This is the first volume of the collected works of Kay Thompson, a hypnotherapist and international teacher of hypnosis and one of the most gifted students of the legendary psychiatrist, Milton Erickson. It contains articles and transcriptions of her original lectures and workshops, which have not been previously available in hard copy.

Kay Thompson's unique abilities with the language of hypnosis entranced listeners throughout the world. She expanded the ways words and language and thus metaphor could be used in clinical hypnosis and therapy, and lectured widely about how language affects physiology. Her contributions are among the underpinnings of current clinical hypnosis and are important resources for modern psychotherapy.

The editors have chosen excerpts from Kay's original lectures and workshops which reflect the range and depth of her clinical expertise and knowledge, her particular emphases, orientation and approaches, her dynamic and forceful personality and her playful hypnotic communications.

Saralee Kane, M.S.W., is in private practice in Seattle, Washington. She is the author of several publications, including Working with Victims of Organized Violence from Different Cultures.

Karen Olness MD is Professor of Pediatrics, Global Health and Infectious Diseases at Case Western Reserve University. She is past President of the International Society of Hypnosis, the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis, the Society for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis and the Society for Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics.
