What is the Most Effective Hypnotic Induction?
+michael ellner has just posted a quotation from MIlton Erickson regarding the most effective form of hypnosis: "It isn't the amount of time. It isn't the theory of psychotherapy. It’s how you reach the personality by saying the right thing at the right time." This jibes with Steve Lynn's summary of our induction chapter in the American Psychological Association's Handbook of Clinical Hypnosis, which concludes that the most important consideration is the personality and individual characteristics of each individual we encounter, If you say the right thing at the right time, there's practically no limit to what you can accomplish!
