Subliminal Therapy is a technique that utilizes hypnotic phenomena for therapeutic purpose without requiring a formal trance induction. The protocol is effective as a sole intervention or as an adjunct to other forms of treatment. In this volume, the reader is introduced to the concepts and applications of Subliminal Therapy and taught its protocol as well This includes establishing identifiable communication with the unconscious domain, uncovering influences that are causing current problems, and resolving those influences.The logically applied protocol of Subliminal Therapy engages unconscious process to uncover the causes of presenting problems, whether manifesting physically, emotionally, intellectually or behaviorally, and then to resolve that influence through re-framing and re-conditioning. The causes of psychogenic problems are usually not consciously recognized; only the resultant symptom - the disability - is apparent. Subliminal Therapy provides a practical, efficient and logical way to identify the cause, as well as a practical, efficient and logical way to resolve its influence. Although Subliminal Therapy may be new concept for professionals, it has been evolving over the past thirty years into a most efficient protocol. The technique has proved especially effective in the treatment of anxiety and the effects of early abuse such as sexual dysfunction, unresolved anger and psychogenic medical problems.
Are you troubled by anxiety, depression, chronic pain, or perhaps finding yourself addicted to something? This booklet introduces a method that makes it possible for you to uncover the roots of your discomfort, thereby opening the door of resolution.All people have mental abilities that exceed their conscious abilities. Subliminal Therapy is a technique that allows you to tap into unconscious abilities that all people have, and this booklet teaches you how to communicate with your own higher-level abilities in a rational, logical way. The concept of tapping into those higher-level abilities is introduced and expanded for use in identifying the causes of problems; accessing the related memories facilitates resolution of problems. When the causes of a problem are identified, they can be resolved, and its symptoms cease to exist. This is true whether the problem is emotionally driven (as in the case of anxiety, depression, addictions or behavior), or physically (as in the case of chronic pain, migraine headaches, asthma and GI problems).This innovative method has been successfully used in treating both physical and mental problems that are the consequence of experiences in life. By using this method to identify the actual cause of a problem, as opposed to your conscious opinion and beliefs about its cause, full resolution of the problem is likely.Moreover, the method is remarkably effective, with success being defined as full resolution of the problem, not just making things better. In the clinical setting, only three or four treatment sessions are typically required for resolution of a problem; nevertheless, use of the method for self-help has been shown to be of significant value to many people. When assistance is needed, trained therapists are now available in most countries in North America and Europe, and you may elect to use the computerized version of the method at www.yagerianmethod.com. For more detailed information, go to www.stii.us.Additionally, new perspectives and ways of thinking are offered regarding various personal concerns that have become the problems typically presented by patients for therapy. These essays often provide new insights that aid in resolving long-term issues related to that specific area. The topics include, pain and its management, the role of selfishness, sex, fear, guilt, bitterness, forgiving, grief, and perhaps of greatest importance, the concept of acceptance.
Based on decades of theory, research, and practice, this seminalbook presents a detailed and comprehensive review, evaluation, andintegration of the scientific and empirical research relevant toAaron T. Beck's cognitive theory and therapy of depression. Sinceits emergence in the early 1960s, Beck's cognitive perspective hasbecome one of the most influential and well-researchedpsychological theories of depression. Over 900 scientific andscholarly references are contained in the present volume, providingthe most current and exhaustive evaluation of the scientific statusof the cognitive theory of depression. Though the application of cognitive therapy has been welldocumented in the publication of treatment manuals, the cognitivetheory of depression has not been presented in a unified manneruntil the publication of this book. Coauthored by the father ofcognitive therapy, Scientific Foundations of Cognitive Theory andTherapy of Depression offers the most complete and authoritativeaccount of Beck's theory of depression since the publication ofDepression: Causes and Treatment in 1967. Through its elaborationof recent theoretical developments in cognitive theory and itsreview of contemporary cognitive-clinical research, the bookrepresents the current state of the art in cognitive approaches todepression. As a result of its critical examination ofcognitive-clinical research and experimental informationprocessing, the authors offer many insights into the futuredirection for research on the cognitive basis of depression. The first half of the book focuses on a presentation of theclinical phenomena of depression and the current version ofcognitive theory. After outlining important questions that havebeen raised with the diagnosis of depression, the book then tracesthe historical development of Beck's cognitive theory and therapythrough the 1960s and '70s. It presents the theoretical assumptionsof the model and offers a detailed account of the most currentversion of the cognitive formulation of depression. The second half of the book provides an in-depth analysis of theempirical status of the descriptive and vulnerability hypotheses ofthe cognitive model. Drawing on over three decades of research, thebook delves into the scientific basis of numerous hypothesesderived from cognitive theory, including negativity, exclusivity,content specificity, primacy, universality, severity/persistence,selective processing, schema activation, primal processing,stability, diathesis-stress, symptom specificity, and differentialtreatment responsiveness. "In 1967 the first detailed description of the cognitive theory ofdepression was published in Depression: Causes and Treatment by oneof us, Aaron T. Beck. The basic concepts of the theory laid out inthat volume still provide the foundation for the cognitive model 30years later. As well the first systematic investigations of thetheory described in the 1967 volume contributed to a paradigmaticshift in theory, research, and treatment of depression thatresulted in a very vigorous and widespread research initiative onthe cognitive basis of depression. The present book is intended toprovide a comprehensive and critical update of the developments incognitive theory and research on depression that have occurredsince the initial publication in the 1960s."--David A. Clark, fromthe Preface.
Everybody has some character trait he or she would like to change, and there are many techniques available to facilitate these changes. Unfortunately, many of them are either impractical or expensive—or both! Most people are somewhat familiar with hypnosis and subliminal technology but are reluctant to use them as serious self-help tools. In large part this is due to the fact that they’ve been mired in mystique, urban legend, and disinformation. The truth is that both self-hypnosis and subliminal communication are backed by extensive research that demonstrates their efficacy. More important, once learned, they can be customized for any situation and used almost anytime and anywhere. Join Eldon Taylor on your own self-improvement exploration using the tools in this book and on the accompanying audio download. Experience hypnosis and subliminal patterning for yourself!

The author spent over 10 years responsibly, ethically, and scientifically investigating the efficacy of various subliminal procedures. This book comprehensively reviews the subliminal concept (particularly in the auditory modality), explores the technical details of preparing subliminal stimuli, presents the research on the effects of subliminal materials on emotions and behavior in clinical populations, reviews the research methodology required for ethically applying subliminal technology, and discusses the exciting possibilities for using subliminal procedures to enhance the efficacy of more traditional treatment modalities.
This is the first major text designed to help professionals and students evaluate the merits of popular yet controversial practices in clinical psychology, differentiating those that can stand up to the rigors of science from those that cannot. Leading researchers review widely used therapies for alcoholism, infantile autism, ADHD, and posttraumatic stress disorder; herbal remedies for depression and anxiety; suggestive techniques for memory recovery; and self-help models. Other topics covered include issues surrounding psychological expert testimony, the uses of projective assessment techniques, and unanswered questions about dissociative identity disorder. Providing knowledge to guide truly accountable mental health practice, the volume also imparts critical skills for designing and evaluating psychological research programs. It is ideal for use in advanced undergraduate- and graduate-level courses in clinical psychology, psychotherapy, and evidence-based practice.
Complementary Headache Therapy critically examines 15 clinically tested treatments. It highlights the few that did well in headache trials (biofeedback, relaxation training, cognitive therapy) or at least held their own (acupuncture, chiropractic, magnesium, riboflavin, analgesic withdrawal). And it notes the many such as aromatherapy, massage, magnets, and reflexology that have generated little or no headache research. It will guide practitioners and consumers to the best in complementary and alternative medicine.

From the bestselling author of The Drunkard’s Walk and coauthor of The Grand Design (with Stephen Hawking), a startling and eye-opening examination of how the unconscious mind shapes our experience of the world. Winner of the 2013 PEN/E.O. Wilson Literary Science Writing Award Over the past two decades of neurological research, it has become increasingly clear that the way we experience the world--our perception, behavior, memory, and social judgment--is largely driven by the mind's subliminal processes and not by the conscious ones, as we have long believed. In Subliminal, Leonard Mlodinow employs his signature concise, accessible explanations of the most obscure scientific subjects to unravel the complexities of the subliminal mind. In the process he shows the many ways it influences how we misperceive our relationships with family, friends, and business associates; how we misunderstand the reasons for our investment decisions; and how we misremember important events--along the way, changing our view of ourselves and the world around us.
Torture and Moral Integrity tackles a concrete moral problem that has been hotly debated by governments, scholars, and the media: the morality of interrogational torture. It discusses multiple types of torture with great philosophical acuity and seeks to explain why interrogational torture and other types of torture are always and everywhere morally wrong. At the same time, it rigorously plumbs the general structure of morality and the intricacies of moral conflicts and probes some of the chief grounds for the moral illegitimacy of various modes of conduct. It defends a deontological conception of morality against the subtle critiques that have been mounted over the past few decades by proponents of consequentialism. Kramer's recommendations concerning the legal consequences of the perpetration of torture by public officials or private individuals, for example, are based squarely on his more abstract accounts of the nature of torture and the nature of morality. His philosophical reflections on the structure of morality are a vital background for his approach to torture, and his approach to torture is a natural outgrowth of those philosophical reflections.
This book has a question mark in its title because it aims to invite inquiry. The possibility of integrating psychoanalytic and behavior therapies has been controversial since it was first proposed about 50 years ago, and this has elicited a wide range of reactions from both psychologists and psy chiatrists. It was with the hope of fostering constructive interchange that this book was conceived. We wanted to spark further thinking about the question in the title in a way that could lead either to conceptual and clinical progress toward an integrated approach or to a clearer sense of the obstacles involved. In either case, we hoped that it would present a healthy challenge to current forms of psychoanalytic and behavior therapies. The present volume was stimulated by the appearance in 1977 of Paul Wachtel's book Psychoanalysis and Behavior Therapy: Toward an Integration. Al though many reviewers did not necessarily agree with Wachtel's proposals for integration, they (and we) were highly laudatory of his attempt. After reading the book, Hal Arkowitz organized a symposium on integration that took place in Chicago at the November 1978 meeting of the Association for the Advancement of Behavior Therapy. The symposium included Cyril Franks, Merton Gill, Hans Strupp, Paul Wachtel, and Michael Merbaum as moderator. Arkowitz subsequently proposed to edit a book on integra tion and invited Messer to be coeditor.
Subliminal persuasion while the world drowns. As an ad copywriter, Frank earns his living manipulating people's opinions. Hired to use his talent help a politician he hates win a presidential election, can his own mind be rebeling? His true love calls him to reclaim his own consciousness. A near-future, dystopian science fiction short story about: Global warming/climate change Capitalism Consumerism Subliminal persuasion and influence, especially in advertising How explicit images in advertizing haunt and influence our imaginations Environmental physical pollution Mental/emotional pollution The vast amounts of packaging and other waste our society throws away Political campaign advertising If you've ever felt frustrated over the refusal of people to lower their materialistic lifestyles for the good of the planet . . . Or if you've ever felt frustrated because no matter how hard you work, how much money you make, you're still not happy . . . Or if you've ever felt your mind influenced against your will by advertising . . . You can relate to Mirror Maze. Warning: I've used a sort of semi-stream of consciousness style to convey the emotional collapse of the main character. As an advertising copywriter, he writes the ads, but is even more influenced by their words and images than the average person. Despite being one of the manipulators, he's as caught in the 'mirror maze' of our modern narcissistic society as any of us.
