Erickson's approach, like Aikido, violin, and other complex crafts really take a lifetime to master, I suppose. Some people are used to obtaining a new trick from each workshop they attend and they apply that to Erickson approach workshops too. They won't really learn the approach that way. To make a lifetime learning curve useful (prior to the end of life!) one ought to introduce simple goals into client systems that are already familiar. This is the opposite of what I thought you were doing...that is, introducing a terribly complex intervention/goal into a client system that is unfamiliar. If you do it the other way around you will find that within a year of so lots of the bits and pieces fall together and the application of these interesting goals/interventions will start making sense in an ever widening client/problem population. Thanks for understanding that that previous comment was not a personal "attack" on you and too for making it possible to put this dialog out in this forum.
