MILTON H. ERICKSON provides a unique insight into the life and experiences of this influential figure, and a clear account of his specific contributions to psychotherapy, both theoretical and practical. Erickson was the dominant force in legitimizing the use of clinical hypnosis. Through his research and practice he developed a scientific understanding of hypnotic phenomena and devised many novel clinical applications.
He took the view that psychotherapy should be formulated to meet the uniqueness of the individual’s strengths and needs, rather than tailoring the person to fit a particular theoretical approach. His directive and strategic interventions contributed substantially to the development of brief therapy approaches such as strategic therapy, solution-focused therapy, and the interactional approach. This accessible book will give anyone with an interest in the field a valuable overview of Erickson’s life, work and continuing influence upon psychotherapy and counseling today.
