Milton Erickson Overcame Handicaps and Controversy to Become a Father of Modern Hypnotherapy

Milton Erickson overcame two bouts of polio and a debilitating case of dyslexia to become the father of modern hypnotherapy. He broke new ground and changed psychotherapy. Ericksonian hypnosis is considered a more compassionate and permissive form of hypnotherapy than the authoritarian traditional methods. Erickson believed all the necessary resources for healing and transformation could be found in the unconscious.
