Erickson was one of the most creative, dynamic and effective hypnotherapists and psychotherapists of the twentieth century. He used unconventional techniques with remarkable success. He was the founder of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis and was a life fellow of the American Psychiatric Association. He received his M.D. from the University of Wisconsin and was founding editor of the "American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis.

Erickson's lifelong work. Gleaned from the records of over 140 publications and lectures given by Erickson during his career, this combined volume is without a doubt essential literature on the important man. Part One on Human Behavior, and Part Two on Psychotherapy, present Erickson's methods and lessons, including his feelings on the use of objective observation, the uniqueness of the conscious mind, the realities and abilities of the unconscious mind, the creation-and use of a therapeutic environment, and many other aspects of the life and work of this remarkable thinker and teacher. Part Three, Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy, presents a important account of how Dr. Erickson conceived of hypnosis, particularly its access to the unconscious and its role in the process of therapy.
