1.) Book Review for Hypnotehrapy
Follow this format for Hypnotherapy by Dave Elman:
Book reviews should be written in the more “formal” academic language (not casual language) and should not be a restatement of the book. It is important that you always read your syllabus carefully because, although the course requirements are similar for most courses, professors will occasionally change those requirements, including the requirements for book reports. Make sure you are following your directions. Be sure you have referred to or quoted from all of the books in the project portion of your paper. Every book review should contain three elements:
First paragraph: State the author’s intent for writing the book, which includes the main thesis (100 words max).
Middle paragraph: Interact with the author’s message. For example: Did you agree or disagree with a specific idea? Why? How does the message of the book fit in with issues you had been struggling to understand before reading it? What points did the author make that were completely new to you—and why are they significant to what you do? What ideas left you wanting to explore them further, and what were your unanswered questions (300 words max.)
Final paragraph: Explain how something you read in the book will change the way you do your own work. Be specific providing concrete action steps. Phrases such as, “I will…” or “I plan to…” are appropriate here. Avoid vague generalizations (100 words max). The maximum number of pages for book reviews is TWO PAGES, DOUBLE-SPACED PER BOOK OR ONE PAGE SINGLE SPACED. SUBMIT AS WORD DOCUMENT OR PDF.
2.) 2000 Word Essay
2000 word essay – “Share how this course content can be used with you personally and your clients – give examples” The idea here is for you to apply the two books AND the 12 weekly meetings. Creating essentially an action plan for how you can use the content of this course.
