Introduction

This essay will describe the benefit to put into practice a personalised induction, as well as how to create a script, in order to tailor a personalised induction. I will also show that it is not always possible to use a personal induction on a client. There are some points to take in to consideration when doing a personalised induction. Firstly, people are different in many ways. They have different likes and dislikes, cultural backgrounds and upbringings. These factors have provided us with different outlooks, values and perspectives. In order for the client to relax, a hypnotic induction must always have positive words and feelings, such as "you are more relaxed than you ever felt before". Negative words such as "the noise outside does not disturb you. It does not disturb you in any way", should never be used as it could produce the reverse effect. In order to have the best chance of success we need to do our best to achieve the most beneficial stat as possible. When communicating with other people it seems that we do so using language. This is not entirely true as research shows that words make up 7% of our communication, tone and volume 38% and our body language 55%. Generally in order to practice hypnosis the client will have to have their eyes closed. This is why the therapist has to be very careful on the words he uses. To be able to understand the client and to address them in the perfect way, the therapist will have to look at the modality, which is the "language of the minds". ...read more.

This is still true today. If the client sees the hypnotist as an authority figure, they may have greater confidence in the power of an induction. The heightened expectation alone increases the chance of success. This is an example of an authoritarian technique: "As you relax deeper and deeper you will respond to the suggestion I give you. YOU WILL NOW STOP SMOKING. YOU WILL NOW STOP SMOKING. This is your wish your desire and you will act on it now." In general the people who are the most responsive to this technique are those who have great respect for authority figures such as teachers, parents, community leaders and police officers. Scientifically oriented people will fit more into this category as opposed to those who are highly imaginative or creative. Repressed emotions are generally the symptoms related to this technique such as weight loss, smoking and low self esteem. For example obesity that started at a young age. Because the problem started at childhood the authoritarian technique is employed to take the patient back in time to see the problem, understand it and let go the need for the behaviour that compensates for it; therefore another authoritarian figure can help unlock the problem and eventually eliminate it. During the use of this technique a suggestion is given to the subject to assume responsibility and eliminate dependent behaviour. This is done during the induction by increasing the self-confidence of the subject and reprogramming independent behaviour. ...read more.

Conclusion

This is why a personal induction will always be better and more specific to the client's needs. The client carries the solution inside them. The therapist only needs to set it free. Page 3 Of course it is not always possible to do a personal induction especially in group sessions for weight loss, smoking and so on. In this case the hypnotic induction must be vaguer, give more freedom to the patients to use their own imaginations. For example: "You may like to close your eyes now to enjoy the experience more deeply... Or you may just like to let them close when they are ready..." This induction gives the client the choice when they want to close their eyes. The therapist can also use as well different suggestions on what the private place could be, like the beach, the mountain, by the river and so on; in this case the induction works on more of a broad basis in order to cure the whole group at the same time. In conclusion a personal induction will always be more effective in curing the client. However if there is no possibility for a personalised induction the therapist will need to give a more expansive session for the imagination of the clients to open. This may work as well as a personalised induction. This is all done so that the therapist can ask the right questions and to asses his client before starting any sessions even for group sessions. The client is like an open book, the only thing the therapist has to do is read it. We should take our lead from Milton. H. Erickson and pays more attention to detail. ...read more.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

4 star(s)

The writer could have explained why induction may be more challenging with groups than with individuals. The work around the 2 different styles of induction was generally clearly written - the differences were highlighted well. Perhaps the writer could have contrasted the 2 types of clients that each approach would work better with, eg. why would someone who was not very creative respond to the authoritarian approach and what might that mean for the success of the hypnosis?
There were a few grammatical errors which could be minimised by careful proof-reading.
