Invited Address Session 4 Part 1 from the Evolution of Psychotherapy 1995 - The Evolution of the Ericksonian Perspective
Featuring Jeffrey Zeig, PhD, with discussant Otto Kernberg, MD.
Moderated by Janet Edgette, PsyD.

Methods for training therapists customarily are directed to developing cognitive abilities. Using Milton Erickson as a model, an alternate, experiential approach is offered. The "evoking style" of the therapist determines the outcome of the treatment more than the theoretical and clinical methods to which the therapist ascribes.


Educational Objectives:

  1. To list five aspects of the evolving style of Milton Erickson.
  2. To indicate three methods for improving one's own evolving style.
