Doctors Grodner and Reid present the first professional book that attempts to permanently change health behaviors using Ericksonian Hypnotherapy, a technique developed by the late psychiatrist Milton H. Erickson. The authors set forth one of the most innovative and effective solutions to health behaviour change.
