According to André Muller Weitzenhoffer, a researcher in the field of hypnosis, "the major weakness of Bandler and Grinder's linguistic analysis is that so much of it is built upon untested hypotheses and is supported by totally inadequate data."[28] Weitzenhoffer adds that Bandler and Grinder misuse formal logic and mathematics,[29] redefine or misunderstand terms from the linguistics lexicon (e.g., nominalization),[30] create a scientific façade by needlessly complicating Ericksonian concepts with unfounded claims,[31] make factual errors,[32] and disregard or confuse concepts central to the Ericksonian approach.[33]
It overhypes conversational hypnosis (to an extent). Although I’m a big believer in the power of conversational/covert hypnosis, I also think that The Power of Conversational Hypnosis has a tendency to overhype the system/methods it teaches somewhat. The power of being able to persuade and covertly hypnotise others is certainly immense, but it is not a silver bullet for every one of life’s problems. However, with the right mindset and careful application in selected situations, you can achieve some fantastic results. Just remember that conversational hypnosis needs to work in conjunction with other NLP-based strategies, such as increasing your self-confidence.
The real origin and essence of the hypnotic condition, is the induction of a habit of abstraction or mental concentration, in which, as in reverie or spontaneous abstraction, the powers of the mind are so much engrossed with a single idea or train of thought, as, for the nonce, to render the individual unconscious of, or indifferently conscious to, all other ideas, impressions, or trains of thought. The hypnotic sleep, therefore, is the very antithesis or opposite mental and physical condition to that which precedes and accompanies common sleep

In this special mental state, people feel uninhibited and relaxed. Presumably, this is because they tune out the worries and doubts that normally keep their actions in check. You might experience the same feeling while watching a movie: As you get engrossed in the plot, worries about your job, family, etc. fade away, until all you're thinking about is what's up on the screen.

A good general read to be fair however; the introduced material can definitely be improved for greater benefits. Suggestions to make it better: Firstly, Improve the overall organization of the book, i.e., use categorization and sub-categorization for each topic inside the book. For example, The Language of Hypnosis, that's the title but then comes under that so many items that should be labeled as 1..... 2. ...... 3. .... and under each number there should be something like: A. .... B. ..... C. .... and so on.. this would make it easier and more beneficial for the reader so he/ she can relate ideas coherently. This is the least to be done to a "Manual"
Following the French committee's findings, Dugald Stewart, an influential academic philosopher of the "Scottish School of Common Sense", encouraged physicians in his Elements of the Philosophy of the Human Mind (1818)[54] to salvage elements of Mesmerism by replacing the supernatural theory of "animal magnetism" with a new interpretation based upon "common sense" laws of physiology and psychology. Braid quotes the following passage from Stewart:[55]
Bovbjerg's secular critique of NLP is echoed in the conservative Christian perspective of the New Age as represented by Jeremiah (1995)[115] who argues that, "[t]he ′transformation′ recommended by the founders and leaders of these business seminars [such as NLP] has spiritual implications that a non-Christian or new believer may not recognise. The belief that human beings can change themselves by calling upon the power (or god) within or their own infinite human potential is a contradiction of the Christian view. The Bible says man is a sinner and is saved by God's grace alone."
Relaxation techniques are often integrated into other health care practices; they may be included in programs of cognitive behavioral therapy in pain clinics or occupational therapy in psychiatric units. Complementary therapists, including osteopaths and massage therapists, may include some relaxation techniques in their work. Some nurses use relaxation techniques in the acute care setting, such as to prepare patients for surgery, and in a few general practices, classes in relaxation, yoga, or tai chi are regularly available.

So far, so good. For people in the PHA group, brain activation measured by fMRI correlated with the failure to remember. But what if reduced activation is always found in such people regardless of whether they are remembering or forgetting? We can rule this possibility out because people in the PHA group showed reduced activation only when they (unsuccessfully) answered questions about the content of the movie, not when they (successfully) answered questions about the context of the movie. Indeed, for the context questions, they showed the same activation as people in the non-PHA group. Perhaps then, the reduced activation reflects complete forgetting of the information, not just temporary suppression? We can rule this possibility out also because, in a neat reversal, people in the PHA group showed normal activation—just as those in the non-PHA group did—as soon as the suggestion was cancelled.
Accreditation ensures a basic level of quality in the education you receive from an institution. It also ensures your degrees will be recognized for the true achievements they are. It is the job of an accreditation organization to review colleges, universities, and other institutions of higher education to guarantee quality and improvement efforts.
This course on conversational hypnotherapy is structured into sections to help you get a good grounding to build on by learning about hypnosis, about trance. Learning the main hypnosis theories and models and a brief history about hypnosis. Then there is a section on the different ways trance and hypnosis are induced, and it is from learning about these different ways people naturally enter trance which allows you to know how to induce trance or hypnosis in others in a wide range of different ways, and in a variety of settings.
I usually have 'unconscious' on my left as I talk to someone, and 'conscious' on my right, but as I wanted to hypnotise the other students in the room, especially the student off the right side of the screen I decided to have the location I talk to the 'unconscious' being the opposite side to usual so that I could direct suggestions and ideas to the students. (Watching closely you can see me hypnotising three separate times, once for the student in the chair, once towards the student off to the right of the screen and once to the rest of the group, the group and the other student were being hypnotised without knowing it was going to happen, whereas the student in the demonstration chair demonstrated and so is aware they were being hypnotised)

An approach loosely based on information theory uses a brain-as-computer model. In adaptive systems, feedback increases the signal-to-noise ratio, which may converge towards a steady state. Increasing the signal-to-noise ratio enables messages to be more clearly received. The hypnotist's object is to use techniques to reduce interference and increase the receptability of specific messages (suggestions).[182]
Many people mistakenly believe that hypnosis is a matter of faith. They think that if you don't believe in hypnosis it wont work. Usually these people will also think that they can not be hypnotized because they don't believe in it. They may have a strong critical factor in general terms but their rejection of the concept of hypnosis as a whole actually assist the conversational hypnotist.

According to André Muller Weitzenhoffer, a researcher in the field of hypnosis, "the major weakness of Bandler and Grinder's linguistic analysis is that so much of it is built upon untested hypotheses and is supported by totally inadequate data."[28] Weitzenhoffer adds that Bandler and Grinder misuse formal logic and mathematics,[29] redefine or misunderstand terms from the linguistics lexicon (e.g., nominalization),[30] create a scientific façade by needlessly complicating Ericksonian concepts with unfounded claims,[31] make factual errors,[32] and disregard or confuse concepts central to the Ericksonian approach.[33]

By the end of 1980, the collaboration between Bandler and Grinder ended.[22] On 25 September 1981, Bandler instituted a civil action against Grinder and his company, seeking injunctive relief and damages for Grinder's commercial activity in relation to NLP. On 29 October 1981, judgement was made in favor of Bandler.[116] As part of a settlement agreement Bandler granted to Grinder a limited 10-year license to conduct NLP seminars, offer certification in NLP and use the NLP name on the condition that royalties from the earnings of the seminars be paid to Bandler. In July 1996 and January 1997, Bandler instituted a further two civil actions against Grinder and his company, numerous other prominent figures in NLP and 200 further initially unnamed persons. Bandler alleged that Grinder had violated the terms of the settlement agreement reached in the initial case and had suffered commercial damage as a result of the allegedly illegal commercial activities of the defendants. Bandler sought from each defendant damages no less than US$10,000,000.00.[117][118] In February 2000, the Court found against Bandler, stating that "Bandler has misrepresented to the public, through his licensing agreement and promotional materials, that he is the exclusive owner of all intellectual property rights associated with NLP, and maintains the exclusive authority to determine membership in and certification in the Society of NLP."[119][120]
The term "hypnosis" comes from the ancient Greek word ύπνος hypnos, "sleep", and the suffix -ωσις -osis, or from ὑπνόω hypnoō, "put to sleep" (stem of aorist hypnōs-) and the suffix -is.[9][10] The words "hypnosis" and "hypnotism" both derive from the term "neuro-hypnotism" (nervous sleep), all of which were coined by Étienne Félix d'Henin de Cuvillers in 1820. These words were popularized in English by the Scottish surgeon James Braid (to whom they are sometimes wrongly attributed) around 1841. Braid based his practice on that developed by Franz Mesmer and his followers (which was called "Mesmerism" or "animal magnetism"), but differed in his theory as to how the procedure worked.
