The Erickson Streaming Video Collection

The Erickson Streaming Video Collection is a project started by the Milton H. Erickson Foundation in 2020. Over the decades, the Foundation has amassed a large collection of videos of the late Milton Erickson, MD practicing psychotherapy. Dr. Jeffrey Zeig and the crew at the Foundation are working to digitize and highlight important segments from Dr. Erickson’s teachings and provide them here. Our goal is to provide high quality Ericksonian content to keep Dr. Erickson’s innovative psychotherapy approaches alive through short- and long- form videos. In each of the cases presented, Dr. Jeffrey Zeig explains the techniques Erickson demonstrated.

Each video comes with closed captions, as well as a PDF transcript you can use to read along. Some videos are offered with CE credit, or with alternate language translations. Check the "Alternate Options" tab on each video listing to find these.
