I found this book to be a great source of "what's inside the mind" and giving a different view of how alien abductions effect people. It was a very interesting read from the side of the author as well as patient with wonderful illustrations giving the reader another dimension which typically is not seen.
I found this book to be a great source of "what's inside the mind" and giving a different view of how alien abductions effect people. It was a very interesting read from the side of the author as well as patient with wonderful illustrations giving the reader another dimension which typically is not seen. In my thirty years of research into the UFO abduction phenomenon, my goal has been to expand the small group of competent therapists and investigators. Those efforts have been rewarded. In addition to David Jacobs, John Mack, I have also brought Yvonne Smith into this crucially important fraternity. CHOSEN presents a compelling, cross-section of her extensive research into the UFO abduction mystery. --Budd Hopkins (Pioneer UFO Abduction Researcher, Lecturer, Author)
The abduction experience is one of the most controversial and challenging aspects of the UFO phenomenon. We need more work from serious investigators like Yvonne Smith to cast light in the shadows of these distressing and sometime enlightening experiences. --Stan Friedman (Nuclear-Physicist, Researcher. Lecturer, Author)
I include Yvonne Smith in my publication of important UFO references, The UFO Magazine UFO Encyclopedia. I have seen her expertly conduct regressive hypnotherapy sessions and was impressed at observing her skillfully eliciting recollections from her subjects subconscious. CHOSEN dramatically conveys to the reader, in a in-depth never before revealed, trauma suffered by an abduction experience. --Wm. J. Birnes. J.D., Ph.D., (Producer, The History Channel UFO Hunters, Publisher, UFO Magazine)
About the Author
Yvonne Smith became concerned with victims of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder [PTSD] in 1990. Upon graduation from the California Hypnosis Motivation Institute as a certified hypnotherapist, she immediately began to work with PTSD victims. She observed through hypnotherapy what many of her subjects described as a pattern of alien abduction or other close encounter experiences. Since group therapy would assist in their trauma recovery, Yvonne founded CERO [Close Encounter Resource Organization] in 1991, which conducts monthly meetings to this day. In addition to maintaining personal contact with her subjects, she has traveled extensively, lecturing about the recollections of her subjects close encounters described during hypnotherapy at M.I.T. and other American universities and conferences as well as several international conferences from Europe to South America . In the 1990 s, Yvonne traveled extensively with her abduction research colleagues Budd Hopkins, David Jacobs, Ph.D., John Carpenter, and the late John Mack M.D. as a participant in a lecture series. Comfortable in front of cameras, Yvonne s many television appearances have included programs such as the Montel Williams Show, History Channel, MSNBC, The Discovery Channel, Encounters, Sightings, Rosanne Barr, The Joan Rivers Show and The Leeza Show. In addition, well known radio hosts George Noory, Art Bell, Paul Harvey, Dr. David Viscott, Jerry Pippen, Joe Montaldo, and Sweeps/Radio Ireland have all had Yvonne as their special guest. Yvonne has frequently been a consultant to producers, directors and actors for film and television programs. Having her residence turned into a television studio for many hours has been a common occurrence. In CHOSEN , Yvonne has taken the time to reveal explicit and dramatic transcripts of subjects describing, during hypnotherapy, their recollections of alien encounters and abductions.
