The Teaching Tales of Milton H. Erickson
"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. Presented verbatim and accompanied by Dr. Rosen's commentary, they are grouped under such headings as Motivating Tales, Reframing, and Capturing the Innocent Eye.

Endorsements & Reviews
“[A] most readable volume, rich in personal memories and comments by Dr. Rosen.... The stories give indirect suggestions, show how to overcome habitual limitation, re-frame experiences from negative to positive and discover values. The result is a remarkable combination of entertaining reading offering personal psychological insight.” — Los Angeles Times
“There is much in this book for any clinician of any persuasion to learn from or adopt in his own work.... Rosen's book helps us share in Erickson's magnificent vision.” — American Journal of Psychoanalysis
“An excellent collection of Erickson's teaching tales.... The stories are entertaining to read, but—more than that—every reader is likely to find them educational in a quite personal and unexpected way.” — Jay Haley, director, Family Therapy Institute, Washington, D.C.
