The conceptualization of “permissive suggestion” ranks among the most important contributions made by Milton Erickson to hypnosis and psychotherapy. Permissive suggestion is a technique that forms a bridge between a full spectrum of hypnot- ic procedures and the type of process needed to address existential dilemmas commonly dealt with in psychotherapy.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To list three examples of the proper use of permissive suggestion in Ericksonian therapy.
  2. To describe the theory behind permissive suggestion.
