In Ericksonian Hypnotherapy for an Impulse Problem, Dr. Jeffrey K. Zeig demonstrates his approach to treating clients having problems with impulsive behavior. In this approach, the therapist creates experiences in therapy that increase clients' access to their hidden strengths that may be used to help reduce impulsive behavior. Hypnosis is used to heighten the client responsiveness and open up dormant resources. In this session, Dr. Zeig works with a 30-year-old woman with an impulsive spending problem to help her uncover resources she already possesses for resisting her financially harmful habit.
