Modern research is presented in an engaging and positive way, alongside self-assessment questionnaires, case studies and practical do’s and don’ts.

ìBrief 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.î - 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 ìI 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 Iíve read.î - Dabney M. Ewin, MD, ABMH Past President of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis Board Certified Diplomate of the American Board of Medical Hypnosis ì[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 cliniciansí skills, but provide a straightforward and practical approach for the neophyte in hypnosis.î - William C. Wester, EdD, ABPP, ABPH Past President of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis ìThis is a valuable book for clinicians. It is highly practical, ëuser friendlyí, and explicates rapid treatment methods for the range of problems most commonly seen in our offices. I definitely recommend it.î - D. Corydon Hammond, PhD, ABPH Past President of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis Professor University of Utah School of Medicine ì...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.î - Daniel Brown, PhD, ABPH Professor, Harvard Medical School and Simmons School of Social Work, Boston, Massachusetts

This volume is the most practical clinical guide on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) yet available. It is designed to show how the ACT model and techniques apply to various disorders, settings, and delivery options with the goal of allowing researchers and clinicians to begin applying ACT wherever it seems to fit. The book is divided into three sections, with chapters demonstrating the effectiveness of using ACT in the treatment approach for a wide range of clinical problems. The first section describes the theory underlying Acceptance and Commitment Therapy as a treatment approach and the core intervention processes that encompass ACT. The second section presents ACT as it is applied to some typical behavioral disorders encountered by mental health and substance abuse practitioners. The last section examines ACT as it is used with a variety of other populations, problems, settings, and modes of delivery. This volume will be of great value to therapists, practitioners, and students who are interested in new developments in cognitive and behavior therapy.

Using a single treatment model that can be applied to every patient, this unique book is a valuable guide for assessing, identifying, and treating patients with acute and chronic pain in physical therapy practice. It teaches clinicians how to quickly recognize pain patterns and deal with pain using practical pain management techniques (psychosocial interventions, self-help methods) in combination with familiar musculoskeletal approaches (massage, exercise therapy, TENS). Underlying concepts of neurophysiology endocrine physiology, and psychology are explained to convey a greater understanding of pain science and its links to everyday practice. 'PAIN IN PRACTICE is a very readable user friendly book. it approaches the subject of pain from different perspectives with the overriding theme being releveance to clinical reasoning and thus treatment of patients...The book is well designed with the use of green shaded boxes to summarize or highlight important points. there is good use of patient scenarios to facilitate the linking of theory to practice and the many diagrams and flow charts support the text well.' The British Pain Society Newsletter, Spring 2006. Material is organized according to the hierarchy in the sensory nervous system, from familiar to the increasingly complex causes of pain. A single, overarching clinical reasoning model is presented that integrates psychological, neural, and mechanical knowledge, enabling therapists to assess and treat all patients using the same model. The book's rational approach to analyzing pain syndromes discards overly simplistic notions of pain as a mechanical phenomenon. A comprehensive review of outcome measures is provided, which serves as a convenient reference guide for evaluation and clinical practice. Text boxes highlight patient examples, exercises, and interesting background information. Relevant neurophysiology is discussed in a way that translates the information into practical application. Integrative approach to pain management empowers therapists to use familiar musculoskeletal methods in addition to psychosocial methods, enabling them to choose the most appropriate techniques from both areas.
