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.
This video involves a therapy session with two clients: Monde and Nick. Monde is a 32-year-old women who is married with three children. Monde has had three therapy sessions with Dr. Erickson and has been exposed to hypnosis in prior sessions. Monde is seeing Dr. Erickson because she is feeling insecure about herself as a person, mother, and wife. The other client, Nick, is a 20-year-old sophomore in college who has had no previous experience with hypnosis or psychotherapy. In addition, Nick is an acquaintance of Monde and her husband. The therapy session is conducted in two parts: part one involves Monde as the primary patient while Nick is the secondary patient and part two involves Nick as the primary patient and Monde as the secondary patient.

This volume brings together 40 of the field's innovators to demonstrate both the breadth of Ericksonian therapy - from pain management to trauma resolution - and the clinical considerations attending its use.
Offering an entirely new fundamental model of hypnosis from an Ericksonian perspective, this book is valuable to the beginning and intermediate practitioner who wants to add hypnotherapy into clinical practice. It provides a comprehensive genealogy (an Ericksonian family tree), testimony to Dr. Erickson’s significant influence; deconstructs the key concepts of hypnosis; presents real-life cases, dispels myths; and demystifies the process of eliciting trance.
The 1985 Evolution of Psychotherapy Conference was called the Woodstock of Psychotherapy. Writer Carlos Amantea penetrated every corner of the first Conference, talking with the psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors who attended,and writing down everything he saw from the ambience of the huge Phoenix Convention Center, to the tiniest feeling of angst that he (and many of the other participants) felt.
