En español. 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.
“For the many who never had the opportunity and never will have the opportunity to attend workshops led by Milton Erickson, this work will serve as an invaluable surrogate. Psychotherapists, in general, as well as hypnotherapists, will find the work rewarding reading and study, for Erickson is above all a psychotherapist, and his modus operandi transcends clinical hypnotism. As for academicians and researchers, I believe they will find enough food for thought and research here to keep them busy for some time to come.”
—Andre M. Weitzenhoffer
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.

“LA INDUCCIÓN DE HIPNOSIS es uno de esos raros libros que ofrecen mucho más de lo que implican con el título. La inducción es sólo la parte central del medallón, porque también se explora el campo completo de la hipnosis, incluyendo su historia, sus mitos y definiciones. Este libro destaca la filosofía de Zeig y su estilo evocativo de enseñanza.”
Milton H. Erickson Lives! is a book that was a lifetime in the making. Both the author and the Foundation Press had hoped to launch the book at the 11th Erickson Congress, a presentation that would have that been most fitting. It almost came together. I had the privilege of reading an early draft of this work. It is the story of how Peter Nemetschek was affected by participation in training workshops taught by Milton. H. Erickson in the late 1970’s.
Welcome to the worlds of conceptual communication and experiential learning, the last line in the Preface of this book, prepares readers for the Psychoaerobics Exercises. The exercises are designed to elicit in therapists generative states, from which both therapist and client can benefit. Composed of four sections -- Fundamental Perspectives, Warm-up Exercises, Psychoaerobic Exercises, and Concluding Remarks -- this book begins with a discussion on conceptual realization; Zeig proposes that therapists should approach therapy as artists, not as scientists. Facts inform; art impacts, he writes, explaining that the situation of therapy is one of uncertainty and ambiguity, both of which elicit emotion. Zeig credits his mentor, Milton H. Erickson, MD, who communicated concepts experientially and minimized facts, thereby becoming one of the world s greatest communicators.
Imagine spending an evening with the icons of a profession and you begin to appreciate what Rubin Battino has fashioned in his literary play on the life of Milton H. Erickson, M.D. Using this dramatic device, like a Greek dialogue, Battino applies the same approach he used in his highly successful bioplay of Viktor Frankl: Meaning. The voices of Dr. Erickson, his family, Margaret Mead, Stanley Milgram, John Weakland, Jay Haley, and many, many others resonate in the reader s mind. Using Erickson s own words, and the words of his contemporaries, the scenes cover his early life and professional development, his family experiences, his professional interactions, and even some classic cases.
