Description

Jay Haley once said, 'The only reasonable excuse for adding another theory of hypnosis to the many that have been proposed is an entirely new approach to the problem.' In Of One Mind, Douglas Flemons demonstrates that he has an eminently reasonable excuse.

With the casual grace of an entrancing storyteller and the dry humor of an experienced therapist and teacher, he recasts the theory of hypnosis within a relational understanding of language, self, and mind. He then transports his ideas to the worlds of hypno-and brief therapies, offering fresh insights about how to connect with clients and help them change.
