"Brief Cognitive Hypnosis gives a unique and refreshing presentation of various applications of hypnosis in clinical practice. Most importantly this book focuses on brief clinical interventions which are both effacacious and cost effective. The authors clearly describe a number of techniques for correcting dysfunctional behaviors such as irritating and/or self-destructive habits, ameliorating anxiety disorders, treating pain, and managing troublesome side effects of various medical treatments and procedures. I highly recommend this book as a valuable resource for all clinicians who are faced with helping their patients deal with such problems." - Edward J. Frischholz, PhD, Fellow and Past-President Divison 30 (Society for Psychological Hypnosis) American Psychological Association Past-Editor, American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis Fellow and Approved Consultant, American Society of Clinical Hypnosis "I wish I had said that. This book is clear, accurate, and explicated in a way that is indisputably better than any other texts on clinical hypnosis that I've read." - Dabney M. Ewin, MD, ABMH Past President of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis Board Certified Diplomate of the American Board of Medical Hypnosis "[This book] is a magical addition to the field of Clinical Hypnosis. Two distinguished Board Certified Clinicians with over sixty years of combined clinical experience have provided a delightful book that will not only add to the experienced clinicians' skills, but provide a straightforward and practical approach for the neophyte in hypnosis." - William C. Wester, EdD, ABPP, ABPH Past President of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis "This is a valuable book for clinicians. It is highly practical, 'user friendly', and explicates rapid treatment methods for the range of problems most commonly seen in our offices. I definitely recommend it." - D. Corydon Hammond, PhD, ABPH Past President of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis Professor University of Utah School of Medicine "...Zarren and Eimer integrate traditional psychodynamic models of the unconscious and symptom-formation with modern cognitive theory, the outcome of which is a new model for the change process in therapy. With lucid description of their clinical methods and rich case illustrations the authors show how the hypnotic trance, along with careful attention to the wording of the hypnotic scripts, enable the patient to open to the possibility of genuine change." - Daniel Brown, PhD, ABPH Professor, Harvard Medical School and Simmons School of Social Work, Boston, Massachusetts

In this book, Yapko not only demonstrates hypnosis is a viable and powerful approach to the treatment of depression but also confronts traditional criticism of its use head on. He first lays the groundwork for the book's dual focus, opening with a discussion of depressions. He then focuses on the historical perspective of depression and hypnosis as "forbidden friends," shedding new light on old myths about the use of hypnosis leading to hysteria, and even suicide. The result is a definition of hypnosis as a flexible and enlightened tool that offers precisely the multidimensionality that the problem demands.

What if you could lose weight easily--without diets, calorie counters, or complicated workouts? For the last twenty-five years, Dr. Ronald Glassman has helped thousands of his patients lose weight—from five pounds to 150 pounds—and keep it off. And he knows that the answer to overeating is not another diet or exercise regimen. The answer is to harness the power of your mind. The Alpha Solution presents his phenomenally successful scientific approach to easy, permanent weight loss—and proves that you literally can think yourself thin. For many of us, the result of years of poor eating, or eating for psychological and social reasons rather than nutritional ones, means that, subconsciously, we have been conditioned to eat the wrong foods in the wrong quantities. Despite our desire to be lean, strong, and healthy, we’re still subconsciously programmed to overeat, crave certain foods, and snack unnecessarily. This is why diets don’t work: Even if we know we should choose salad over pizza, our subconscious mind—ingrained with years of negative eating habits—undermines our efforts at every turn. The solution? Give your brain a new food blueprint by tapping into its “Alpha” state—the state right before you fall asleep in which your subconscious mind is open to suggestion and change. Through a series of simple questionnaires, Dr. Glassman guides you through the process of identifying the food issues you need to overcome and creating two personalized scripts tailored to your specific weight loss needs. You will then record the scripts on a tape or CD and listen to the recordings each night as you fall asleep. The changes are immediate and dramatic—you will begin reaching for healthy foods, keeping proper portion sizes, and turning down the fattening, sugary foods you used to crave. Within days, your eating habits will be transformed and you will begin melting away the pounds—seemingly without effort! Filled with success stories, The Alpha Solution is already changing the lives of people everywhere. Losing weight has never been this easy—and you will never have to “diet” again. What could be better than that? No counting calories No carb restriction No complex menus No special workouts Finally, a medically proven way to change your relationship with food forever--no diet or exercise required! This revolutionary book reveals how to literally think yourself thin: by simply and easily training your brain to automatically crave healthy foods in the proper portions. Whether you want to lose ten pounds or fifty, The Alpha Solution will quickly make diet struggles a thing of the past—and keep you fit and thin for life!
