Erickson often saw the presenting symptom as the patient's solution to a problem that might not be immediately evident. By identifying the core problem that the patient was trying to solve with symptoms, Erickson was able to create appearingly simple solutions that produced lasting changes. This short course is the central element taken from our Congress presentation that teaches therapists how to view symptoms, in that Ericksonian mind set, to find brief but lasting solutions.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe the difference of "why" questions from "what" questions.
  2. To describe the redefinition of a patient's problem through the Erickson lens.
