You are, of course, correct in that my point could not possibly capture all of the different facets of Dr. Erickson's approach. I do like to try and 'chunk' these things down in an effort to integrate them and so I hope that my posts are seen as attempts at that and not as definitive outlines of Erickson's methods. (I have not yet qualified for that role!) That being said, I really appreciate your responses. It is really helpful to hear the perspectives of the individuals whose books I read! I do like the idea of integrating conscious learnings with unconscious ones therapeutically. What actually happens in the mind of the client during these periods can certainly be looked at in more detail, but I like the idea of being able to approach it at some level of abstraction. Thanks also for your tips on my other post regarding ages of psychological development. I've taken several courses in that area and am now reading Uncommon Therapy. I like the way it outlines some of the major struggles that different stages of life bring with them. Thanks again!
