Tobi Goldfus, LCSW-C, has bravely taken on one of the toughest challenges therapists treating young people can face: restoring common sense and a sense of humanism to those who are spending (too) much of their lives living in an untamed cyberspace.
— Michael D. Yapko, PhD, author of "Breaking Free From Depression", "Trancework" and "The Discriminating Therapist"
This book is rich with concrete ideas that help us combine all we know about connection, boundaries, intimacy, and development with the complexities and benefits of the digital world.
— Lynn Lyons, LICSW, author of "Using Hypnosis with Children" and "Anxious Kids, Anxious Parents"
Tobi Goldfus’ idea of developing the “inner selfie” of her young clients is a stroke of genius. Therapists from all backgrounds will enjoy and benefit from this perspective.
— Bernhard Trenkle, Dipl.Psych., President of International Hypnosis (ISH)
The book and accompanying Social Media Assessment tool teaches clinicians how to join young clients in assessing where they are on a continuum from healthy use of social media to more compulsive, addictive online behaviors.
— Linda Thomson, PhD., author of "Harry Hypnopotamus Tales" and creator of Stress Free Surgery
The major pathway of this book involves using this information to help her young clients develop a strong, resourceful, core self. She offers highly effective tools to achieve this goal, including practice of the relaxation response, identifying resources available in real life as well as in cyberspace, and introducing brief trances called “trancettes” to help access down-regulated states. Of particular interest is Goldfus’ 7 stages of smartphone attachment and her strategies to improve self-regulation and sharpen an observer self.
— Maggie Phillips, PhD., author of "Healing the Divided Self" (with Claire Frederick) and "Finding the Energy to Heal, Reversing Chronic Pain, and Freedom from Pain" (with Peter Levine)

A long-time member of the Master Class, I was honored to be invited to contribute to  Ericksonian Therapy Now: The Master Class with Jeffrey K. Zeig, PhD. The book comes directly out of the innovative collaborations that Jeffrey K. Zeig’s Master Class in New York City have spawned. It offers an unparalleled opportunity to study single-session therapies that are based in experiential methods. Each transcript allows us to sit in on these unique sessions — poignant, powerful, amusing, revelatory.
