This book gives mental health practitioners a complete, fully-scripted, ready-to-use weight reduction program that addresses the near epidemic problem of obesity in adults. Includes complete step-by-step, easy-to-follow instructions for managing, conducting (as well as marketing) a unique program to add a new, valuable and profitable service to an existing private practice. The program is based on actual clinical experience and published research on the efficacy of hypnotherapy as a viable tool in weight management. The book covers the practitioner's preparation: the program background, relevant research, prerequisite skills, training and knowledge. In addition it explains how to screen clients, create office forms, and deal with ethical, safety, and marketing considerations. Also included is a CD which contains a reproducible client workbook for multiple uses.
