I am a student doing a paper on Erickson, in which I have to classify his work according to 9 dicotomic continuums, in doing this I would be very interested in knowing your opinions regarding some of this criteriums:
- Autonomy vs Dependency - is the client, when on hypnotherapy, dependent on the therapist to promote change or is trusted to have enough resources (i.e. capacity to acquire new knowledge, social rules, capacity to learn and understand otherīs point of view)to promote change himself, is he dependent on the therapist or is he responsible for his acomplishments.
- Emotion vs Cognition - which of this two components are deemed to be responsible for the behaviour and attitudes of the pacient, and which is the one more worked in therapy.
- Monism vs Dualism - is there a qualitative difference between a "well adapted individual" and a "pathological individual" or just a quantitative difference. Can we talk about mental diseases or just malfunction.
Thank you for your atention.
