Publisher's Summary

The complete audiobook series for Elman Hypnotherapy: Beyond the Basics, includes all seven books of this series stating with the basics of the Elman Technique and finishing with advanced techniques and applications as discussed by Dave Elman in his courses. Included is material on waking hypnosis and hypnosis related to the sleep state. As the subtitle states, this series goes far beyond the basic covered in most courses on his methods. I also discuss the basic concepts behind Elman's methods so that a clinical practitioner can easily customize sessions to best fit a particular subject.

Long forgotten and often overshadowed by interest in Milton Erickson’s contribution to hypnotherapy, the work and ideas of his chief rival Dave Elman should not be overlooked. Elman was a former stage hypnotist, radio personality, and worked with the Office of Strategic Services (the predecessor of the CIA) during World War II. He was approached by members of the medical and dental profession, who had an interest in hypnosis but were dissatisfied with what they had learned from Erickson. While many in the hypnotherapy arena regularly shun any association with stage hypnotists, looking at why hypnosis-as-entertainment works and how it may be applied to clinical and performance-related applications is a worthy study. 

Although Elman was a close associate of Sigmund Freud’s son and very much influenced by Freud’s psychoanalytic theories, his core concepts have even more relevance when studied and practiced in light of many more recent neurological discoveries. His three-minute technique is a starting point in understanding the elegance of his thoughts and must be mastered by anyone who claims to practice hypnotherapy. This series takes the listener from the three-minute technique, to a one-minute technique and several techniques that will get the same results instantly with little ritual involved.

Good books.. but

The contents of the books is really good, well written and very understandable. But I find the way it’s read distracting from the material being presented. It kinda sounds like each word was recorded separately then pasted together as needed, no sense of flow in the reading

Great resource for the working hypnotherapist

I appreciated the multi-book combination that focused on specifics in different areas of the Elman Process. The author does a nice job of providing history, explanations, philosophy, techniques demonstrations. Its a great resource.
