Never expires.


The interviews that make up this volume share Dr. Erickson’s methods of dealing with whole families, and his therapy of children. Taken from recorded conversations by Jay Haley and John Weakland from 1958 to 1961, they present the techniques and processes of a therapist who had already been pursuing methods of therapy the rest of the world had barely begun. Throughout the course of these conversations, Erickson continually refocuses the attention of the interviewers back to what he thinks is important: the operations to induce change. The conversations cover family interview techniques, disengaging family members, the ordeals of parents and children, and dealing with the difficult family.
