Understanding Ericksonian Psychotherapy The Selected Writings of Sidney Rosen

Understanding Ericksonian Psychotherapy The Selected Writings of Sidney Rosen

Author: Victor Kiarsis Format: Hardback Release Date: 10/12/2019

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.
