A book too important to allow to go out of print. Using Hypnosis in Family Therapy is back on the shelves and is as relevant today as when it was written. Michele Ritterman's careful integration is innovative, practical, and can be folded into the working perspective of practitioners of every stripe.


Michele Ritterman


"A classic book filled with seminal ideas that continue to blossom in the is always-fertile field."
--Camilo Loriedo

"This is the most useful integration of ideas in hypnosis with family therapy, an enduring resource."
--Braulio Montalvo

"The New Hypnosis...lends itself very well to developing the skill of using 'family hypnosis' therapeutically. What the family has been doing ineffectively and counterproductively can be turned around for their benefit. The awareness of this aspect of family communication we owe to Ritterman...Ritterman shows the flexibility and marvelous creative potential of hypnosis with families."
--Daniel Araoz

"Ritterman's book is an important contribution to both family therapy and clinical hypnosis. Indeed, this is the first book to be devoted to family hypnotherapy. All students of family therapy will benefit greatly from this book, regardless of the general therapeutic model they use. They will realize, with suprise, perhaps, that the hypnotic techniques proposed by Ritterman can be incorporated into their own family therapy model, enriching it and making it more effective. Family therapists owe it to themselves to read this volume."
