Milton H. Erickson, M.D.: An American Healer
By Betty Alice Erickson, Bradford Keeney
This volume, written by members of Milton Erickson's family, uniquely explores the personal side of this world famous psychiatrist.
Told from the perspective of three of his children, it is a remarkable spiritual journey. As a part of his life-long struggle to overcome the physical effects of polio, Erickson acquired prodigious observational and interactional skills, as well as a powerfully calm healing presence.
With photographs, stories, and a DVD of one of his clinical sessions, this book brings to light the quiet spirituality of an extraordinary healer.
Rarely does a genius qualify as exemplary teacher, friend, lover, family member. Milton Erickson is such a one. Readers of this book will learn about a human genius, Western shaman, soul doctor (psych-iatrist), a charming, simply wise man. Thanks to his family and friends he will be deservingly appreciated by a greater audience. --ForeWord Magazine
