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 hypnotic procedures and the type of processing needed to address existential dilemmas commonly dealt with in psychotherapy.

Educational Objectives:

  1. List three examples of proper use of permissive suggestion in Ericksonian Therapy.
  2. Describe the theory behind permissive suggestion.
