I liked this lesson a lot! This lesson was good and very interesting, it's amazing to see how many details there are within a person's behavior that give away their issues. The case itself was interesting and I believe the therapeutic approach to use venting dreams to reveal things to the client that were unknown to her is a good start. It was useful to see how Dr. Kappas uses techniques to help a client ease out of their denials and resistant behaviors. It was also very intriguing to see clues as to a client's sexuality and problems thereof based on their reactions and denials and misdirections. And WHOA! - I had no idea Florence Henderson and Dr. Kappas were married!

I loved this presentation. The subject was very real and easy to recognize in common people - many of the attitudes and troubles and feelings he had were easy to relate to including the unconscious resistance he was having during the session. I was pleased with Dr. Kappas' approach, his patience and keen observations of the tendencies and characteristics of this client and his adjustments were excellent. I am a physical suggestible with chronic pain too and I wish I had this very hypnosis to help me with my tough pain - I truly appreciated the methods.
