Skills and experience, research and theory—each plays a critical role in the development of effective therapy practice. And then there is something else. When we recall the work of such figures as Milton Erickson, Virginia Satir, Carl Rogers and Carl Whitaker, we detect another layer: artistry. Surprisingly, artistry is something that can be taught, or more accurately, expanded or enhanced. Everyone has the capacity. And it is artistry that brings forth all of that skill, experience, research and theory in effective and generative ways. In this lecture, Dr. Jeffrey Zeig will identify the creative patterns of Erickson (and others). He will explain his experiential approach to therapist development, “psychoaerobics”—how the “state” of the therapist can be the starting point for effective clinical interventions.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe the “states” model.
  2. Indicate how the state of the therapist is the progenitor of the technique.
