Book Description

May 31, 2005 1904424600 978-1904424604
Why do so many clients experience inner conflicts that inhibit the successful attainment of important goals? Both counselors and hypnotherapists use techniques that help their clients change undesired habits or achieve personal and professional goals, yet, in spite of their best efforts, some clients still continue to experience unresolved inner conflicts that inhibit them from attaining their ideal empowerment. This book describes an elegant approach to reconciling the conflicting parts of a client's personality. Closely allied to ego state therapy and voice dialogue, parts therapy uses hypnosis to identify conflicting parts that are damaging the well being of clients. These parts are then directed to negotiate with each other through the therapist to bring about a resolution. Parts therapy continues to grow in popularity and is already used by many psychotherapists and psychologists who use hypnosis as an adjunct to their practices.Therapists who specialize in the use of hypnosis will find Hypnosis for Inner Conflict Resolution: Introducing Parts Therapy a most helpful technique to integrate into their practice.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Introductory Textbook of Parts Therapy January 4, 2009
Like ego state therapy, parts therapy "is based on the concept that our personality is composed of a number of various parts. Our personality parts are aspects of the subconscious" (Hunter, p. 1). Roy Hunter views ego state therapy as a variation of parts therapy. Both ego state therapy and parts therapy derive from the work of Paul Federn and John G. Watkins. Admittedly, both address the same phenomena known elsewhere as "subpersonalities" or what C. G. Jung called "complexes" or "fragmentary personalities" and described in 1935 as "autonomous groups of associations that have a tendency to move by themselves, to live their own life apart from our intentions." The differences between parts therapy and ego state therapy seem to be matters of emphasis more than essentials. Both are dealing with the same reality, but the former approach is geared more toward "lay hypnotherapists" (hypnosis professionals who do not necessarily have additional clinical training or credentials) while the latter is more clinically-oriented. In this excellent introductory textbook of parts therapy author Roy Hunter credits his late mentor and "twentieth century hypnosis pioneer" (p. ix) Charles Tebbets with borrowing parts therapy from Federn and evolving it into a client-centered approach. (I was unaware of Tebbets' or Hunter's work when previously I reviewed Gordon Emmerson's Ego State Therapy on

Hunter requires his students to read Emmerson's Ego State Therapy, and he cites that work several times in Hypnosis for Inner Conflict Resolution. Neither book is necessarily "better" than the other; rather each provides a strong complement to the other, enough so that one would do well to think of these books as forming a two-volume set. Each offers specific techniques not found in the other.

4.0 out of 5 stars Parts Therapy step-by-step April 10, 2010
Roy Hunter presents a therapeutic hypnotic technique that can be used for many problems. It works from the theory that the mind functions as if made up of parts that do the work for the subconscious mind. Accessing them directly for a logical discussion with them is the goal, utilizing mediation techniques like with family counseling or peacemaking or settling grievances between parties. It teaches a very gentle, logical, polite and effective method of communicating with many for the benefit of all.
The concept may seem far-fetched if you have not read or studied Ego states or Parts Therapy or hypnosis. Giving someone the idea that their mind has different personalities and directing communication to individual ones may seem potentially harmful. I've seen this concept abused and used to keep the patient coming in for regular visits for each part to communicate with the others and with the therapist having no endpoint but for income. The author is very careful NOT to perpetuate a dysfunctional mind but rather to integrate it, solve the problem and release the person quickly in a better condition than before. There are many variations of this technique but getting the basics and learning the high ethical standards from this learned author are highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roy Hunter Hits It Out of the Park April 20, 2013
Roy Hunter is a great writer. He makes complex ideas clear, easy, and simple for the budding hypnotherapist or for a seasoned parts worker. If you are a hypnotherapist, you will find a complete and comprehensive guide to parts therapy by a pioneer in that field. Always someone who gives credit where credit it due, Roy Hunter gives props to the other pioneers in the field, particularly Charles Tebbetts, his mentor (and the hypnotherapist that originally brought Parts Therapy to the hypnotic fore - as not all Parts Therapy is done in hypnosis).

Parts therapy is a tool that every hypnotherapist should have in their toolbox, and Hypnosis for Inner Conflict Resolution: Introducing Parts Therapy is a book that every hypnotherapist should have on their bookshelves to study and refer to constantly.

You should check out Roy Hunter's other books, as well. He is a leading teacher in the hypnotherapy world.

This is a masterful work that step by step details the authors frame work for working on integrating the in congruent parts of our inner life. It can be used by hypnotherapists, as well as counselors and laymen for gleaning principles. But like most of these type works you will get the most from it by experimenting with it on your self with the questions and naming of those inner parts and listening to their voices, needs, motivations and wisdom. I believe you would be most able to be healing to others with these principles after making personal application for integrating your own inner voices and parts that conflict and help them to better negotiate. If you imagine a counseling session of a family and the different needs and parts and you helping their learning to understand each other and work together you get the gist of this book only the family is in side of each individual person. I instantly found myself becoming aware of deeper parts of myself and the naming the parts, list of questions and negotiation ideas are excellent to promote dialog and release. It seems that life challenges us continually to the experiences that must struggle with what is wisdom and balance. It many times involves the integrating of what first appears to be opposites but really reveal themselves to be balancing halves that when listened to and gleaned from open up a healing middle pathway and journey being all that you are. On another note there is excellent principles for using hypnosis for smoking cessation and getting past stuck points of the conflicting motivations of our inner parts.
