Summary

Milton H. Erickson, M.D. is generally acknowledged to have been the world's leading practitioner of medical hypnosis. His "strategic therapy," using hypnotic techniques with or without actually inducing trance, allows him to get directly to the core of a problem and prescribe a course of action that can lead to rapid recovery.

This audiobook provides a comprehensive look at Dr. Erickson's theories in practice, through a series of case studies covering the kinds of problems that are likely to occur at various stages of the human life cycle. The results Dr. Erickson achieves sometimes seem to border on the miraculous, but they are brought about by a finely honed technique used by a wise, intuitive, highly trained psychiatrist-hypnotist whose work is recognized as a major contribution to the field. 

Uncommon Therapy is masterfully narrated by Brian Arens, an Audible listener favorite.

Great work

The work of Milton Ericsson is outstanding , His ability to differentiate his approach to each patient with respect to the specific case is maybe unique .Highly recommended .

Magical!

Psychopathic behaviour is more common in normal people. Beware of the people around you.

So where are the examples?

Hours and hours of generalities. There is no example of any specific language Milton used.

Better Than Fiction

I couldn't get enough of these novel therapy tales. I listened at .65× to make it good and hypnotic. The narrator's voice sounded a bit more like recordings of Dr. Erickson that way.
