Hi my name is Eugene Morgan.  You maybe wondering about the title of this blog.  It’s about making positive changes in our lives.  The goal of this blog is to put out information about mental health and/or self-improvement, hypnosis, Ericksonian principles and more.

I have worked in the mental health field since 1999 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.   My job title is Secretary II which entails more than just answering phone calls, scheduling doctor’s appointments.  It also involves a lot of problem solving and/or directing patients to the right source and now as a call center representative in the crisis department.

What I have learned over the years working at an outpatient mental health facility is that the smallest changes can make a big difference in a person’s life.  Over and over again, I have seen patients at their worse at the beginning of treatment.  And I have seen these same patients at their best at the end of treatment.  Today, they are a change person with a new view on life.

I have been fascinated about human behavior and psychology.  In 1994, I received an Associate Degree in Behavioral Sciences/Psychology.  In 1995, I received a certificate  in  hypnotherapy with the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners in San Diego, CA.   From 1996-1998, I have provided free hypnosis session services for HIV/AIDS clients in San Diego.

While in college I read many case studies on different schools of psychology rational emotive therapy, behavioral therapy, cognitive therapy, etc.  A professor of mine  had suggested case studies of Dr. Milton H. Erickson.   When I read some of his case studies, I was hooked.  He was a maverick in the field of psychiatry, brief therapy, and a great contributor in the field of medical hypnosis.  Since then, I continue to study his work.

Dr. Erickson exhibited a celebration life philosophy through his humor, he was a master at turning liabilities into assets, helping patient to let go of the past and look toward the future, and so on.  On many occasions he had told stories, anecdotes, and one-liners to his patients and students to enlarge the possibilities of their minds.  For example, ‘Out of a wheelchair, I win championships daily.’  That’s a powerful one-liner coming from a man who was stricken with polio after graduating from school high, and then living his last days with physical pain “limited” to his wheelchair.

We can learn something from this man and people like him.  My aim for this blog is to help us (me included) to apply some these principles or tips in our everyday lives to make positive changes in our lives. I hope you will join in this journey with me.

Thank you,
