Doug O'Brien- Neo-Ericksonian Hypnosis and Humor in Havening~Dr. Milton Erickson's adroit use of story, metaphor, and hypnosis in psychotherapy, along with his subtle use of language and indirect suggestions, not only revolutionized the field of hypnosis, it had profound influence on the creation of a number of approaches to psychotherapy including brief therapy, strategic family therapy, family systems therapy, solution focused brief therapy, and neuro-linguistic programming. Since his death in 1980 the field of Ericksonian Hypnosis has continued to evolve and seamlessly integrates with the Havening Techniques in ways that enhance both.
