It consists of about one hundred high quality video segments taken from a live seminar conducted by Dr. Yager, and is available in both English and German.

The Yagerian Code online seminar is a simple and easy way to learn Yagerian Therapy.  The course facilitates optimum learning since you are being guided micro-step by micro-step.  You can repeat every step of the process until sure you have internalized it, or review it when you want to deepen your knowledge.

A “mind map” gives you a bird’s eye overview of the process.  Audio files of all of the videos allow you to study the method even while driving your car, or sitting in a waiting room or on a park bench.

Transcripts of several therapy sessions make sure you can reread every sentence and analyze the process step by step.

Students of the Yagerian Code online seminar consistently report they have been able to successfully use the method after only two days of studying the material.

Certification Study Guide (English Version)

This is a study guide for those seeking certification in Yagerian Method (9-21-12).  This is a list of statements from which certification questions will be drawn.   

Affirmative Statements of Certifications Questions

  1. We have the capacity to heal, both mentally and physically.
  2. Conditioned responses can take the form of conflicts in the subconscious domain.
  3. Identifying the problematic parts and then reconditioning them to support current needs and values is the core of Yagerian Method.
  4. The three levels of mental functioning in the Yagerian Method are: conscious, subconscious, and a level of extra-conscious capability.
  5. Unrealistic expectation of our ability to control our lives and behaviors become limits to our conscious abilities to do so.
  6. Our conscious abilities are limited.
  7. Learning and relearning is possible in the subconscious domain.
  8. Self-prompted action is not within the capacity of the subconscious domain.
  9. The influence of direct hypnotic suggestions can be limited by the subconscious domain.
  10. The extra-conscious domain of the mind seems to have self-awareness, but lacks proactive capacity.
  11. In the Yagerian Method, Centrum is the name of the extra-conscious domain.
  12. Phase One of the Yagerian Method  process is building rapport with the patient, educating the patient about the technique and clarifying the goal(s) of the therapy.
  13. Phase Two of the Yagerian Method process is establishing communication with Centrum, determining Centrum’s willingness to support the conscious goal, and ensuring Centrum’s ability to do the work.
  14. Phase Three of the Yagerian Method process is the actual application of the Yagerian Method to treat the presenting problem.
  15. Centrum is engaged and guided by the therapist to take the necessary steps during Phase Three of the Yagerian Method.
  16. Phase Four of the Yagerian Method is the process of determining if the previous work is complete.
  17. Phase Five of the Yagerian Method is follow-up.
  18. In Phase Five of the Yagerian Method hod, where all indications are that the work is complete, it is important for the patient to recognize that recurrence of the problem simply indicates that the work is not complete.
  19. The Yagerian Method is a technique in which unconscious “thinking” abilities are accessed and utilized.
  20. An assumption of the Yagerian Method is that our lives are largely determined by conditioning from life experiences.
  21. Patients must be aware that it is possible to change conditioning.
  22. Patients must be motivated to change as a condition of relearning values, beliefs, and behaviors.
  23. Our mental functioning is mostly unconscious.
  24. We possess a higher domain of intelligence.
  25. The subconscious domain is fragmented, consisting of “parts” representing continuing influences from experiences.
  26. In the Yagerian Method, our subconscious domain consists largely of “parts.”   These “parts” can represent a skill, value, limitation, or anything else that has been learned.
  27. The parts of the subconscious domain can be reconditioned by recognizing their existence, establishing communication with them, and educating them about our current reality, needs and values, thereby persuading them to exert their influence in ways that support current life.
  28. An assumption of the Yagerian Method is that people are conditioned by experiences in life.
  29. Another assumption of the Yagerian Method is that a higher level of intelligence (Centrum) can communicate with the conscious domain of our mind.
  30. Another assumption of the Yagerian Method is that the subconscious domain consists largely of subsystems that may function autonomously.  In Yagerian Method, these subsystems are called “parts.”
  31. Another assumption of the Yagerian Method is that there is a mental entity that may best be described as a “higher” intelligence, a domain that has been named “Centrum.”
  32. At least in the beginning of the work, the therapist should pose questions to Centrum in a direct, first-person format.
  33. During communication with Centrum, the patient will probably begin to demonstrate the “signs” associated with the trance state of hypnosis.  Examples of these signs are diaphragmatic breathing, eye roll, and flaccid muscle tone.
  34. Questions to Centrum should be posed in a direct, concrete, non-ambiguous, format, with no implied or double-meaning elements.
  35. The therapist should consistently preface questions to Centrum by saying the name “Centrum.”
  36. In the interactive process of the Yagerian Method, the therapist is informed by responses from Centrum.
  37. If the patient has found he cannot use the “chalkboard,” the therapist should not abandon the use of the chalkboard completely; it may work later.
  38. The therapist, while speaking to a resistant part, should acknowledge the part as being well-intended.
  39. Using authoritative tones when trying to resolve, bypass, or overwhelm a resisting part can be effective, yet it risks the stimulation of anger and resentment..
  40. In the model of the Yagerian Method, it is understood that a distinct “part” of the subconscious mind can hold opinions that disagree with the patient’s conscious opinion.
  41. The disappearance of the chalkboard is the most frequently encountered evidence of unconscious resistance.
  42. Defining the goals to be achieved is one of the first tasks to accomplish in the Yagerian Method.
  43. In the Yagerian Method, the patient provides the problem; the therapist provides the means and guides the process.
  44. The concepts of the Yagerian Method should be presented in small segments by the therapist, explaining each in adequate detail to ensure accurate understanding.
  45. While employing the Yagerian Method, the therapist is encouraged not to be involved in the content of the issues the patient is addressing.
  46. When employing the Yagerian Method, the therapist is more divorced from content than in traditional techniques of therapy.
  47. To better guide the process, the therapist should never make premature assumptions about the probable causes of problems presented by patients.
  48. With exceptions, the role of the therapist is to guide the process of the therapy, remaining as uninvolved in the content of the work as is possible.
  49. As the therapist employing Yagerian Method, your overall objective should be to teach the patient the necessary skills, then guide the patient to use those skills to accomplish his or her goal.
  50. To be effective, psychotherapy must be patient-centered.
  51. In the Yagerian Method, the patient consciously defines the direction of the work of therapy.
  52. Often the patient has initially defined a general objective, such as “I want to be happy,” but has not defined the specifics of the changes that will be required to achieve the objective.
  53. It is necessary to identify the specific barriers to the patient’s happiness if they are to be removed.
  54. Life experiences are responsible for the conditioning that results in psychogenic problems.
  55. An undesired consequence of conditioning can best be resolved by reconditioning.
  56. The essential function of the Yagerian Method is to accomplish change by reconditioning.
  57. The subconscious causes of an illness can be uncovered and resolved by using the Yagerian Method.
  58. Subconscious conditioning limits our conscious ability to control our behavior and experience of life.
  59. In order to guide the process of the Yagerian Method, the therapist must be able to communicate with Centrum.
  60. Centrum is usually aware of present circumstances, and so is aware of what the therapist is saying.
  61. In addition to using the “chalkboard,” other techniques such as using an inner voice, ideo-motor responses, or Chevreul’s pendulum can be engaged to communicate with Centrum.
  62. Ideo-motor responses are limited to the “Yes-No,” concrete type of answers.
  63. It is more time consuming to use a pendulum instead of the “Chalkboard” method.
  64. When instructing a patient in the Yagerian Method, the therapist’s use of the word “chalkboard” means the patient is free to choose any imagined representation upon which Centrum can write.
  65. Assuming the patient is able to visualize the “chalkboard,” the therapist should ask Centrum to indicate willingness to communicate by writing the word “yes” on the chalkboard.
  66. After the patient can visualize the “chalkboard,” the therapist can teach the patient how to validate a response on the chalkboard by inviting the patient to try to erase the response.
  67. Validation of the reality of communication from Centrum is of value to both the patient and the therapist.
  68. After defining the goal of therapy, educating the patient about the concepts of the Yagerian Method, and establishing communications with Centrum, the therapist should obtain commitment from the patient to comply with the “Guiding Rule.”
  69. The sequence of questions and requests to Centrum should follow a logical, decision-tree format, once the goal of therapy has been specified and communication with Centrum has been established.
  70. If the therapist is unable to confirm that Centrum is aware of the problem, the therapist should ask Centrum to listen and ask the patient to verbalize his or her concern, thereby explaining the problem to Centrum.
  71. If Centrum is not willing to cooperate in achieving the goal of therapy, the therapist must explore the reason for the refusal and persuade Centrum to cooperate.
  72. If you, as the therapist, elect to read and follow the Flow Charts during a session, it is important that you read in a voice that does not reveal that you are reading.
  73. One of the most common problems in the administration of the Yagerian Method is that patients will sometimes persist in responding with conscious opinions in lieu of the responses from Centrum.
  74. If the Yagerian Method is to proceed productively, the clinician must be sensitive to statements by the patient to differentiate between conscious opinions and the communications from Centrum,.
  75. The patient usually becomes willing to conform to the Guiding Rule if the clinician points out that conscious opinion has not resolved the problem.
  76. The therapist should interrupt when responses from Centrum are delayed (exceeding a minute or more) by asking Centrum a question such as “Centrum, are you still engaged in the task I requested?”
  77. The proactive action of one or more parts in resisting change occurs because their conditioned beliefs are contrary to the goal of therapy.
  78. One of the manifestations of unconscious resistance is interfering with or preventing communications with Centrum.
  79. During the Yagerian Method, the apparently conscious fabrication of distracting stories by the patient is a common manifestation of unconscious resistance.
  80. Obstacles in the course of applying the Yagerian Method are manifestations of unconscious beliefs that were once logical and functional.
  81. One basis for unconscious resistance is the fear of the consequence of change.
  82. If a resisting part is preventing or interfering with communication from Centrum by preventing the patient from visualizing a chalkboard, the therapist should establish an alternate method of communication.
  83. An inner voice, motor signals such as ideo-motor responses, and using any of the senses are alternate methods of communicating with Centrum.
  84. The Yagerian Method, even though Centrum has the ability to “think,” Centrum still lacks pro-active capacity.
  85. When a patient reports a continuation of one or more symptoms that have already been treated by Yagerian Method, the therapist should affirm that the recurrence only means that the work is not complete, not that the patient or the work is a failure.
  86. If a patient expresses conscious confusion about a response from Centrum, the therapist should temporarily disregard the expression itself, but reassure the patient that the answer will probably become clear.
  87. Centrum may respond in the first-person, communicating orally with the therapist.
  88. During the process of the Yagerian Method, if a patient is confused and you believe it to be in the patient’s best interest to understand, a request to Centrum to provide clarifying information to the conscious satisfaction of the patient is usually adequate.
  89. When the patient wants to remember the content of the work, and doesn’t receive that information, your first step is to determine if it is Centrum or some other part that objects to conscious memory.
  90. The use of the Yagerian Method for the treatment of depression, addictions, and chronic pain are areas of high potential value.
  91. For patients that have not had previous exposure and training in the Yagerian Method, or if Centrum needs to be educated about the theory of the Yagerian Method, the process of the Yagerian Method may take longer.
  92. The use of Flow Charts is an essential tool for Phase III of the Yagerian Method process.
  93. Phases III and IV of the Yagerian Method process have an average completion time of 3-6 hours.
  94. The real test for the completeness of the Yagerian Method process takes place post-treatment, when the patient is in the real world.
  95. In Hypnotic Age Regression, the patient is necessarily consciously aware of, and involved in, all of the steps of the protocol. This is a primary difference between the Yagerian Method and Hypnotic Age Regression.
  96. The treatment of choice for a wide variety of psychogenic disorders is the Yagerian Method.
  97. It is true that most of our mental functioning takes place without conscious awareness.
  98. In the Yagerian Method, “parts” exists in the mind that were learned, such as a skill, influence, fear, or value.
  99. Centrum is in a position to communicate with, influence and educate subconscious parts.
  100. All “parts” of the subconscious domain are intelligent to the extent of being capable of learning.
  101. Most “parts” of the subconscious domain are positively disposed toward the welfare of the individual.
  102. The “parts” of the subconscious domain are not aware of the patient’s conscious opinion.
  103. The Yagerian Method may be effective and adequate as a sole treatment.
  104. We must conclude that resistance is present in the subconscious domain when someone consciously wants a change and yet it does not spontaneously happen.
  105. The goals of the work as defined by the patient should be prioritized based on the patient’s sense of importance, yet with consideration for the therapist’s judgment.
  106. If effective cooperation is to be possible during the application of the Yagerian Method, the therapist must adequately inform the patient about the theory and process of the Yagerian Method.
  107. Patients commonly believe that they know why they have the problem they present.
  108. Many disorders and illnesses are mediated by the action of smooth muscle under the control of unconscious process.
  109. The Yagerian Method is usually not necessary for treating acute pain, since there has not been opportunity for secondary gain to set in.
  110. The Yagerian Method has been evolving over the past three decades and continues to evolve through research and development.
