Suggestions of abuse : true and false memories of childhood sexual trauma by Michael D Yapko( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and German and held by 1,201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Allegations of sexual abuse, particularly those based on the recovery of supposed "repressed memories" of abuse, have reached incredible proportions. The result has been devastation for many. Why is this happening?" "Alarmed by the statistics, Dr. Michael Yapko - a clinical psychologist with nearly two decades of experience in working with individuals and families involved with issues of abuse - decided to investigate. This timely book reveals how and why a startling number of mental health professionals, ignorant about suggestibility and the workings of memory, are unwittingly leading their patients to believe that they are victims of sexual abuse that has been entirely repressed. In plain language, Dr. Yapko explains what we know - and don't know - about memory, repression, and suggestibility. He also offers sensitive, realistic advice for individuals and families whose lives have been damaged by questionable accusations, and for those who suspect they have been falsely led to believe they were abused." "Dr. Yapko's revelatory and compassionate book - the first to address seriously the complex and volatile subject of false memory and sexual abuse - offers invaluable insight and guidance to anyone who has been affected, personally or professionally, by this painful issue."--Jacket

Hypnosis and the treatment of depressions : strategies for change by Michael D Yapko( Book )

12 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this boldly honest book is twofold: First, it demonstrates that hypnosis can be a viable and effective approach to the treatment of depression. Second, it confronts the traditional criticism of its use head-on. By choosing to embrace rather than to ignore the opportunity for debate, Michael Yapko explodes some of the many myths about hypnosis and depression, replacing them with a compelling, well-rounded - and productive - discussion. Beginning with a fresh look at what is commonly referred to as clinical depression, Dr. Yapko unhesitatingly removes the stakes put down by the DSM-III-R to extend the definition from "mood disorder" to a lifestyle permeating all dimensions of human experience. In fact, he writes of depressions, rather than of major depression as a singular entity, to highlight this point from the start. A pivotal chapter entitled "Forbidden Friends" presents a clear refutation of the historical picture of hypnosis as an insidious negative approach to the treatment of depression that might actually trigger deeper depression or even suicide. Dr. Yapko clarifies how this unfortunate perspective evolved, and more important, he points the direction toward a greater appreciation of hypnosis as the powerful, respectful, interventive approach it can be. Broadly, Dr. Yapko defines clinical depression as a subjective disorder, which features an intricate system of negative projections about life and self. Given this understanding, hypnosis, as a focused form of influential communication and experiential learning, is well suited to changing for the better this internally designed negative reality. In his Foreword Stephen Gilligan writes: "Hypnotic experience varies with context ...?it? may be helpful, harmful, or irrelevant, depending on how, where, when, and by whom it is being used." Thus, this book not only offers an enlightening exploration of "why," it lays out how, where, when, and by whom. It provides clear and specific examples of appropriate interventions that can move the client toward well-being, including receiving metaphors that illustrate the inevitability of change; identifying personal resources evident in past transitions; and integrating positive expectancy. Hypnosis and the Treatment of Depressions complements Dr. Yapko's earlier works on hypnosis, depression, and brief, directive therapy approaches. Thought-provoking yet practical, complex yet accessible, it is an incomparable skill-building resource for generating the specific learnings necessary to help clients overcome depression as quickly as possible and to avoid future depressive relapses

Memory, suggestion and abuse( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With regard to memory, the human brain functions neither like a computer nor a video camera. Memories, says Dr. Michael D Yapko, are more a function of reconstruction than reproduction. Many factors affect memory, and detailed memories, accompanied by strong emotions, can readily be obtained through hypnotic suggestion --even when such memories have no basis in fact. Dr. Yapko reviews the psychotherapeutic interactions that often lead to a diagnosis of childhood sexual abuse and enumerates various therapeutic pitfalls. Michael Yapko, Ph. D., is a clinical psychologist and author of Trancework and Suggestions of Abuse: True and False Memories of Childhood Sexual Trauma

Depression is contagious! : the implications of relationships on effective treatment( Visual )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Watch this seminar recording and learn how our social lives directly shape our brain chemistry and powerfully affect the way we think and feel. Our relationships can depress us and they can heal us. The cutting edge of rapidly expanding scientific evidence points to social life experience on understanding and treating depression. The treatment approach you will learn from this seminar is rooted in neuroscience especially neuroplasticity and the impact relationships have on the brain. Dr. Yapko's recent books, Depression is Contagious and Hypnosis and Treating Depression break new ground and challenge much of the conventional wisdom therapists typically hold about depression and its treatment. The pharmaceutical industry and the medical establishment successfully promote the idea that depression is a disease needing medication. The scientific evidence, at best, lends only weak support to this notion. The serotonin hypothesis has been all but disproven, and the sciences of genetics, epigenetics and interpersonal neuroscience have affirmed the power of relationships to change brains as well as lives. There is much more hard evidence pointing to social factors leading to the large and still growing population of depression sufferers in the world than any presumed biochemical cause
