Synopsis

JASON. JENNIFER. PAULA.

Each suffer from paralyzing, mental trauma inhibiting living normal lives—each knowing they couldn’t continue without help. Without change. Without courage. But, hypnotism? Really? Not something they previously considered.
It was, however, the decision that changed their lives.
Robert Brenner’s novel, Petrified Minds, chronicles hypnosis therapy sessions relating to three patients—one battles IBS, the other asthma and personal assault, and the third fears flying and travel. Brenner digs deeply into their petrified, subconscious minds, allowing readers to delve with him into the root causes of his patients’ emotional responses. Never knowing what to expect, each hypnosis session is different as Brenner searches to understand experiences for his patients’ pasts—experiences preventing them from blossoming into the people they’re meant to be.
