The ability that Dr. Milton Erickson had for “reading the patient” and get information from them in order to build a context in which change was easy to obtain is an area that has been often overlooked due to the difficulty to understand the process that he was using. In what way was he carefully observing the patient to gain personal information from them? Several techniques will be listed and demonstrated in order to become an observant and strategic therapist.

This capacity for “reading the patient” combined with one of the most valuable techniques in Ericksonian therapy which is the seeding technique, creates a powerful intervention tool that will allow the therapist to set a proper context for intervention and create a learning environment in which change is easily achievable. It will be explained how to combine them to guarantee success in therapy.

In addition to this, several techniques will be discussed to do predictions for the patient using all the information previously obtained to help create the perfect context for hypnotic induction and intervention.


Educational Objectives:

  1. Demonstrate several techniques to obtain valuable information from the client.
  2. Demonstrate the use of the seeding technique in order to set a proper context for intervention.
  3. Define strategies to predict future outcomes for the client.
