Recommended literature

The Wisdom of Milton H. Erickson (Ronald Havens)

Concepts and ideas of Erickson's

work, a must in every
therapists library.
Very understandable and logically explained.
You feel like Erickson is just next to you while you're reading the book and explains it himself.

Solution Focused Brief Therapy (Harvey Ratner)

This book has 100 key points for the solution-oriented short-term therapy approach.
Very clearly and understandably written,
with instructions and case studies. It also contains a chapter with self-supervision, which is very useful. 

 

 

The Breakout Heuristic

(Ernest Lawrence Rossi)

A very neuroscientific book, which explains the connections between therapy and science and how to make human physiology and psychobiology positively useful in the process.
Although it is rather theoretical, it can be read very nicely and remains exciting until the end. 

When One Hour is All You Have

(Arnold Slive & Monte Bobele)

A book which illustrates the Mental Health Walk In/ Fast Track in times where time is getting shorter and shorter and there is little time for psychotherapy. It shows how to work out a tailored solution with the client in just one hour. It also includes various insights into existing Mental Health Walk In's.

Der Februarmann/ The February Man (Miltton Erickson &Ernest L. Rossi)

A book which is rather suitable for advanced students, it describes the personality development of a young lady. It reflects the extensive microdynamics of the treatment. A central basis of NLP. "The change of personal history".

experiential psychotherapy with couples (Rob Fischer)

An understandable book for couple therapy, which illustrates system theories practically in a great way and offers strategic case studies as well as intervention examples. Since working with couples is becoming more and more challenging, you should have a good background, the book guides you step by step how to stay mentally flexible and calm in the process and when and how to intervene. 

Praxis Aromatherapie

Monika Werner Ruth v. Braunschweig

Every therapist should consider aromatherapy, as aromas can be used in a targeted way in the process without the client knowing. This activates the olfactory area in the brain.
This book contains the basics, profiles and indications. It comprehensively describes which aromas are effective in somatic as well as psychological complaints and can be used in a targeted manner.

Uncommon Therapy

Jay Haley

Awesome book, very understandable

and sorted by topics
with lots of case illustrations which illustrates the work
of Erickson perfectly.
