Publisher's Summary

As discussed in the first book of this series, Erickson used a naturalistic approach that helped the patient (or client) find his or her own answers within their subconscious minds. He elegantly used stories and metaphors as a tool to do this. This concise book conveniently introduces you to this concept and leads you toward mastery of the application so that you can immediately use his techniques in your practice. 

Milton H. Erickson, M.D. was an American psychiatrist who pioneered several indirect or permissive hypnosis techniques. He also developed several naturalistic techniques using metaphors and stories. He is one of the two most important figures in the development of hypnosis and hypnotherapy in the 20th century. His techniques have been used in behavioral and medical applications. 

This is Book 4 of the Embracing Ambiguity: The Worlds of Ericksonian Hypnosis series.

I purchased a handful of these Ericksonian audios at once and as mentioned in another review I honestly found the narration unbearable. I tried multiple. Returning them now. Perhaps this audio series should be rerecorded and read more appropriately? Please, the content is well worth the effort of rerecording the series and people might begin to really enjoy that. (I'll gladly remove this review if an improved version is released.) I tried to slow it down, speed it up, anything to get around the distracting irregularity of the tone and pace and overall feel of narration, but nothing helped. Thank you.
