Hypnotic Inductions: Favorite Place Method (for children ages 7-11)




Hypnotic Induction Techniques


Favorite Place Method

(For Children Ages 7 - 11)


Instructions to hypnotist


A tactile technique, such as holding a stuffed animal, may be appropriate
for a 2-year-old. A 4-year-old may respond better to a rag-doll and a
6-year-old to a coin or television technique. Developmentally, a school
child (7-11 years of age) may respond best to a favorite place technique
and ad adolescent to sports imagery.


During the pre-hypnotic interview, as much information as possible should
be gathered about the child's favorite place. This information will be fed
back during the session.


Spoken to subject


Just make yourself nice and comfortable in the chair. Now I would like you
to put your hands on your lap and to use your eyes to find a spot on one
of your hands on which you would like to focus all of your attention. It
might be a wrinkle or a fingernail. Now that you have found that spot -
that special spot on which you have chosen to focus all of your attention
- let yourself really concentrate on that one spot; let yourself totally
concentrate on that spot that was special for you, concentrate on it just
as hard as you can. As you do that, you can still be aware of my voice and
you can let all of your body become very relaxed and comfortable. Now in a
little time - I'm not exactly sure when, but soon - your eyes will become
so relaxed and comfortable that they will want to close.


You pick the time that feels just right for you. And when that happens,
you can feel even more relaxed and comfortable than you are feeling right
now. When that happens, when your eyes close, we can talk about some other
very pleasant things that are relaxing and comfortable for you. (Reinforce
as needed for eye closure) That's it - so comfortable and peaceful from
the top of your head all the way down to the bottom of your toes. And when
you are feeling so relaxed and comfortable, like you feel right now, you
might like to imagine that you are in your favorite place in the whole
world. Being there right now. Now, that favorite place might be a place
you have really been to before, or a place you have only read about, or a
place you have dreamed about. But everything about that favorite place is
just the way you want it to be. You might be there by yourself or maybe
with some very special friend. Of course, you are doing your favorite
activities and everything about the day is just the way you would like it
to be. I am not sure where your favorite place is - I imagine it might be
(Information obtained from child in interview) I know that you know where
your favorite place is and that you are enjoying it right now. You can
continue to enjoy your favorite place and all of the things you would like
to do while we talk about special things you can do when you are relaxed
and in your favorite place - things that can help you.


(Note: If performing therapy, the therapist begins to work on treatment
goals with appropriate suggestions and questioning with ideomotor
signaling)


Now you can continue to be in your favorite place for a moment longer. In
the next minute or so, it will be time for you to return to the room here
with me, feeling refreshed and relaxed and very good about what you have
learned and what you can do when (reinforce therapeutic suggestions) Just
let yourself gradually return feeling refreshed and relaxed, ready to open
your eyes and to be back here with me. You can go back to your favorite
place any time you want.


Welcome back (child's name).
