I'm afraid I don't know the source of you quote and 'knowledge' about Erickson's view on alcoholism. Can you provide that, please.
I think you mean 'fractionation' and not fragmentation.
Erickson states clearly that he does not need deep or medium trance to cure problems (Ocean Monarch series-p. 3 of EXPERIENCING HYPNOSIS)...so, the comment that the 6-part reframing uses fractionation and achieves a light trance is not incompatible.
Finally, the posting implied that idea that 'calling on creative parts' outside of consciousness is somehow different than what does take place in hypnosis ala Erickson's approach, however, 'retrieving experience' (helpful and creative, presumably) is exactly what Erickson considers necessary for cure....However, Erickson, never made the claim that he could cure alcoholism in one session. Every person is unique in their etiology and require unique communication and unique experiences to be associated and dissociated - and too - each has a different discomfort level and motive/motivation for seeking aid. Erickson would usually aim at helping the whole person and not removing a symptom only. To the extent alcoholism is/was a symptom, then, the unique person needs to be addressed and a promise of one session cure would be unethical or at least unprofessional. I don't know if these thought are what you were looking for or not.
