Talking Therapy Ep 28 Dr. Jeffrey Zeig on the Evolution of Psychotherapy and Milton H. Erickson

As founder and CEO of the Milton H. Erickson Foundation Dr. Jeffrey Zeig has gathered together some of the greatest minds and most dominant personalities in the history of psychotherapy. The foundation’s Evolution of Psychotherapy conference is perhaps the largest gathering of its kind anywhere in the world. Bringing together dynamic speakers and curious professionals it is, as Dr. Zeig calls it, “the Woodstock of therapy”. Dr. Zeig joins us to talk about the conference and his history with his mentor and teacher, Milton H. Erickson. He also talks about focusing his efforts to learn new ways of being a therapist by studying the arts. This is a truly fascinating discussion that not only spans the history of therapy but also looks into the future.

Talking Therapy Ep. 24 The Human Emotional System with Adrian Hall, MFT

Human emotions are a tricky thing. Some of us are good with them, some of us are not, but few of us really understand them fully. Adrian Hall, MFT joins us to talk about what she calls, the Human Emotional System. As we grow up, she tells us, we learn about math, science, history and our biological systems, but no one teaches us about our emotions and this can cause problems for us later. Adrian discusses her practice of psychotherapy and how she works with people to do that learning now.
