Language, Behavior and Consciousness - Milton Erickson

Dr Milton Erickson was a Great influence to NLP because of the great success he had with his patients using Hypnotherapy.

He mastered and taught  Installation of Multi layered communication to achieve miraculous results.

One of the skills he developed as a sickly youngster was highly attuned observation. He began to take a second and Third look at communication that was happening around him and notice Minor shifts revealing major incongruence to the language spoken.

Milton was a master at Observation so much so that to Patients he was able to develop such deep rapport they felt confident that he knew all about them.

They felt safe finally. The Metaphors he discusses in his Teaching Tales are designed to provoke responses in one way or another.

Richard Bandler and John Grinder were introduced to him through Gregory Bateson. They began to study and Model (through Audio, Video and manuscripts) how Milton was such a wizard with his Patients and the unconventional ways he would move his patients in his "Teaching Tales" style.

They Wrote "Patterns of the Hypnotic Techniques of Milton Erickson Volume 1 and 2 which are great books to have if you do not yet have them.

Here are more books about Milton Erickson which will be in many NLP'ers Library:

My Voice will go with you - Sidney Rosen

Uncommon Therapy - Jay Haley,

Taproots - Bill Ohanlon

Ericksonian Approaches - Rubin Battino

And Also These Exercises on CD

Hypnotherapy - Milton Erickson/Ernest Lawrence Rossi

The Febuary Man - Milton Erickson

A Teaching Seminar with Milton Erickson - Jeffrey Zeig

In fact Anything written by Milton Erickson

And other books which have been written about him may be duplicated to some degree and yet still provide new insight and information.

One of the reasons I enjoy him so much is because of the way he has touched so many lives in Teaching and healing at multiple levels of consciousness and so beautifully.

It is a shame there are not as many Video clips and Audio available that are still great quality. He left a fantastic legacy and some very Large shoes to fill.

I am confident, The more you learn about Milton Erickson's style the more Amazing you will become at NLP.
