Often, being dubbed a "master" means that what the teacher does cannot be done by others. However, a cornerstone of Jeffrey Zeig's lifelong quest has been to demystify, annotate, and democratize Milton H. Erickson's work and then his own. In this session, the presenter will map the breadth and scope of Zeig's work, which he has augmented by integrating a theoretical and experimental corpus with the most effective practices of the arts: film, music, theater, literature, and dance. This powerful weave, which Zeig calls “experiential psychotherapy,” is an especially powerful holistic approach to working with the broad range of clients.
Dr. Staffin, a “frequent flyer” in the NYC Master Class since its inception in 2002, will illuminate Dr. Zeig’s work by presenting aspects and examples of Utilization, Communication, Interpersonal factors, as well as Strategic design and intent. Using a combination of lecture, case examples, and group activities, he will highlight how therapists can apply these clinical tools and skills in their own work.
