Put_Name_HereMilton H. Erickson

Milton Hyland Erickson, M. D. (1901-1980) specialized in hypnosis and brief therapy and is known as one of the most creative and interesting therapists of all time. Despite the fact that he wrote much on hypnosis, he is probably better known for his unusual non-hypnotic, strategic techniques that were quickly applied and seemed to have long-lasting results with a wide range of clients. Erickson had the ability to quickly understand a situation and find a way of addressing problems briefly. A psychiatrist and a psychologist, he was the founder of the American Society for Clinical Hypnosis. A fellow in the American Psychiatric Assocaition, American Psychological Association, and American Psychopahtolgoical Association, he is noted for his use of metaphor and story telling in clinical work. Known as a "master therapist," he is often the individual other therapists point to in admiration.

Dr. Jeffrey Zeig, Director of the Milton Erickson Foundation (www.erickson-foundation.org), architect of The Evolution of Psychotherapy Conferences (www.evolutionofpsychotherapy.com), and editor or author of more than 20 books (www.zeigtucker.com), tells his reminiscences about Milton H. Erickson.
