Product Reviews from The Milton H. Erickson Foundation Newsletter

Dr. Eric Greenleaf

This program[Preparing for Uncertainty], and The Hypnosis Experience, will be useful to new or seasoned hypnotherapists looking for examples of skillful work. The discs could be sent home with clients for practice and growth. The clinician could use them that way, too.

Dr. Joyce Mills

Listening to the CD also may serve as a training tool for therapists who want to learn how to apply Ericksonian techniques to their child psychology practice, and how to pace trancework with children. From my perspective, this CD set is excellent and I recommend adding it to your library.

The Milton H. Erickson Foundation Newsletter, Summer 2006

Dr. Michele Ritterman

While [Dr. Ritterman] skillfully incorporates the standard Ericksonian techniques into these trances, her wonderful style and approach also are uniquely her own . . . Overall, I highly recommend the CD for therapists to have as a resource in their libraries, for couples who want a 'take home' tape for trancework, or for therapists who wish to sample Ritterman's approach.

The Milton H. Erickson Foundation Newsletter, Summer 2006

Dr. John Dyckman

Teaching stories are a time-honored way of transmitting wisdom. Dr. Dyckman skillfully presents such stories and combines them with the added therapeutic potential of the trance state. His program gives parents an opportunity to share this experience with their children while at the same time fostering an attitude of relaxation and curiosity.
