This book integrates cognitive therapy with hypnotherapy and provides principles and illustrations of hypnotic routines that can be used in changing cognitive self-statements, cognitive processing distortions, and tacit cognitive structures. It extends the imagery work previously used in cognitive therapy into a complete and comprehensive hypnotherapeutic approach to help people change negative and self-defeating cognitions into more positive and adaptive ones. Dr. Dowd demonstrates the use of cognitive hypnotherapy in treating various disorders, in reconstructing memories, and in helping normally healthy individuals overcome blocks to more effective performance.

Industry Reviews

This is an excellent and balanced overview of theories and techniques of hypnotherapy, with special emphasis on their relevance to contemporary forms of cognitive therapy. A respected authority and scholar on this topic, Dowd also demonstrates his clinical acumen in describing when and how hypnotic techniques can be useful. I highly recommend this book.--Michael J. Mahoney, Ph.D., University of North Texas
