Michael Yapko, PhD

Michael Yapko, PhD is one of our best clinician/scientist/trainers, especially in both hypnosis and depression.   You’ll enjoy visiting his site’s interesting and useful entries, including his many publications and international teaching schedule.  The 5th edition of his integration of hypnosis and psychotherapy, especially in relation to CBT, is the clearest and best book I know for learning to use hypnosis in therapy with sophistication and grace.

The “elephant” paper below describes his fascinating work with the elephant keepers at  the San Diego Zoo and it’s application to psychotherapy.  The other article is a short overview of what Marriage & Family [= any], therapists need to know about hypnosis.

    Quite frankly, we don’t have enough psychotherapists listed in our directory to meet the demand, that’s why we’re reaching out to you.

    To help meet the demand of our web visitors, and remove any financial burden preventing you from listing your practice, we’ve removed the paywall.

    For us right now, it’s not about making a profit which is why for a limited time only, we are introducing FREE listings (NO CREDIT CARD REQUIRED) for any mental health service provider.

    Head over to LocalTherapistFinder.com right now to list your practice and/or services. You will never be charged for any clients you acquire through our website.
