OOPs, My Bad....
I have been here on HT for about four years after I quit studying at a narrow minded CHT program and quit because of funding.
In this time I have copied and pasted so many of all of your posts and discussions I can't tell you. Roy, Barry, Melissa, John, Micheal,..... I have learned so much from your shared information. John, I copied your whole website and read every word three times... I erased it over a year ago. Roy, I have read both of your books twice, Excellent. I bought them on amazon. Three years ago a member had posted a book in PDF that is part of the curriculum for one of the online schools here, I downloaded it quick... then bought the same book on amazon, Hardcover.. Melissa, Your book is beautiful. Along with Yappko's Trancework, and Ericksonian stuff you have inspired me to desire to be great as a hypnotist in my area
And who started the "Free Breather Program"?? I use it for most of my smokers, with some variations. or was it me??
And I have watched Richard N's videos on youtube several times..
I read it here a few years ago "There hasn't been an original thought in the hypnosis community it twenty years, we just keep taking the same stuff, give it a few new phrases and package it like it was our own great intervention".
With all that said, and the fact that I have a once a month group Meetup for different issues. Every one of you should be upset with anyone whom takes your technique and call it their own. I have always told my client that "I didn't originate any of this, and The techniques I am about to show you are time tested and proven to be most effective with these issues and conditions.
I have MY protocols, as I'm sure we all do. Until a day comes where I decide to market them as my slant, they remain unnamed and are influenced from all sorts of people and their philosophies, and borrow techniques that probably go back to original creators, hundreds of years.
I think if you sell a way of doing things, you have to expect people to take and reject parts of it and 'make it their own'. But it would be right to claim, as Brian says, that you 'didn't make this stuff up' - but I think also that you have taken inspiration from x, y and z.
As an example, I love core transformation - but I've not embraced it fully nor become an official licensee - but I use it a lot and I actually think it helps my credibility by citing Andreas' work as massive inspiration. I take from it what I take - I bought the book, took the bits I liked and I wear the t-shirt. Same for Carson/Overdurf and the meta pattern, same for Jon Chase and hypnotic symbolism. I'm proud to name names which reveals reading, training and study behind my work.
So if I came out with a course/protocol entitled 'Core Symbolism' and claimed it as my own (which it would sort of would be!) without reference to the inspiration behind it - I'd expect people to be pissed off. If I shared the inspiration behind it, I'd expect them to be, in part, happy, or even proud - even if I did botch their work up in their eyes! But that's evolution I guess.
Sharing is caring, as they say ;) - but seems stealing is appealing too!
Keep your eyes open for some of my future works...
Hypnotic Dart Technique
The Goose (though toying with 'The Duck' - which I'd have to do if Mr B came after me)
The Higher Mind Protocol
Also working on something really big, better than NLP, crazier than NAC...
Total Intuitive Transformation.
With licenses for Specialists of my protocol (TITS) - with a top tier level of practitioners...TITS UP.
