All of Milton Erickson’s cases are based in utilization. It is an “alchemical formula” of turning lead into gold. Utilization is not a technique; it is an orientation that the therapist assumes. Utilization is an orientation of sufficiency that is the opposite of psychological problems, which can be viewed as believed in insufficiencies.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe the Utilization Approach.
  2. Given a client describe how to utilize context.
  3. Given a client describe how to utilize symptom words.
