PRESENTER: Jeffrey Zeig, PhD
DISCUSSANT: Donald Meichenbaum, PhD
MODERATOR: Kathryn Rossi, PhD

Building on the contributions of Milton Erickson, MD, therapists can advance their work through the introduction of evocative techniques gleaned from studying codes of influence in the arts. The artist and the therapist share similar domains: a striving to alter perception; to modify and expand perspectives; and to stir the human heart. Therapists can explore how to use untapped aspects of their medium through teasing out the connections between the palette of the artist and the traditional toolbox of the clinician.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe the difference between informative and evocative communication.
  2. List three evocative communication methods that can empower therapy.
  3. Given a patient, describe how to use evocative communication.
