Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It was with considerable excitement that I realized that...this volume has been recently reissued. The value of The February Man is that it consists of the transcript of an entire course of hypnotherapy, conducted by Erickson in 1945, long before he became known to the therapeutic community at large. This is a decided advantage for the reader, permitting careful examination of what Erickson actually said and did with this particular client. In structuring the repeating episodes of hypnotic age regression in the transcript of [this book], Erickson tells the client, 'You are going to see me...again and again.' With any luck, the same will be true for current and future generations of therapists through continued access to his writings." -Steven N. Gold in PsycCRITIQUES December 2009, Vol.54
Transcripts and commentaries connected with a hypotherapeutic case from a phase in Erickson's career when his ideas were being developed. The report documents the use of multiple levels of consciousness and meaning to access and reframe traumatic memories that were the source of a young woman's severe phobias and depression.
