ERICKSON FOUNDATION AND SPECIAL GUESTS CELEBRATE FOUNDATION’S NEW HEADQUARTERS AT GRAND OPENING

The Milton H. Erickson Foundation honors both Dr. Erickson and donors with grand opening celebration.

 PHOENIX, Ariz. – October 8, 2012 – In celebration of its new headquarters and to honor Dr. Erickson and patrons who have donated generously, The Milton H. Erickson Foundation will hold a grand opening reception on October 11th, 4:30-6:30 p.m.

Incorporated more than 30 years ago, the Erickson Foundation was established to promote and advance the contributions made to the health sciences by the late Milton H. Erickson, M.D. (1901-1980) who was a seminal force and pioneer in psychiatry and psychotherapy. Dr. Erickson lived and worked in Phoenix for many years and was the archetypical Wounded Healer who was stricken with polio at an early age and then suffered post-polio syndrome in his mid-fifties. However, he rose above his maladies to heal many with physical and mental pain. Dr. Erickson has been called “the father of hypnosis” and is best known for his use of hypnosis and utilization. He believed in the power of the subconscious and maintained that it was always positive, creative, and solution-generated. He also used an approach he coined as “Brief Therapy,” in which therapeutic changes could be made in relatively short sessions.

 GROUNDBREAKING “CIRCULAR THERAPEUTICS” AIMS TO CONNECT MODERN DAY THERAPY WITH COLLECTIVE WISDOM IN TRADITIONAL HEALING

Internationally-recognized as elder healers, psychotherapists and authors, Brad and Hillary Keeney, also known as “The Mojo Doctors,” invite therapists to open their hearts and journey back in time to discover ancient and spiritual forms of healing.

PHOENIX, Ariz. – March 16, 2012 – In their most recent book, Circular Therapeutics, Brad and Hillary Keeney encourage therapists to let go and free themselves from the “imprisonment of any and all models of therapy” and instead become wisdom-based practitioners with healing hearts. Through circular therapeutics, utilization, and improvisation, the Keeneys demonstrate how diverse wisdom traditions can positively impact clinical practice and offer help in restoring one’s “mojo” (a metaphor for the heart of healing –inner resources, gifts and wisdom) to revitalize the therapeutic process. Although written to influence behavioral health professionals, Circular Therapeutics is entertaining, refreshing light and readable and appeals to a wide audience including those who have an interest in traditional healing and cybernetics.

AUTHOR OF THE BREAKOUT HEURISTIC EXPANDS ON NEUROSCIENCE RESEARCH AND PRESENTS TOOLS FOR PSYCHOTHERAPISTS TO CREATE A NEW CONSCIOUSNESS 

Dr. Ernest Rossi’s latest book for creating consciousness documents how behavioral science professionals can better facilitate health and mind-body healing by creating a new consciousness through wonder, wisdom, truth, and beauty.

PHOENIX, Ariz. – March 15, 2012 — Over the last half century, the work of Ernest Lawrence Rossi Ph.D. has had tremendous impact on the field of behavioral science. In his 2007 book, The Breakout Heuristic, a compilation of four decades of his most important articles and papers, Rossi presented his four-stage model of change. It encompasses in-depth brain research, the study of the function of dreams as a precursor to psychic growth, the epiphanies of therapeutic hypnosis and the use of art, beauty, and truth in human relationships to create a new consciousness. Throughout Rossi’s work it is evident that humans are constantly changing with their environment and through the process of self-reflection. As a student, colleague and friend of the late Dr. Milton H. Erickson, who was his mentor for a decade and with whom he co-authored several books, Rossi continues to explore body-mind research and hypnosis and gain news insights on how psychotherapists can make an impact.
