context ...?it? may be helpful, harmful, or irrelevant, depending on how, where, when, and by whom it is being used." Thus, this book not only offers an enlightening exploration of "why," it lays out how, where, when, and by whom. It provides clear and specific examples of appropriate interventions that can move the client toward well-being, including receiving metaphors that illustrate the inevitability of change; identifying personal resources evident in past transitions; and integrating positive expectancy. Hypnosis and the Treatment of Depressions complements Dr. Yapko's earlier works on hypnosis, depression, and brief, directive therapy approaches. Thought-provoking yet practical, complex yet accessible, it is an incomparable skill-building resource for generating the specific learnings necessary to help clients overcome depression as quickly as possible and to avoid future depressive relapses."@en ;
