CORE Hypnosis
A Compassion Informed Therapy
by Dr. Harry Stefanakis

CORE Hypnosis introduces a compassion-informed model for clinical hypnosis that is informative for both beginners and seasoned health professionals. The author’s accumulated wisdom is integrated with the latest research on the embodied-relational mind creating an innovative exploration of clinical hypnosis. Readers will enjoy and benefit from the many real-life cases that demonstrate the movement of change through the four parts of CORE: centering, opening, releasing, and extending. The book travels through the standard topics of clinical hypnosis, while expanding the typical discourse with compassion-focused ideas. CORE Hypnosis provides a compelling case for the use of compassion-informed clinical hypnosis across a broad range of presenting issues.

"Written with sensitivity, care, and gentleness, CORE Hypnosis is a creative, compassion informed model for utilizing the skills of clinical hypnosis. This book is a well referenced up to date integration of embodied mind, relational science, and therapeutic principles. It can easily be the foundation for teaching clinical hypnosis, with many examples of how to identify strategies for your adult clients. A great addition to your clinical library." —Dr. Julie Linden, Psychologist, Past President: International Society of Hypnosis and American Society of Clinical Hypnosis.
