Ericksonian Monographs No. 3 includes a stimulating collection of papers from the Third International Congress on Ericksonian Approaches to Hypnosis and Psychotherapy. The unifying theme of this volume is the clinical use of Ericksonian approaches for various special treatment populations, including clients with phobias, pain, stuttering, autism, psychosis, and multiple personality disorder.
Ericksonian Monographs No. 4 presents a richly stimulating collection of articles which deal with three extremely important areas of development in Ericksonian work: research, integration within the practice of other therapies, and medical applications. The first section focuses on varied research models that are especially useful to the therapist. Jean Godin discusses evocation and indirect suggestion in the communication patterns of Erickson, while Michael B. Murphy takes a linguistic structural approach to indirect suggestion. Of unusual interest is the article by Haim Omer and colleagues which describes the use of standardized hypnotic-relaxation cassettes in a gynecologic-obstetric ward. Based on data taken from seminar participants, Harriet E. Hollander and associates examine the important question of whether hypnosis is an innate ability or a learned skill.
Volume 5 of the Erickson Monographs features articles on the three-sentence induction, the preparatory phase of hypnotherapy, putting life into the therapeutic relationship, empirical investigation of Milton Erickson's approach to trance induction, the use of post-hypnotic suggestion in the hypnotherapy of pain.

En Evocacion, el Dr. Zeig continua con una exploracion que inicio hace decadas, cuando comenzo a tratar de trazar — y abundar sobre — los matices y las aplicaciones del extraordinario trabajo de Milton Erickson.
Dr Jeffrey K. Zeig has spent a lifetime evolving what he calls “evocative therapy.” In Evocation, he continues an exploration that began decades ago as he sought to trace — and to expand upon — the nuances and applications of Milton Erickson’s extraordinary work. Turning here to the original masters of evocative communication — painters, composers, filmmakers, poets, choreographers — he demystifies the grammar of the artist’s expression, teaching readers how to use it to enhance and empower their therapeutic communication. This book is built out from a central belief: Therapy at its best, whatever the paradigm, invites shared awakening rather than relying on data delivery.
