I think ones where you pace and lead. That can be any of them, but ones like the Leisure Induction (for which Graham has a great book that is money well spent, by the way) where you do not just proceed necessarily systematically, but elicit details and proceed as they go into trance would be great. That can apply to any induction, I suppose, however some would be better and showing how you build the process based on eliciting a certain state or certain responses. Even though I logically know that, it is nice to see more of that sort of pace and lead and pinpointing where you notice X and why that led you to Y and ultimately Z. The Fractionation Conversation kind of seems like a similar one, and the My Friend John induction as well (I really have not seen videos of that one done on its own as a full blown induction either).
I think a good video/tutorial of The Confusion Induction that gives some insight into your thought processes and what you see that let you know when and how to proceed and ultimately stop would be nice. It is too easy, I think, to just ramble on in a confusing way, possibly using mumbo jumbo, or even effectively getting them in loops or whatnot, and just guessing when you've built up enough response potential or gotten them loosened up enough to get on with it. I can see going on too long or going for the punchline, as it were, and I have not seen many great examples where the process is really explained along with the thoughts of the hypnotist at each step along the way. Kind of the same with the Sensory Overload Induction for a lot of the same reasons. How to effectively build the induction, proceed through, and based on the client knowing (or improving) when to proceed and not get caught up in your own confusing or sensory-rich language. Ditto with the 7+or-2 induction. I am not sure I have seen any demos of that, just read about it, and it shares elements of confusion or sensory overload.
Those are my suggestions. Mainly, and in no particular order:
Really though, especially for a tutorial, the induction almost seems secondary to reading and adapting to the client. Even the Elman Induction or Handshake Interrupt, it is less about the steps than about the testing or reading the client and knowing when and how to best proceed (more obvious in the Elman Induction, but even there you can mess it up by ignoring their signs). I hope that helps.
If you will allow a bit of a tangent...it occurred to me that this kind of works like (or maybe in fact, is) a leverage induction. Typically, I think of that as something like catalepsy for some reason, and perhaps I am attributing that to things like the handshake interrupt, ambiguous touch, or pattern interrupts in general where you stop the process. Anyway, being as this a very visual-based induction, I am wondering if this might be particularly useful either in capitalizing on the strength of visual types, or in priming the pump for doing visual phenomena. After all, if you start off having them hallucinate a flickering candle, that is a nice jumping-off point for having them visualize whatever you want them to picture, or NOT picture if going for negative hallucinations.
As a bit of an aside, I suppose you could induce/use catalepsy to elicit more of a focus on the body and tactile sensations as well, or creating/modifying internal dialogue for focusing on that element. However, I notice you also bring in the kinesthetic and auditory to the process later as well, so you do kind of cover all the based despite the move visual-heavy nature of the induction overall.
Short version, I like it. Especially the permissive nature that invites them to add motion, and the different senses. Thanks for sharing.
That depends. In no particular order...
Where is said person located? That could impact recommendations for face-to-face trainings, online, digital, etc., although I would highly recommend at least some live trainings.
What type of hypnotist do they want to be? Any specialties or areas of interest? There is a range of areas one could specialize in.
What are the certification requirements for what they want to do? I have some certifications. I also know that some of my best trainings have not certification involved. However certain areas may require specific types of certification, so that's important to know.
