Hypnotic Regression Therapy, or HRT, is a type of hypnotherapy in which, following the induction of a good trance state, specialized suggestions are given to guide the client in reviewing and emotionally reframing earlier experiences that have either caused or contributed to the client's current symptoms. HRT is considered one of the most valuable hypnotherapy techniques available today, yet it remains controversial, partly due to inadequate training of psychotherapists and hypnotherapists which has contributed to numerous cases of false memory syndrome.
This volume removes the fear of the dangers of mishandled hypnotic regression by presenting an organized , client-centered approach. You will learn when and how to use HRT effectively to help clients discover and release the causes of their problems and symptoms. Five phases of HRT are explored: preparation abreactions and release, regression techniques to discover the cause(s) subconscious relearning and concluding the session. There is also a chapter discussing the controversial topic of past life regressions, with potential explanations and ethical considerations. The authors also include case histories to illustrate the value of their client-centered approach to HRT.
