Integrating key concepts from biology, medicine, neuroscience, and psychology, Ernest Rossi has forged a revolutionary new paradigm that encompasses mind, body, and spirit. Rossi's new world view— Psychosocial and Cultural Genomics— has profound implications for understanding the human condition. He describes how we can all learn to facilitate our evolving consciousness with numinous experiences of Art, Beauty, Truth, and Happiness in our daily creative work of building a better brain.
This portrait of Milton Erickson’s wife reveals her unique contributions to his work, as well as her own productive life. The author follows the tapestry of Elizabeth’s life, beginning with childhood, the circus, and the first moment of courtship, when Milton spotted Elizabeth as he looked out the window. Then and there he declared with certainty that he was going to marry her!
In the conversations in this volume, Dr. Erickson expresses his basic ideas about the theory and practice of therapy. He was what Jay Haley called the first strategic therapist—even “the first therapist, since he was the first major clinician to concentrate on how to change people.”
The interviews that make up this volume share Dr. Erickson’s methods of dealing with whole families, and his therapy of children. Taken from recorded conversations by Jay Haley and John Weakland from 1958 to 1961, they present the techniques and processes of a therapist who had already been pursuing methods of therapy the rest of the world had barely begun.

Indirect communication is the overall concept we use to cover what we have variously described as two-level communication, the naturalistic approach, and the utilization approach. The common denominator of all these approaches is that hypnotherapy involves something more than simple talk on a single, objective level. The readily apparent, overt content of a message is like the tip of an iceberg.
In my original Foreword to this volume I expressed the opinion that, with Milton Erickson, Ernest Rossi “has done the best job to date in clarifying Erickson’s ideas on the nature of hypnosis and hypnotic therapy, on techniques of hypnotic induction, on ways of inducing therapeutic change and of validating this change.” Many books have been written about Erickson’s approaches to therapy in the 33 years that have passed since this book was published, yet I will still stand with that opinion.
