Item description for Harry, the Hypno-potamus: Metaphorical Tales for the Treatment of Children by Linda Thomson...

Harry the Hypno-potamus is a collection of metaphorical stories that deal with a variety of physical and behavioral problems faced by children. Embedded in each story is a metaphor as well as hypnotherapeutic techniques that can be used as part of a comprehensive approach to the diagnosis and treatment of a host of disorders. Reading the title story, "How Harry the Hypno-potamus Got His Name," to a child is a wonderful way to introduce him or her to the idea of hypnosis as well as understanding the power of the child's imagination. The thirty-two illustrated stories feature animals in the Ashland Zoo that rely on the guidance and support of Dr. Dan, the zoo's vet, to help master such problems as: --Phobias and anxiety attacks --Pain management --Sleep disorders --Asthma and other serious medical disorders --Habits and habit control --Death and dying A clinician may wish to read one of the stories with a child or may find it more suitable to adapt the techniques to his own unique style. Some of the therapeutic interventions are very problem specific while others are more general and can be used for a variety of conditions. Each story contains full-color illustrations and is designed so that a specific story can be read by the clinician to the child. In addition, there is introductory clinical material included that explains how to use the book and the stories it contains, as well as additional references.

"Harry The Hypno-potamus" is the answer when your question is:"What do I offer next to this anxious child?"
Here, either alone for the good readers,or in concert with the involved adult, the child can learn to express fears and concerns and follow with coping techniques. It is an adjunct to good medical care, good teaching, and more effective parenting.

An anxiety must have.....  Jan 30, 2007
this is an amazing book! it has helped my son to recognize his anxieties and deal with them, all while reading a great story book about animals at a zoo. he still has a way to go but the stories have helped him a great deal. it was recommended by a psycologist and I'm very happy to have found it at this site.
Charming and helpful  Mar 27, 2006
This is a lovely collection of stories to suggest positive attitudes and solutions to children's problems. Winsome colored illustrations of various animals who are helped by story-line doctors - who are invited to assist when the animals are in distress - add to the charm of this helpful book.
