Workshop 06 from the Evolution of Psychotherapy 1990 - Fundamentals of Ericksonian Hypnosis, featuring Jeffrey Zeig, PhD.
Hypnosis is a method of injunctive communication used to help patients elicit previously dormant potentials. The phenomenology of Ericksonian hypnosis will be developed through lecture, demonstration and practice exercises.
Erickson demonstrates his utilization method of entering into the client’s world. He demonstrates his unique approach to working with dreams using a parallel process to stimulate strategic understandings of restrictive family patterns.
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. Also contained in this volume are book reviews on the psychobiology of mind-body healing, experiencing Erickson.
Volume 9 of the Erickson Monographs features an "Erickson Hypnotic Demonstration" from 1964, documented by Jay Haley, "A Cognitive Contextual Theory and Classification of Milton H. Erickson's Hypnotherapeutic Techniques" by Akira Otani, "A Multischema Model for Combining Ericksonian and Cognitive Therapy" by Jeffrey B. Feldman, "Case Commentary: A Woman with Chronic Anxiety and Panic Attacks" by Richard Fisch, and "'Trance-formational' Moments in the Trance Work of a Session Conducted" by Stephen R. Lankton by Bradford P. Keeney & Gregg Eichenfield.
IC01 Short Course 07 - The Use of Ericksonian Hypnosis in the Treatment of Borderlines and Addictions - IIana H. Oren, PhD
Borderline personality is an underlying character structure, marked by a fragmented sense of
identity and maladaptive patterns of perceiving, behaving and relating to others. The Borderline is
stuck in "yes, but!" or "I hate you! Don't leave me!" stance. In order to get the habitually
oppositional patient to respond, the therapist needs to structure the therapeutic messages in a
way that they are not easily recognized on a conscious level. Ericksonian hypnosis paves the
