A Therapist’s Guide to Treating Bipolar Disorder with Hypnosis
By Meera Duncan
About the Book:
A new and effective psychotherapeutic treatment for persons affected by Bipolar I and Bipolar II Disorder is now available for therapists to put into practice. Clinical Hypnotherapist Meera Duncan has developed Environmental Stress Targeted Therapy (EVSTT) in response to her research, which shows that environmental stress is an additional component to causation of Bipolar Disorder. EVSTT utilizes hypnosis and has been proven to be highly successful with patients with this disorder.
Through the use of hypnotherapy, EVSTT targets and desensitizes the triggers and associations linked to manic, hypomanic, and depressive episodes. This treatment protocol reduces the severity of each subsequent episode, increases the maintenance phase between episodes, and shortens the duration of each subsequent episode.
Therapists and clients will achieve optimum success by following the five stages of treatment that incorporate a fluid combination of additional psychotherapeutic methods :
- Talk Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
- EVSTT Hypnosis for Triggers and Associations
- EVSTT Hypnosis for Trauma, Family Focused Therapy, Relapse Prevention Plan
This book is the first of its kind to focus on environmental stress as a new theory of causation, and highlights the safety and effectiveness of hypnosis and hypnotherapy on treating clients with Bipolar Disorder. Therapists and clients alike will be encouraged by the success of this treatment protocol that offers new hope to clients with this disorder to live happier healthier lives.
