Understanding Ericksonian Psychotherapy The Selected Writings of Sidney Rosen

by Victor Kiarsis

Understanding Ericksonian Psychotherapy The Selected Writings of Sidney Rosen Synopsis

This book is a collection of selected writings by Dr. Sidney Rosen that illuminates the work of the renowned clinical psychiatrist, Dr. Milton Erickson, widely known as the father of modern hypnotherapy. Dr. Rosen, who worked closely with Erickson and edited the leading collection of his teaching tales, illustrates Erickson's unconventional and life-changing hypnotic techniques and strategic therapy, rooted in his belief in the healing power of the imagination. This exploration of Erickson hypnotherapy identifies factors effective in all forms of psychotherapy. Stressing the importance of therapeutic trance, Dr. Rosen writes that shamans, healers, and psychotherapists can use the power of imagination to help us take responsibility for concretizing a thought after it presents itself, and then altering it in positive ways. As a student and close friend of Dr. Erickson, Dr. Rosen shares his insights about Erickson's teaching methods in a direct, engaging manner that allows readers access to Ericksonian philosophy and techniques. Many therapists will find both Rosen's and Erickson's approaches compatible with their own and far removed from their preconceptions about hypnosis. And all readers will learn from Rosen's wisdom about how to use Ericksonian techniques, including self-hypnosis, to improve their lives. Offering guidance for providers of individual and group therapy, as well as insights for the general reader, this book is an invaluable introduction to Ericksonian Hypnotherapy.

Understanding Ericksonian Psychotherapy The Selected Writings of Sidney Rosen Press Reviews

What a pleasure to see this wonderful collection of Sidney Rosen's papers. He has been an illustrious and unique contributor to the fields of hypnosis and psychotherapy over the years, and it's a great thing to see some of his many writings all gathered together. Bravo! - Stephen Gilligan, PhD., psychologist and author of Generative Trance Dr. Sidney Rosen is a healer. Like all healers, he is a teacher. He teaches by way of example. He teaches in the manner of his interactions. He teaches didactically. In this collection of Sid's writings, those who may not have had the opportunity to study with and learn from him can benefit from his skill and wisdom. Those who have can enjoy recalling their time with Sid, time spent savoring his clinical acumen, his creativity, and his loving warmth. - Robert Staffin, PsyD, ABPH, Author of More Common Therapy: The experiential Psychotherapy of Jeffrey K. Zeig This most excellent work captures the essence of Sidney Rosen's work in the field of clinical hypnosis over the past several decades and, with Rosen's My Voice Will Go With You, will become a standard work for clinicians studying the work of Milton Erickson and the field of clinical hypnosis in its larger scope. I recommend this work enthusiastically and without reservation. Father James W. Warnke, MSW, LCSW, ACSW, former president, The New York Milton H. Erickson Society; retired faculty, National Pediatric Training Program in Clinical Hypnosis
