Reviews - What do customers think about Ericksonian Hypnosis Cards-Salad: do what you love?
Actually works Jul 23, 2008
I always wanted these cards but never got them because they seemed a frivolous purchase. I finally broke down and got them and have since realized that the concepts that you read on the cards actually stick. There's something about them being 'morsals or wisdom' and game-like that takes the pressure of off learning the patterns. At least for me, I can play with them a bit, or just read a card or two and then get back to them days/weeks later when I'm in the mood. And in the meantime the patterns/language stays with me without having to memorize anything.

The title for this deck of cards is somewhat ambiguous, which is congruent with Ericksonian techniques. It implies that they are a self-help tool that will help you do what you love. If you love Ericksonian hypnosis techniques, they will help you practice and learn them for hypnosis scripting and therapeutic conversational patterns.
They were designed to be used by hypnotherapists, or those who have extensively studied Erickson language patterns and/or NLP. Any practicing psychotherapist, social worker, or other healthcare professional would benefit from learning Ericksonian techniques.
While the deck is somewhat expensive, it provides a handy way to practice and learn a variety of useful language patterns. Along with the "Handbook of Hypnotic Suggestions and Metaphors" by D. Corydon Hammond, this deck will provide you with many ideas for clinical applications.

Milton Ericksonian was a virtual god when it came to Hypnotherapy and these are many of his tried and true techniques. These are the same founding techniques that form the basis for Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), along with Virginia Satir and Fritz Perls. His techniques are used in NLP again and again. Take it from a C.HT and NLP practitioner that these cards are worth every penny you spend and are useful all around whether you are into NLP, Hypnosis, or not.
