In this video, you will see Erickson’s unusual way of treating anorexia. Erickson described himself as a person who has an iron fist, but a velvet glove. He knew when it was right to be firm, to be disciplined, and even to be assertive in work with a client. Dr. Jeffrey Zeig provides insightful commentary on this historic Erickson clip.
For this one-hour video, we reached backed into the Erickson archives, circa 1973 to 1978, to Milton Erickson’s teaching seminars. Erickson conducted these teaching seminars in the comfort and intimacy of his own home. In this video, we encounter three cases – each dealing primarily with trauma. And in each of these cases, there is hidden meaning. Erickson demonstrates how to take “extraneous” information provided by the client, understand the context relevant to the client’s problem, and insightfully extrapolate the true meaning for therapeutic effect.
In this video, Dr. Milton Erickson describes sexual development — from infancy to adulthood, with a focus on male sexual maturation. As Erickson’s describes sexual development, the viewer feels as if they are going through the process as well. Erickson also includes humorous anecdotes of his children as they grew into adults. At the end of the video Dr. Jeffrey Zeig comments on Erickson’s fascinating teaching methods and communication techniques.
In Part 2 of Dr. Erickson’s Orientation to Sexual Development, Milton Erickson continues his interesting lecture about the natural developmental processes involved with sexual/relational maturity.

This video contains the best illustration of how Milton Erickson's handles cases presented to him. Using both hypnotherapy and strategic directives, Erickson works with a woman who has a phobia of a flying in a plane. This significant case exemplifies the fundamental principles and practices of an Ericksonian approach. These can be applied to other presenting problems and used by clinicians who subscribe to other treatment methodologies for a particular problem.
Milton Erickson often advised psychotherapy students to study anthropology so that therapy could be provided from the perspective of the cultural background of the client. In the video, Erickson uses his understanding of cultural orientation when working with an adolescent where the presenting problem is a speech defect. This is a highly informative case of using strategic and systemic processes that can be applied to other presenting problems.
