In this era of instant gratification, soundbites, and technology driven attention deficits, five minutes is an eternity. Hypnosis has been considered time intensive, but does it have to be? This fascinating series of nine actual demonstrations by Dr. Filo includes some verbal, non-verbal, and physical inductions. He demonstrates some of the most well-known rapid hypnotic inductions including:

  • Handshake Techniques
  • Elman’s Techniques
  • Barrett’s Instant Meditation
  • Filo’s Induction
  • Rausch’s Induction
  • Criss Angel’s Induction
  • Bryan’s Oriental Pressure Point Induction
  • The Turbo Induction
  • and Wark’s Alert Induction.

Careful observation will reveal that each induction contains the basics of all professional hypnotic interactions – rapport, focusing, deepening, re-alerting and debriefing. Since these inductions are ultimately for clinical use, appropriate generic suggestions are also demonstrated.

In addition, a real world dental application is demonstrated showing the replacement of a filling without any local anaesthetic. The patient is a dental-phobic police officer.

Clinical contexts and knowledge of truly rapid induction techniques are a must for hands-on clinicians – physicians, dentists, surgeons, first responders, as well as for mental health practitioners who must accede to the reality of brief therapy. This DVD demonstrates these rapid and instantaneous inductions covering the entire history of hypnosis. Creative, insightful clinicians can easily adapt these for use in their clinical settings. If you want to do more with less, then this DVD will give you the foundations.

Also included is a 16-page Learning Guide explaining each of the demonstrations.
