My Voice Will Go With You
The Teaching Tales of Milton H Erickson
Edited and with commentary by Sidney
During the course of therapy, Milton H Erickson would frequently tell seemingly unrelated stories. Tales of previous clients, his family and other apparent trivia peppered his sessions, both in and out of hypnosis.
This book is a collection of some of his most famous stories and case studies with a friend of his, Sydney Rosen, providing the context. Rosen gives possible explanations for why each story is told without destroying their magic, as often happens with academic interpretations.
This book not only gives an insight into the way Erickson thought, but provides the reader with an introduction to teaching by storytelling and maybe even a little therapeutic effect! Who knows?
