All of us are shaped from an essence, the stuff we are made of, the hero within.

With his numerous physical problems, Milton H. Erickson had to struggle for life and for every day life. His example is extraordinary in many ways and is, for many of us, a distinctive model; a hero. And Milton has also become a story teller.

Among our models, our heroes, and the stories that have been told to us, the ones we’ve built, the ones we’ve integrated, there are some that are metaphors deep within us. How do we refer to them? How do they structure and impact our lives? How do we utilize them? How do they impell our behaviors, our feelings, our sensations? How do we play with them? How do we pass them around among us?

Through a list of questions, we will construct in this workshop an inventory of the heroes that we’ve integrated into our selves, and the stories that are built of our deep metaphors. We will travel, and explore those resources that have contributed to our construction and our structure, in productive and unproductive ways. We will play with those heroes, those models we live out in unknown or ill-defined ways.

This workshop will offer ways to utilize heroes in our therapeutic goals for inner change and to help the patient build upon the hero within.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Utilize our models of heroes, our deep metaphors, as resources for inner change;
  2. Define how to use those heroes, those metaphors, in our therapeutic goals.
