Yapko, a clinical psychologist, explains how guided mindfulness meditation works in reducing stress, pain, anxiety and other health concerns. Hypnosis can effectively induce a person, through the power of suggestion, to change a behavior. Methods used to bring about hypnosis, such as authoritarian or permissive, how to dissociate, and what it is to be mindful while hypnotized are just a few of the areas touched on. This book is a useful guide for clinicians, as well as for anyone wanting to gain a better understanding of how hypnosis and meditation work together.
