“A practical guide to hypnotic techniques....Psychotherapists in training should find the book interesting and instructive.”


“Vivid case studies illustrate clinical techniques and make this most inviting reading.”

—J. Solis, Ph.D., Acapulco

“King and Citrenbaum may well be the Siskel and Ebert of the traditional pathology centered approach...Critical and controversial! However, King and Citrenbaum may just be right!”

—Cardwell C. Nuckols, Ph.D.

“Once again, the team of Citrenbaum and King has made an invaluable contribution to the professional literature in hypnotherapy, adding to their earlier works Irresistible Communication; 20 Modern Clinical Hypnosis for Habit Control. Their knowledge of the subject is immense, bolstered by many years of experience as psychologists who utilize hypnotherapy in their practices. The writing style is crisp, and the book is filled with illustrative case vignettes. They have managed to meld the topics of existentialism and hypnosis into a highly readable and interesting treatise, which should appeal to both students and practitioners of modern psychological hypnosis.”

—Lewis B. Morgan, Ph.D., Professor of Counseling and Human Relations, Villanova University

“The existential framework of King and Citrenbaum's latest book illuminates their dynamic approach to clinical hypnosis. This cogent elucidation of Milton Erickson's pioneering work, rich with case examples, will be welcomed by their hundreds of satisfied workshop participants. I was particularly impressed with their provocative critique of addictions theory which questions some of the basic 'truths' and points the clinician toward new treatment strategies.”

—William M. Cohen, M.D., Acting Director, Child Development Unit, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine

“As the Ericksonian field matures, it naturally encounters its ancestors. In this book, the world of hypnotherapy meets that of existentialism, emerging with a therapy that challenges long held assumptions while celebrating and deepening the power of personal choice.”

—Hillel Zeitlin, LCSW-C, Director, Maryland Institute for Ericksonian Hypnosis and Psychotherapy
