Diese Aufnahme zeigt Dr. Ericksons innovative Kombination von hypnotischen und psychotherapeutischen Techniken in englischer Sprache mit einem deutschen Transkript. 

Dieses Video beinhaltet eine Therapiesitzung mit zwei Klienten: Monde und Nick. Monde ist eine 32-jährige Frau, die mit drei Kindern verheiratet ist. Monde hatte drei Therapiesitzungen mit Dr. Erickson und war in früheren Sitzungen einer Hypnose ausgesetzt. Monde sieht Dr. Erickson, weil sie sich als Person, Mutter und Frau unsicher fühlt. Der andere Klient, Nick, ist ein 20-jähriger Student, der noch keine Erfahrungen mit Hypnose oder Psychotherapie gesammelt hat. Außerdem ist Nick ein Bekannter von Monde und ihrem Ehemann. Die Therapiesitzung besteht aus zwei Teilen: Teil 1 umfasst Monde als primären Patienten, während Nick als sekundären Patienten und Teil 2 umfasst Nick als primären Patienten und Monde als sekundären Patienten.

Milton H. Erickson MD's Profile

Milton H. Erickson, MD, was an American psychiatrist who specialized in medical hypnosis and family therapy. He was founding president of the American Society for Clinical Hypnosis and noted for his approach to the unconscious mind as creative and solution-generating.
Dr. Erickson was plagued with enormous physical handicaps for most of his life. At age 17, he contracted polio and was so severely paralyzed that doctors believed he would die. While recovering in bed, almost entirely lame and unable to speak, he became strongly aware of the significance of nonverbal communication – body language, tone of voice, and the way that these nonverbal expressions often directly contradicted the verbal ones. He also began to have “body memories” of the muscular activity of his own body. By concentrating on these memories, he slowly began to regain control of parts of his body to the point where he was eventually able to talk and use his arms again. His doctor recommended exercising his upper body only so Milton Erickson planned a 1,000 miles canoe trip to build up the strength to attend college. His adventure was challenging, and although he still did not have full use of his legs at the end, he was able to walk with a cane.

The Ericksonian approach departs from traditional hypnosis in a variety of ways. While the process of hypnosis has customarily been conceptualized as a matter of the therapist issuing standardized instructions to a passive patient, Ericksonian hypnosis stresses the importance of the interactive therapeutic relationship and purposeful engagement of the inner resources and experiential life of the subject. Dr. Erickson revolutionized the practice of hypnotherapy by coalescing numerous original concepts and patterns of communication into the field.
The novel psychotherapeutic strategies which Dr. Erickson employed in his treatment of individuals, couples, and families derived from his hypnotic orientation. Although he was known as the world’s leading hypnotherapist, Dr. Erickson used formal hypnosis in only one-fifth of his cases in clinical practice.
Dr. Erickson effected a fundamental shift in modern psychotherapy. Many elements of the Ericksonian perspective which were once considered extreme are now incorporated into the mainstream of contemporary practice.
