"A chalice of wisdom for our time."--Ernest L. Rossi, Ph.D., C.J. Jung Institute of Los Angeles Milton H. Erickson has been called the most influential hypnotherapist of our time. Part of his therapy was his use of teaching tales, which through shock, surprise, or confusion--with genius use of questions, puns, and playful humor--helped people to see their situations in a new way. In this book Sidney Rosen has collected over one hundred of the tales.

Excellent book and I am already biased a bit towards this particular hypnotist. A list of great stories from Dr Erickson. ( )

Fascinating the way that Milton Erickson used the power of metaphor to heal his clients. The stories are often deceptively simple, but they obviously worked because people were prepared to travel hundreds of miles for a consultation with this great psychiatrist and hypnotist. A must read for healers. ( )

Dalla lettura di questo gradevole testo emerge quanto E. fosse una persona dotata di grande genio e incredibile sensibilità, e allo stesso tempo di quanto noi ne siamo sprovvisti. Difficile ripercorrere le stesse strategie di saggezza, ma questi racconti sono lì per ricordarci che sono possibili. Il libro è a cura di un collega di E. e i suoi intercalari dovrebbero essere saltati per apprezzare più interamente l'umorismo e l'astuzia dei racconti. ( )

Books Read in the Past:

I admire and use Ericksonian techniques, and found this book to be quite good enough, but it's not one of the most spectacular therapist training texts I've encountered. ( )
